Loss Can Be The Catalyst That Creates Your Best Life

We give our experiences in life an emotional identity.

It took me time to understand that.

The events in our lives are truly neutral, it’s our thoughts that give it the powerful emotion that we connect with the experience. The event or circumstance has no meaning until we give it meaning and every event and circumstance in our life you have the power to attach positive thinking and meaning to.

I know that some of you are thinking, that’s cr*p.

Truthfully to create your best life you have to be responsible for your experiences!

Watch this video and see the power of putting time between an event and the thought or meaning you give it.

We are not always responsible for the events in our life, but we are always responsible for our view of the experience. Each experience we choose how we view it. Often we accept the thoughts that have formulated from our past experiences as fact.

I remember saying, “I can’t believe this happened to me,” over and over again after my daughter died. I didn’t understand there was a place inside mw where I got to choose my view of the experience.

When we raise our awareness of these thoughts and change them we are taking control of our life.

We move from being a victim of our past to being responsible for our life. Here is where the loss or challenging event can be the catalyst that moves us forward to create and live a life without limits!

To create your best life begin with your thoughts. Ask yourself, “How do I view my most challenging life events?”

It’s this shift in thinking that is required to take control of our lives to move past the pain, grief, guilt,  emotions that we are holding onto from our past experiences.

To Your Life Without Limits,

Live a life without limits

    Sorry for your loss. Making a positive outcome from a loss requires tremendous strength, and constant tending. I believe in post traumatic growth as a choice to life’s difficult events. It is how we honor our loved ones, by finding our path onward. That can only be done one task and one step at a time. Good luck to you, and to all who find themselves in situations that require choosing “growth.” It isn’t easy. It takes a lot longer than you might think it ought to, but it is worth the effort and it cannot be rushed. Be realistic about what you can and can’t do, and treat yourself and those around you with respect and kindness.

      I agree Catherine it is a choice. So many times we don’t realize we have a choice. We become comfortable and it takes awareness to change and choose growth. Thank you for your kind words.

    I remember so well the first time I heard someone tell me “Nothing has meaning except the meaning you give it”. It made my brain do somersaults and it took me a bit to grasp it. However, it has taken on a new meaning for me and it has helped me move beyond many situations and events in my life that I was stuck in because I had given it a defined meaning! Thanks for a great post.

      Your welcome Diane Marie. I agree it took me awhile to grasp that also but when you do you have the power to create the life you desire and deserve!
