In the midst of my own serious illness years ago, I had friends who were more than willing to share with me the many ways I might die from my illness. They seemed to have missed the fact that I had the same information.
But they also missed the fact that I refused to play through every potential scenario. Not because I was in denial, but because it did not benefit me to focus on it.
In reflection, I used three specific phrases to stay focused on my life (and not my potential demise).
And in fact, these same thoughts and reflections are strong sources of me thriving to this day.
Let me tell you about the thoughts I held and continue to hold when dealing with life circumstances.
