“TRUST”

ear1“This is my pretty little left ear. I’m paying homage to it because it’s asking for my attention.

On Wednesday July 26th at 11am it stopped hearing. I know what time it was because it was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.  I knew something was wrong.  My ear stopped working.

Two emergency rooms, MRI, CT Scan, blood work, steroids, another MRI and a few other locations/goodies have been part of my adventures since that moment in July.  No trace of stroke or tumor was found.  Phew!

I am doing everything I can possibly do to find out if it’s permanent, what caused it and what the solutions are to make me comfortable if it is permanent.

My life was pretty darn full when this happened.  Like most of you, I had enough on my plate. Then THIS!  There was every reason for me to make myself crazy, feel overloaded, worry and ask “Why me?”

I did those things for a little bit and then I decided to trust.

I trust that all will be well. I trust that I have the power and resourcefulness to get what I need to move through this by taking even greater care of the thoughts in my head and the love in my heart.

This is the perfect opportunity to perfect the work I do helping others to communicate through conflict.  THIS is a perfect example of conflict because conflict is something that takes us off our game.  How we communicate during times of conflict determines how much we move forward or stay stuck.

This is what I am doing to move forward and trust:

  • I am saying YES to what is in front of me.  I am not imagining outcomes that are not here because that would be looking for reasons to fear.
  • I am tuning down the input I generate and the input I receive from others.
  • I am grateful to wake up and be given the chance to live my life.  Today is perfect. Tomorrow is not here yet.

I have figured out that when I trust, I see and HEAR what I need to do to take my next step. When I do not trust, I become stressed and when I’m stressed and can’t see or HEAR what I need to see and HEAR to do what I need to do.

Quite frankly my friends, I am grateful to see, still hear out of one ear and to be able to walk and talk.  And heavens to Betsy, you know how much I LOVE to talk!

As I keep you posted on my progress, I promise to find more ways to uncover the power of YES with this event in my life to better help you navigate the conflict you encounter in yours.”
