How to Create A New Life In 2021. Top tips on how to move forward positively after a life challenging or life changing year. Even when your present life situations seem hopeless or too difficult.
So many people have found 2020 the most challenging years of their life. For many people it has been a year of great change on so many levels. A time when we have been part or witness to a dramatic increase in fear, social isolation, financial loss, grief and trauma without the usual connection and support.
Sadly that has left behind more than a residue of anxiety, stress, and trauma. Alongside a dramatic jump in addiction issues, domestic violence, and mental health disorders. But this does not need to be your life in 2021.
All Change Starts Within You
No matter what you have faced in 2020, how much your life has changed. How much fear or worry you have about 2021. You have far more power and possibilities to create change, create a new life than you can imagine.
What Being Housebound Over 6 Years Taught Me
As someone who has faced a long list of health challenges most of my life. Health challenges that impacted a large part of my life in so many different ways over the last 30 years. I know a lot about how to turn challenges into opportunities. Opportunities not just for change, but growth and deeper spiritual connection.
You see, I have spent most of the last 6 years housebound and a large part of my twenties mostly housebound. All due to a variety of medical challenges. I know more than a few things about turning extreme challenges into gifts and opportunities. As someone who survived life-threatening sepsis and so many medical conditions that mainstream medicine. could offer no treatment. I know how both fragile and precious life is.
But I also know how much hope there can be in situations that seem hopeless.
Miracles Do Happen Everyday
In my twenties I faced threatened eye loss in one eye. Suffering from an unexplained hole in the back of my eye, my eye became so hypotonic that the eye pressure was dangerously low. Now although modern medicine could offer me no treatment at the time, I actually managed to up the eye pressure of my eye through a variety of holistic approaches.
Over the last 6 years after a period of life-threatening sepsis I ended up with a long list of neurological symptoms which appeared to be related to mercury posioning and suspected late stage lyne disease. My symptoms looked like a mixture of Parkinsons, MS, MND. I had balance and fine motor skill issues, serious muscle spams, nerve damage and severe hyperacusis. Basically very painful noise sensitivity, in-fact so painful it would trigger a rare type of non-epileptic seizures and complex movement disorders. I was told by specialists nothing could be done and that I had to just accept this was my life. Thankfully I have always been proactive towards my health and wellbeing for over 30 years. I never gave up hope, never took what the medical profession said as gospel.
As a patient to hundreds of specialists over the years, a medical case study for medical students, professors and been written about in a research paper. I have gained the wisdom to know that there is more than what they eyes can see or what we have learned. That the medical profession just like the rest of us can have a very limited perception. They don’t know what they don’t know. They don’t always see the truth or the bigger picture. And that small miracles and large miracles happen every day.
No matter what difficulties you have faced this year, no matter how challenging your life maybe at the moment. There is always hope and opportunities for a new life. Even after tremendous financial loss, after disability, after loss of a loved one. I see many people more than ever heal from addiction and trauma that they have lived with 30, 50 years.
There is always new opportunities to create a new life. Even if that life maybe different from what you perceived or planned before.
