Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are right!
I thought I couldn't and now I know I can!
I am living proof that it is not about changing the situation but changing the way you respond to it that counts. By changing the way I responded to health issues my body has become fitter and healthier and my mind is calmer and happier. I have more energy and pleasure in my life that I would have ever believed possible.
I do what I do because it has worked for me, 10 years ago I was registered disabled, walking with crutches and struggling to do the daily duties my family demanded let alone build a career, a business, a social life and enjoy it!
Then I went to an evening NLP class and my life began to change.
For years I had tried many different alternative, complementary and mainstream therapies to “cure” me of ME, Fibromyalgia, IBS, allergies plus more weird and not so wonderful symptoms that I had “suffered” from since my teens. I was fighting against what I had.
I haven’t found a cure but I no longer suffer, that makes sense to me I hope it does to you!
As it turns out I have a genetic condition so as one doctor put it "I was made wrong" but how I experienced these conditions was greatly affected by my fear, anxiety and frustration at the pain, symptoms and restriction it brought to mind and therefore my life.
When I learnt to let go of the fight and fear in my body, to let go of that fear and anxiety and the projected worst case scenario I was constantly imagining, then the impact of the bits that don’t work so well was greatly reduced.
The beliefs that had limited me had been removed, and now consequently most people on meeting me would have no idea that anything was not quite as it should be (the temptation is to use the word wrong but for me I am made just right.) See it is all a matter of perception!
So there began my journey of study and building a business to support others with physical or emotional pain.
One very strong part of my personality is that I get excited! I have lots of ideas and if it feels good, I will do it. This may come from the years of being repressed by illness, so I have always said "When the going gets tough, that's when I get my best ideas."
Lying in bed for weeks with the Flu last New Year I created The Magnificent Me Project. I recognised I wasn't the only one who had faced challenges in life head on and created something that not only helped myself, but helped hundreds of others who have found themselves in similar situations.
This in itself is reward enough, but I wanted everyone to know that however bad things got, others had survived and thrived under those same circumstances.
So what better way to celebrate than by spending a day experiencing just some of the stories and experiences of others that did just that.
