Today would have been my sister’s 59th birthday.
Diagnosed with an in-operable brain tumour in 2007 and given two years to live she said ‘f**k that’ (I’m quoting – Sue didn’t mince her words) and she stayed with us until 2018 living a life that changed so many other people’s lives for the better.
The one phrase she always used is ‘your thoughts create your reality’.
In other words, if you think something won’t work, it probably won’t.
If you think something will work, it probably will – or even if it doesn’t, at least you won’t always be wondering ‘what if’.
She encouraged me to think about my thinking.
To challenge my own thoughts – are they true, or just some dumb story I’m making up in my head?
You know the ones I mean:
‘Who am I to……’
‘I can’t do that…. (what, me?!)
So if you’re doubting yourself today, channel a little bit of my beautiful sister Sue.
You’ll be glad you did.
Her light still shines bright.
With love as always.
