For example – I’m starting the year off with a special, very restrictive diet to address some digestive issues that have been going on for a long time. I found myself resenting the restrictions, wishing I could eat other things. I was focusing on how boring the diet is, how I didn’t enjoy it. Fortunately, I realized that’s not helpful.
I decided to focus on being grateful that the source of the digestive problem has been found and is now being treated. I am grateful for the foods that I can eat, rather than focusing on what I can’t eat. I appreciate all those people who have created recipes for this particular dietary program that make it easier and more enjoyable.
Just having this shift in my attitude feels better and I know that if I can keep my attitude there it will help my body to heal faster.
Is there something you are resisting that would benefit from an attitude adjustment?
