What Defines You?

What Defines You?

While going to the Physiotherapist (some same Physioterrorist) isn't fun, the outcomes have been good. But a recent encounter with another client got me thinking.

The Physio has me doing hydrotherapy for my healing ankle. Usually there are two to five of us in the pool at once. As I was doing my weird stretches I said to one of the guys I had met before, "How are you doing?"

Now I was making polite conversation. I should have thought about the question I asked because he then took quite some time to tell me how he was doing.

Yes, he is in an unpleasant situation and he has multiple injuries. Yes it has had an impact on his life and that of his family. But there has to be a good side somewhere doesn't there?

Thinking about that interaction, I made the choice to not be defined by my injury.

The impact of my broken ankle is ever present in my life but I talk about it too much, give it credit too much, allow it to impact too much. The time has come for me to move on.

Sure, there will be a lasting impact but that is for me to manage. I don't need to keep going on about it.

I know there is a significant shift in mentality when I focus on what I CAN do rather than on what I CAN'T do.

Do you know people who are defined by what they think is holding them back?
By whatever event has occurred to them in their past that they can't move past?
Are you one of those people Dear-Reader?

Maybe it is time to focus on all the amazing things you can do, the experiences you can have, the relationships you can be part of.

Don't be defined by events, thoughts and actions that are best left relegated to the past.

What defines you?
