I my last post I told you I was going to share more lessons I learned from the accident and, believe me, there are plenty!
When I was in the hospital for seven days, I had the chance to feel sorry for myself or to look at this as a ‘makeover story’. I chose the makeover story.
Before the accident I was not happy. I had all the great stuff – faith, family, my business, etc. but my feelings didn’t match what it looked like on the outside.
While I was in the hospital, even with all the pain, I had never felt so happy, content, and peaceful. That’s because God was telling me to use this time to regroup. What a blessing this time was for me.
I analyzed how much time I was spending with God, I analyzed my relationship with my family, and I analyzed my business and why I was feeling that something just wasn’t right.
And, I took a good, hard look at myself. I was the one who needed to change.
I realized I wasn’t living the values that I wanted others to see in me and that made me who I am. There are a ton of values to pick from, but I chose authenticity, safety, order, and self-care. Authenticity was the big one.
What people saw and what I felt like inside did not match. Thank goodness for makeovers! In the hospital I made some big decisions on how I would live authentically from this day over. It was scary but also the best feeling ever!
Instead of living how I was living I decided to take on Living Perfectly.Flawed. This meant that I owned up to mistakes from the past, but they were not going to define my future. This meant being present now and being the best me I could be now. It didn’t happen overnight! But it did happen. My makeover happened.
