🎉 Mind's Chronicle: Just crossed the one-week treatment milestone with 8 days of chemo and 6 radiation sessions. Today's bloodwork brought good tidings. Feeling a surge of strength, a hymn of healing playing in my veins, and a heart brimming with gratitude.
Now, let's delve into today's reflection:
There's a phrase, akin to a silent spell, that often binds our potential - "I can't." If this resonates, send a power-up my way! If not, journey with me for a moment, you might find a new perspective.
For a significant stretch of my adult life, I was an avid collector of self-doubts, with "I can't" being my prized possession. That was until the realization dawned that every "I can't" was an assassin to my "I dids." Pause for a beat, let that sink in. Does it mirror your narrative too?
The ease of uttering "I can't" often outweighs the courage to venture into the unknown, to expose oneself to possible failures, judgements, or being an outlier. It's a terrifying realm, isn't it?
Transitioning from a 'can't' to a 'did' often feels like traversing through a bustling street, naked. The judgements will rain down, yet remember, they stem from others' lack of courage to shatter the norms.
Consider the audacious spirit of the one who morphed a simple skateboard into a vessel that soars 25 feet into the air, defying gravity and naysayers. This act of breaking free from the "can't" shackles birthed a new norm, celebrated in every X Games. What a spectacle of human potential!
The "I can't" mantra is a self-fulfilling prophecy. As long as you're entangled in excuses, swayed by others' opinions, or living someone else's story, the hero within you remains in slumber.
Is your spirit yearning for more? Craving a taste of what it feels like to conquer the "can't?" Here's a modest proposition: Stand tall, take a purposeful stride towards your vision, embrace the falls, the stumbles, and rise with a stronger resolve. This isn't a sprint, it's a marathon towards self-fulfillment. Cherish each step, each fall, and each rise.
Your narrative of "I did" is awaiting its birth, a story poised to inspire. I'm here, cheering for each "I did" you're about to collect on your journey.
Your continuous flow of positive vibes is a treasure. Here's to more "I dids" and fewer "I can’ts."
With a heart full of love and gratitude.❤️
