Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. Thank you for deciding to stop by to visit with me. In the last day or so I received several emails with a similar question. Why? I believe why is a very good question. I asked that question about God, myself and my situation for many years. As I look back on my recovery process, I believe “Why?” became an essential part of my healing process. Why gave me the capacity to move beyond my pain, my disillusionment, disappointment and discouragement.
Why gave me the ability to move beyond what I could not understand. Why gave me the ability to make sense of my reality.
Why became an essential part of my healing process because why helped me to grieve. Why helped me to question and challenge the messages that Denial gave to me. Why helped me to process the Anger that I had towards what I could not understand — but realized that I could not chance — once I started to come out of my denial. Why helped me to sort through the process of Bargaining or the “what if” stage of my grieving process — as I attempted to change my reality.
Why then helped me to survive what I considered to be the dark night of the soul. Why allowed me to linger in depression until I was able and ready to surrender to / accept my reality. Why empowered my process as I reached a place of surrender and Acceptance. Why then empowered my process and gave me the motivation to look for solutions. Why helped me to realize that I was not helpless or hopeless because of what I could not change.
Why helped me to move beyond my disillusionment, disappointment and discouragement. Why helped me to realize that I did not have to be alone in my process and that I could ask for help.
Why then taught me that my circumstances were never meant to keep me down, but that they were instead designed to build me up. Why taught me that I was being led in the direction of my destiny. Why taught me how to empower my process. Why gave me the motivation to learn from the experiences of my reality. Why prepared me to take advantage of the opportunities that became available to me. Why taught me to do the footwork and let go of the outcomes.
Why taught me that I no longer needed to buy into the notion that I was a victim of my reality. Why gave me the emotional fortitude to execute tenacity and perseverance — when giving up and giving in would have been much easier to do. Why taught me that I have a future and a hope. Why reinforced the reality that I will fulfill the plan and purpose for my life. Why pointed and continues to point me in the direction of my destiny. Why gives me hope.
Why uses my limitations and deficits — for my good. Why gives me faith because infinite possibilities exist. Why not also gives me hope.
