Waking up this morning, I couldn’t help but smile and think about how amazing my life is. As many of you know, I married my best friend back in October, published and became a best-selling author back in January of this year and I am working on releasing an online course that will help women who are grieving the loss of a loved one. My physical and mental health has improved greatly this year due to yoga sessions, meditation and accepting God into my life.
My life wasn’t always this amazing. Growing up in China, my life was filled with poverty and childhood abuse. For much of my life, I struggled with low self-esteem and suffered a huge blow in my life when I lost my late husband Bob to cancer in 2017. Bob had been my source of care, happiness, love, and confidence and I came to realize that I needed to find these qualities within myself in order to heal my broken heart.
Losing Bob sent me on soul searching journey where eventually I would be exposed to a principle from the Jack Canfield book The Success Principles that would change my life forever. That principle was to “take 100% responsibility for your life.” The basic idea is that the only person who controls the quality of your life is you.
It was a simple enough concept but it was hard for me to embrace it at first because I had blamed others and things outside of myself for the parts of my life that I didn’t like. What I came to learn was that even though I had no power to change any of these things outside of myself, I DID have control on how I responded to these outside events and that my response was the key to getting the life I desired.
Three and a half years later, I am still taking 100% responsibility for my life and am loving every minute of it.
