EVERYTHING happens for a Reason!

I know that this is true in my life. When I look back at all the events that have happened to me, I see the bigger picture. For example, when I was diagnosed with MS, that was the same day that my partner left the corporate world after 23 years. The very last day. And that night... BAM... I woke up with my whole right side with pins and needles. There is no coincidence that it happened then. We both had the time and energy to go to all those doctors within the next few weeks and time to absorb this news. There is no coincidence that I got trained to be a Life Coach prior to my diagnosis -- there were lessons I had learned through the training that helped me to deal with the diagnosis better.

It is no coincidence that I had a gut to move to the West Coast after being on the East Coast my whole life. I am here, in Oregon, for a reason. I feel more at peace. I feel at home. I feel more energized than I have ever felt before. My creative ideas flow to me effortlessly here. I am exactly where I am supposed to be.

There is no coincidence that I am now America's #1 Motivational Speaker for people with MS and soon to be America's #1 Motivational Speaker for Doctors! If I never was diagnosed with MS, would I be doing what I am doing now, helping others the way I am doing. No, I don't think so. MS was not even on my radar screen before I was diagnosed. I didn't know anything about it. I just thought "MS" and "disability" -- quite the contrary for me now. I think "MS" and "My Strengths"; I think "MS" and "more ability" ... ability to live life even more to its fullest -- than I ever have done before.

Everything DOES happen for a reason! Sometimes we just don't know what the reason is and that's OK. I trust that "All is Well" even when it doesn't feel that way. I know that from every crisis, there is a lesson and opportunity. And I know that "Life is Good" and I intend to choose to be Lovin' Life, even in those times of adversity. I will reach for the "feel good" feeling by turning my focus from what's NOT working to what "IS WORKING"!

Thank you "universe" for all the abundance you send me and for all that is yet to come!
