Great Ra’sing Readers! May we abundant our day for ourselves and our family. May our work and intentions be our prayer for good for ourselves and our family. We express deep heartfelt gratitude for life. It’s another day to be here, to smile, laugh, and do whatever our heart desires. So mote it be!
I hope everyone had a great day yesterday! If you didn’t don’t say you had a bad day. Instead say you had a “character building” day. Those tough days are challenges to help you build your character. You’ll know what to do effectively when you’re faced with the challenge again. Change the narrative of how you look at life. Remember anything you speak of will be willed into the Universe. Be very mindful of the things you say.
A few days ago while driving I was telling myself I need to get a new hearing aid. The one I currently have was working my last nerves going in and out. I said I needed to stop being so cute and concerned with people’s thought of my hearing challenge. It was the only reason why I got the hearing aid three years ago. Now fast forward three years, it’s not the hearing aid for me.
Anyhow I told myself I needed to make an appointment with my audiologist. Good thing when I came home, I had a missed called from them. I returned the call and was reminded I had an appointment the next day which I completely forgot about. I’m like why is this not in my planner. Umm that’s interesting, but I’m glad they reminded me.
So the next day which was yesterday, I was so excited to go to my appointment. I was literally being a big kid at heart. I have a very good and supportive rapport with my audiologist I’ve known for over 10 years. We’re discussing my options such as a cochlear implant, new hearing aid, and a new mold. I wanted a new hearing aid, but she suggested to go with the new mold which will add more power to my hearing aid. So I’m like okay, let’s try this.
She gets this pink and white clay mixture. While she’s mixing it, it brought so many childhood memories of how I loved to play with the mixture. She gave me some in my hands to play with. It was so relaxing. I told her I’m being a big kid right now. She laughed as she put the mixture in my ear to get a definite shape of my canal. The mixture stays there for about 5-10 minutes until it’s a steady hold before being taken out. The mold will be sent to the manufacturer and I come back in two weeks to pick it up. I’m truly excited!
As my audiologist and I were talking, I inquired about speech therapy. She wasn’t sure if it would be covered by my insurance, but wanted to know why I asked. Although I don’t need speech therapy, I told her I missed it from when I used to take it during my childhood. From that moment on I knew this appointment wasn’t about me, it was about my inner child. So I let my inner child lead the way. Speech therapy is covered under my insurance and I have my first session in two weeks. Now I’m extra excited and really being in tune with my inner child.
I share all this to say that you need to trust your inner child. If you find yourself reminiscing about your childhood and acting on it, chances are it’s your inner child leading you. You may find yourself playing with children, toys, coloring, at the park swinging or going down the slide, etc. Take time to nourish and spend time with your inner child. It makes life better. Dance and play those little kid music. I listen to them all the time in my car even when my kids are not in my car. Sometimes we just need to take a break from adulting.
Challenge yourself to spend time with your inner child. Step outside of the norm and embrace yourself my friends! Have a great day!
