Today I got a promotion! Well, technically speaking I gave myself a promotion, but whichever way you look at it, it’s the best promotion I’ve ever had and that’s what really counts.
Over the past two decades of chronic illness, I have tried many different (and sometimes crazy) treatments in a desperate bid to improve my health – some helped a little, some didn’t, most made me much worse. And I now realise that for the majority of the time I have completely ignored my intuition and often kept going with a treatment that wasn’t working for me because the practitioner insisted that I had to continue to see results.
But, not anymore. When it comes to my health and my body, I am now the boss and I make the decisions. And that means that if and when I look for help from medical or holistic practitioners, I am not making enquiries to find out if they are “willing to treat me”, as someone I recently contacted kindly told me. No! I am interviewing them to see if I am willing to be treated by them.
So, when I contacted a holistic dentist this afternoon, that’s exactly what I did. (The last time I went to the dentist I had a horrible experience and I’m not about to let that happen again.) In the past, I’d have felt shy about asking so many questions and taking up the receptionist’s time. And I’d also have felt bad about being forthright and wanting to know all the details about a treatment. But not today. Not now that I’m CEO of my body.
Today I felt confident to ask all the questions I needed to ask and to talk in detail about what exactly my requirements are. And you know what? It went really well and my intuition was in agreement. So, together we will be scheduling an appointment in a few weeks time.
Day 355, Reason 355: Today I am feeling happy, inspired and empowered by my promotion to CEO of my own body and wellness. 🙂
Next step is to find the perfect naturopath for me who can give consultations vis SKYPE – just putting it out to the Universe to see what comes back! If you can recommend anybody, please do let me know.
