What Would Erin Say? Blog #8

TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME AND ENJOY EVERY MOMENT
“I appreciate every moment and am very conscious of not doing anything or saying anything that would make me want to take that moment back. The only thing that consistently gets me out of depression and makes me appreciate what I have is to live for today only and give up trying to change the things I don’t have control over! Works every time! Life is very short, too short to let a single moment pass that is not meaningful.”

Taking one moment and one day at a time is difficult for most of us. We tend to focus on the past or worry about the future – or at least reach for it – when in fact the real power and enjoyment we have is in the present moment. In the blink of an eye we can miss what is so important. The age old worry chart, that demonstrates how futile worry is, makes us realize we can do very little about the past and future – so focus on today and use each moment wisely. How do you feel about these ideas??

“Don’t let doctors tell you – nothing is wrong”

“If your body is telling you something is not right, ask for tests, look into it and don’t be brushed off.  Don’t let doctors tell you nothing is wrong.  Be aggressive with them – take control.  When things bothered me 3 to 4 years ago it could have made a diffference to my outcome if they had been dealt with then.”

“Take control of your treatment, your situation, and your doctors.  Ask questions, know how you feel and don’t ignore these feelings.  If something doesn’t feel right, ask, cancel or change your path.  If you feel like you’ve been keep waiting long enough raise a fuss, never stay silent.”

Erin became a true advocate for others that are reluctant to stand up to the medical system and ‘voice’ the inner rumblings of change within the body and mind.  In many  cases it is difficult for doctors in a 10 minute exam to be fully aware of all symptoms unless you tell them.  We may tell them about what we feel that particular day but forget to tell them about other changes that began weeks or months ago.  Only you and your inner voice are aware of the subtle and persistent sensations that have been occurring.  Make note of eash issue as you sense and know what part of the body is being affected and how often.  When you go to the doctor take the whole picture  – it will help them and you.  You have a ‘voice’ use it!

‘Get to Know Yourself – don’t wait’

This topic is a follow up from the previous blog about ‘listening to your body.’  The key here is, when you pay attention and listen you have a ‘choice’ to make a ‘decision’ that will  make a difference.  If you wait too long the body continues to incorporate more drastic measures to catch your attention and sometimes it’s too late.

We are here to learn and grow as we move toward love, wholeness, harmony and eventually enlightenment.  At a spiritual level we may know our purpose but often thats not immediately revealed to our earthly body.  We’d love to awaken to this growth and be part of it.  Body messages help keep us on track and give us a nudge when we are headed in the wrong direction.  Part of our earthly journey is to make that connection, understand the messages and learn what we are here for.
