Finding the gift


In everything there exists a gift,
In every circumstance, every perceived challenge or struggle,
It is only up to us to find it.
To ask, ‘
‘How can I turn this in my favour?’,
‘How can I make this a victory?’

For example, as a child growing up with a disability and being very ill at times I grew to hate hospitals, at best I found them extremely boring. This was up until I learnt how I could turn literally anything in to an opportunity and decided to see it this way instead.

I decided that instead of hating the hospital or finding it boring whenever I had to go I would instead see it as an opportunity of what I could transform, how I could create something that might seem impossible in to a possibility and from then on it became more like an adventure of what victory I could have to then share with others.

And the best part of all is that it worked

One instance is when I broke my wrist two years ago and instead of becoming defeated and fed up, I decided to find out the quickest possible time I could recover and make it happen, not only this but I was told I would likely need an operation in the first week to adjust the bone. I focused on it healing perfectly and quickly without the need for an op and after a week I was told I didn’t need the operation and in addition the cast was off in just 5 weeks. My wrist is now stronger than ever!

I tracked all of this recovery journey on You Tube, and the 5week video now has nearly 20’000 views. I say all this to really demonstrate how no matter what the situation may be, you really can make something in to a great positive, and this is just one of many examples of how this can be done.

We never have to be defeated unless we choose to be.

Think today of the things you can turn around in your favour to inspire more possibility and opportunity ? 💕

Every difficulty
Can be an opportunity
Every struggle can be a strength
It is what you choose to focus on that will really get you through anything,
To a place where you thought you would never be
To a place where you’re more than you’ve ever been
