I Can't Wait to Walk Again

She had been in and out of the hospital. Had multiple surgeries trying to save her leg. And then they couldn’t. It was amputated. Soon she will be fitted with a prosthesis.
Her response: I can’t wait to stand up and walk again!
Wow! Doris’ reaction got me thinking – as always!
We build foundations of thinking that we stand on. Most of them built from trauma or hurtful experiences. Mindsets and behaviors that we adopt thinking they protect us; believing they are part of our identity. We feed them, keep them and maneuver through life using them as a guide.
If we have an awareness that these foundations are actually hurting us and need some healing, we try adaptations and fight against letting them go. We hold fast to them as if they give us life and hesitate to take the risk to have them amputated.
And we miss the opportunity to walk again.
To be the person I was created to be; to walk in fullness and the power of me, requires I step out of the old messages and walk boldly into the freedom of discovering who I am!
