My Why

Sunday, August 05, 2018

The SparkCoach question today is what is your why...

My why has a lot to do with healing. The short version is that I've finally reached a place in my healing that I can. The longer version is that I want to move beyond being merely a survivor to someone who embodies my word of the year for 2018..."Flourish"

It is time to transition into living in the hard earned healing and growth I've done in other areas of my life and to finally release the weight. It no longer serves me and it's time to let it go.

For the first time in my life I'm on this journey solely for me. No one suggested it. No doctor or other professional claimed it would be the solution to all my health issues. No one hurt my feelings with words or looks of disgust as has happened in the past. I don't even have a long term goal in mind beyond getting into ONEderland. I just want to see what I am capable of. What happens when I actually invest some of my compassion, care and effort into ME for once.

Perhaps if I summed up my why it would be this...I want to prove to myself that all those limits I believed in aren't real and never were.

"I'm through accepting limits cause someone says they're so...some things I cannot change but til I try I'll never know..." - Defying Gravity from Wicked
