I am sick and I AM grateful.

With thanks to Louise Hay…
COLDS: Too much going on at once. Mental confusion and disorder.
AFFIRMATION: I allow my mind to relax and be at peace. Clarity and harmony are within me and all around me.

I am sick with a cold, and I AM grateful.

I AM grateful that being sick forces me to slow down and take time for myself…fulfilling one of my intentions this year for exquisite self-care. Since I haven’t chosen to do this voluntarily, my body is choosing for me.

I AM grateful that feeling sick creates a laser focus on the beliefs that are no longer serving me, and pinpointing all the areas in my life in which I overwork and under-appreciate.

I AM aware that I have a belief that I do not have the time to run a successful business and be a loving and present parent. (Ow!) I have become aware of a belief that I need to take on less-than-perfect clients at discount rates just to survive. (Double ow!) I see that I have bought into the belief that somehow being sick absolves me of responsibility – it’s something everyone experiences and so they’ll understand it. Right?! Uh oh…

I see that all of my limited thoughts have created this little healing crisis as these beliefs come up to be healed…and that when I share myself authentically with my perfect clients we are all enriched. I AM aware that this is an opportunity to re-assess my beliefs around ease and peace in my business, and to KNOW at a deep level that I AM sustained, nourished and protected in every way.

I AM grateful to have the opportunity to BE present to my children and witness their growth and maturity. I AM grateful to invest my energies into parenting and loving my children.

I AM grateful that being sick reminds me that 99% of the time I enJOY wonderful good health; I AM, in fact, nearly always well. I AM happy to be creating a body that is full of vitality, vigor, and the sparkle of enthusiasm for life.

As my body transitions back to health and wholeness, I would love your thoughts on how you have recovered quickly from illness and gifts you may have encountered in the journey.

  1. Hi Carolyn,
    I was adding your site to my blog roll, and found this post. Wow, I just wrote a similiar one! I hope you get well SOON, and know you will with your gratitude attitude. It’s really powerful, isn’t it. And, thank you for your comment on my abundance post. I thanked you in my comments, but realize today that you might not have seen it, so thank you again! It’s taken me a while to figure out all this blogging stuff.
    Bless, joette
