A healing environment and kindness are very important to me. I knew my doctor was an old grouch with a reputation for an explosive temper. He's harsh; I'm sensitive but we got through it OK.
The big lesson is that I focus on what may be wrong more than I like, sort of scanning for problems like a computer anti-virus program on high alert.. There was plenty to focus on, lots of little hiccups, like those pesky broken blood vessels. Easiest to obsess about, a very slow recovery to normal vision, just approaching today on day 4.
My coaching clients and I work on this together all the time. It comes up for the most successful people I know. In my work I never want to "think positive" or "think negative." The goal is always clear vision. This seems a perfect opportunity to improve my own view. If something is off, I want to know, but not to the exclusion of the wonder all around me!
If you too, sometimes get caught up in the what-is-wrong-web, maybe this is a good time for you too, to widen your focus and include the wonder of it all.
Today I am going to consciously include in my focus:
- The miracle of fast eye surgery
- The extraordinary miracle of sight
- The kind wishes of friends and my dear son
- The thoughtful support of my neighbor
- The miracle of color
- My comfy home to return to
- The gradual clearing of my vision
- The vast numbers of people who can see because of surgery like this
- The warm feeling of gratitude for my life and the coming holiday
- Love and thanks to you for sharing my journey!
