I know I’m not alone in my dislike or frustration about restrictions being placed on us. Limitations being imposed by external sources are often beyond our control. Ultimately what we have power over is our feeling and choice of response to any given situation. We maintain exclusive control over the thoughts allowed to occupy space in our mind and therefore the feelings that result from them. Overcoming these limitations offers a sense of accomplishment, empowerment, pride and joy. I find myself at home for the second time this year as a result of decisions made for me, not by me. Thankfully, my understanding about the power of my mind and my consistent desire for positivity have afforded me the opportunity to develop myself both personally and professionally. Writing my first book and building my coaching business has been my focus and what I feel as a result of this decision is accomplished, empowered, proud and happy!
