Embracing the Unchangeable

With the new Covid-19 variant now in circulation, widespread flooding in the Pacific Northwest and out East, and the resulting supply shortages in many areas affecting food prices, many people feel overwhelmed.  I find that I do best in these situations when I embrace that which is unchangeable, while focusing on changing the things that I can.

I think that circumstances are more about how we look at them and respond, than about the situations themselves, and our reaction to the weather around us exemplifies this. 

Viktor Frankl was an Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor who said that there is a ‘space’ between a stimulus (or an event) and our response, and in that space we have the power to choose our response. This includes our reaction to a new strain of Covid, environmental events such as the weather, and the condition of our own health.

”Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response.” ~Viktor Frankl

When I woke up to the snow this morning, I decided to embrace the unchangeable, and this  short video touches on that.

We have the power to choose how we are going to respond in any situation, and this includes everything from the weather, to our own health.  We can choose to change the things that we can, while embracing the unchangeable.

When I set out to restore my health four years ago, that’s exactly what I did.  Maintaining it simply takes making those same choices, daily.  It really does come down to recognizing that there is a space between the circumstances and our response, where we have the power to choose.

To your good health!
