George’s thoughts rivaled the electrical speed of a bullet train from Paris to London. His actions were swift, deliberate and on target. Quite frankly, George was unstoppable. Until, this happened.

A series of three concussions slowed George down. An activity that once took him 30 minutes to complete now takes him three hours. All he could think was, what the heck? What’s going on? How do I get back into that awesome way of living and being.

I met George on Sunday night.  He continued the story with, yeah, I’m a perfectionist, too.

He asked me, how do you deal with this sudden, abrupt change?

I looked him straight in the eye and said. Acceptance. We may not like our current circumstances. We may desperately want them to change. It is not who we know we can be. The first step is to accept where we currently are. Acknowledge that this is the best we can do right now. We can’t pretend to be someone else. Accepting reality is step one.

He leaned and listened more.

The next step is to give yourself, grace. This gives you permission that you know you can do better even though it’s not the best of who you are.

From this place, we can then take the best course of action to correct what’s going on. From here we can start looking at multiple solutions and identifying the next best course of action.

Acceptance and grace are the steps to move your forward when life hits you hard.

Wishing you an abundant and prosperous day!
