If I had to sum up the overall difference between how I experienced my life before the stroke, and now I would say; that things that were nice concepts before feel like true realities now. While I used to THINK of gratitude in the past, now I FEEL gratitude in the very cells of my being, I use to THINK of the physical, mental and spiritual bodies. Now I intimately KNOW my physical body and that it is working to grow stronger. And I have really MET my mental and spiritual bodies too. I now know that my mental body needs to be discerning rather than judgmental in order to allow it to pursue its lifelong quest to learn more. I clearly feel that my spiritual body houses my attitude and that the basis of that attitude is my ability to express my gratefulness for everything that comes my way, which provides me with a basis for continuing true healing.
ONE AREA OF OUR LIFE that often seems to present challenges is our “management” of time. Our ego can create a worry, which causes us to feel that there is not enough time in the day to accomplish all that we need to do. Or perhaps we allow ourselves to feel that we are so much busier than others that we know. We may impede our relationship with time by telling ourselves “I really want to do that, but I just do not have the time.”
