I am Changing:

heart and mind, inspiration, life

The first thing I had to learn with having an autoimmune disease was to take a moment to mourn the old me.

One of the hardest things to do with the diagnosis is to admit that things had in fact changed. As a mother, entrepreneur, and veteran I was used to being able to get up and go workout, be a choreographer, play with my children or even cleaning my own home, but the reality now is that I cannot do all of that. As a matter of fact, I can’t do most of it.

To take care of my body I had to now make different life decisions and that is not easy. I wanted to do what I used to do especially because visually I look the way I have always looked. I am a person of faith, but I had to increase my knowledge of my body and my health. I had to put the attention I used to work outside of the home and direct that energy into learning about me.

If you are going through a life change no matter what the change entails, it is ok to mourn the old you. Acknowledge what was, honor that person from the past so that you can welcome and usher in the new you.

If you do not mourn and put away the old you, your past persona will then become a weighted blanket smothering your new potential. Because don’t forget. just because your different doesn’t mean you’re any less magnificent!
