Thankful Thursday
Life happens. We get hurt. These hurts become wounds from which we create layers of ‘protection’ to shield ourselves from further hurt. But have you ever stopped to consider whether these layers of protection actually really work?
I’m grateful to have learned that there comes a time in life that we can decide whether or not to act from our ‘wounds.' 

Sometimes, the decision not to act from the wound becomes it’s healing.
I’ve purposely grown through my own experiences. I’ve questioned my reactions and I’m still growing through them, just like all of us. 
So often we become experts in things we never wanted to know about. 
The reality is, things have happened to me, and I never wanted to have to go through the pain and devastation that’s brought me here today. And yet, the reality is, I did go through it, and we are here. 
So how can we move forward with more love than pain? 
And that is what ‘walking through the Valley’ means. 
This reminds me of how precious life really is. In recent times, I’ve been asking myself:  what has death taught me? How can it help me show up more today? 
I’ve learned that grief changes us. 
When we go through that ‘dark night’ we come out with a new perspective. 
What’s helped me to fully walk through my ‘dark night’ without judging the journey is to finally accept that there’s no expediting grief. You can’t rush it. Haven’t we tried?! There’s no cure. There’s no shortcut. 
The grieving process is a natural, organic experience of life and it does serve a purpose. 
Healing begins with healing our thoughts. Everything begins with a thought. We can’t change what happened. Our thoughts are not bringing our loved ones back. That’s beyond our power. 

We can’t change what happened but we can change our response to what happened. We can change our thoughts. 
When we change the way we experience life, and even the way we continue to heal from grief and trauma, it’s interesting to notice our patterns. 
I ask myself: Are my thoughts moving me towards healing, or are they keeping me stuck? 
Think about how we say things like: I’m never going to heal; I’m never going to be happy again; I’m never going to live again. Those thoughts don’t help the healing process. Our pain stops us from seeing ahead to what’s possible. 

Something that’s helped me in these situations is changing my inner narrative and saying to myself: ‘I’m open to being happy again. I can’t see it. I don’t know how it’s even possible, but I’m open to the possibility.’ 
This has meant me focusing on removing those words like ‘never’ or ‘I’m always going to be in my pain’ or ‘I’m never going to be happy again.’  
I focus on finding some curiosity which allows me to open my mind and my heart to expanded possibilities.
I have hope for me and  I have hope for you. We're learning together, we're growing together, and I hope this post helps you find some healing. With love from my healing heart to yours, Jx
