The purpose of relaying the following story is not to evoke some sort of sympathy for a painful experience; but rather it is to inform you on how I got myself out of a very low point in my life. As you read, I am sure many of you will recall experiences far more painful than my story. My hope is that you will glean something from the habits I developed during this crisis and perhaps benefit from their application in resolving your own.
So, there I was, on top of the world. I had a great marriage, my children were doing well, and I was truly enjoying my profession. I was happy.
I was still using my affirmations, “I can be what I will to be” and “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy,” morning and night, and several times during the day. I was feeling healthy and vital, applying all the tools I have outlined in the previous sections.
Then, my mom passed away.
