I wrote this back in February, it is good to see my progress since. Have you ever thought to check your beliefs when you get sick? And .. more often? 🙂
I considered myself pretty healthy, no disease, no pain, nothing to complain about. By experiencing the flu these days, for the second time in the last 50 days, it was a little strange! I took this opportunity to reflect on what’s going on in my life.
Since January, I’m flooded with creative ideas for my business and I’m working frenetically to put them in place. I’m so passionate about what I’m doing, that sometimes I’m on my computer all night to finish some of my projects. Last week, I had a workshop on Friday evening, I facilitate a meeting Saturday morning and had my workshop for singles in the afternoon, and another JET meeting in my house on Sunday. All these added to a full-time job, promoting my business, updating my website with the new product, testimonials, PayPal payment, etc. Sometimes I don’t eat enough or not at all. Exercices, who has time or energy for them?! No wonder why the flu found a very comfortable place in my weak body these days!
Did you ever think that sickness is a signal that something is not right in your life?! Well, having the time now (I’m sick in bed!), I took the time to think about it. Don’t worry, it’s not an Internet virus .. you won’t be affected.. unless you’re like me! 😉
Oh boy, how did I end up forgetting about myself?! Am I less important than what I want to create in my life? How can I help other people when I’m ignoring myself? I had to get sick again to understand how important it is to take care of myself!
The big “Aha” was when I realized that I have a belief that doesn’t serve me anymore! For years I didn’t take any supplements and didn’t exercise too much. I was ok with my healthy eating style and the weekend outings (walking, hiking, biking). I finally realized that, if I want to create outstanding results in my life and in other people’s lives, I need more energy to do it! If not, I would have them by now! That being said, I have to let go of my limiting belief “I don’t need supplements!” Of course, this doesn’t replace the food, more exercises and taking time to recharge my “batteries”, it will be just a “supplement” to get the life I want. Anyone wants to be my accountability buddy for the Physical Pillar?! I will focus on this one now, to catch up with the others.
I hope I shed some light on sickness. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just the Universe showing us that we need to step back and pay more attention to what’s going on in our life. Are there any adjustments to be done? What limiting belief(s) is stopping us from achieving our goals?
