When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves. -Viktor E. Frankl
Lately I’ve made a lot of changes. They say when a woman is making changes in her life that is when she changes up her hair. I guess I would say that is true because I got my hair changed. I got my hair colored and for the first time since I was a child I got bangs. I’ll be honest I don’t know how I feel about the bangs but I’m going to work them regardless if I’m not a fan or not.
I’m seeing changes gradually in my life. I’m getting closer to where I want to be. However today I was reminded however there are some things you can’t change. Today I was put into a scary situation because of medical conditions I’ve had since I was a kid. I was stuck in a parking lot unable to move or do anything because of the pain. Luckily I did not pass out like I have done in the past, but I was still scared I was going to and the most scary part about it I didn’t have anyone to call that I knew would help.
I am doing so much better now, but I was really in a crisis earlier. All because of a medical condition. For all of you maybe wondering, yes I have been to doctors about it and it’s usually not that big of a deal if I get it taken care of in time, but today wasn’t one of those days and it hit me hard.
Tonight I was thinking what to write about and it jumped out at me that I talk about things you can change all the time but I don’t talk about things you can’t. We all deal with things we cannot change like I shared with my example. We also can’t change our genes or if we got a horrible haircut haha. But what we can do is just to learn to accept them for what they are and don’t let them stop you from living your life.
If you have read the “Diary of Anne Frank” you will also have a great example of this. Anne was put into a situation she could not change. Her and her family had to hide away during the horrifying Holocaust. Can you even imagine that time? Not just Anne Frank and her family but for all the Jews and people effected by it. Anne Frank was growing up in a time that was devastating yet while she could have just felt sorry for herself the whole time she choose to be productive and write in a diary. And little did she know that this precious diary she wrote in would go down in history and be cherished by millions.
If you out there reading this are going through events in your life you cannot change just make the most of what you can. Maybe you’re under 18 and your home situation isn’t the best. I remember being in your shoes but just plan for the better and know leaving will come quicker than you know it. I want to tell you all you are so strong and whatever it is you face that you cannot change you will get through! You are amazing and just know those things are going to make your success story even stronger! Love you all!
