So I got to thinking about that. And here’s what I realized.
While I have at least progressed to the place in my life where, when someone asks me how I am, I don’t actually TELL them about how my back hurts or I’m getting a cold or my bunions are bothering me, I surely do spend a lot of time THINKING about how crummy I’m feeling. And we KNOW it’s a fact, we can actually CREATE problems by focusing on the wrong things.
Doubt me? Watch someone who says over and over again, “I’m such a klutz, I’m such a klutz, I’m a MAJOR klutz.” And just see how many times they will trip over a non-existent bump on the floor.
What, you say? Maybe they ARE a klutz? Ahhhhhh. One trip does not a klutz make, but if you focus long enough on that one trip, beat yourself up about it and DECIDE that you are klutzy because of it, then the old “self-fulfilling prophecy” laws set in to work.
So here’s the deal. The next time you are feeling poorly, try telling yourself and others that you are “Under Repair.” And, since the body is a self-healing organism, your statement will be accurate!
