Thank you for joining me for some reflection time! I hope we come to know each other a little better.
I wrote this post one morning as I really struggled to cope, to accept, to hope…ACCEPTANCE!
When I think back I can still recall how visceral my emotion was that morning.
With no avenues left to follow, we were forced to accept that the situation was outside of our control. We had to sit back and develop patience. We tried to listen with love, we spoke with love and we encouraged with love. We learned to trust, to hope and to let go control. We let go our need to fix, our need for things to be as we thought they should be.
As I stop now and look back, it’s amazing how acceptance, love and time changed things!
Hardly eighteen months on, time has intervened…
With time, he re-tuned his body clock. He began to re-engage with life. His motivation to study slowly improved. He spoke of sitting his exams. We quietly encouraged him to do what he thought was best for him… And it worked!
He took back power over his own life. He regained his voice; the damage from bullying put behind him. He decided how he wanted his future to look. Having reaching his first mid-term of his first year of college we see… that acceptance, love and time... was the key.
It is the only key!
What challenges have really stretched your resilience? What was the key to overcoming your challenge?
