One disciplines their disappointments, as Jim Rohn would say, by embracing the truth causing the disappointment.
You can’t change the past. All you can say is this is where I am, and this is where I want to go. Now, you’re in the world of possibility. Disappointments live a parallel world that’s out of reach. It’s like losing the keys to your house but being able to peek through your window. It’s frustrating our inability to change what just happened – it JUST happened.
But you have the steps you take next or refusing to take any steps. The only healthy option is to chose to move. And then deciding to move in the right direction. The right direction is the one towards health. Do what you know you can do to be healthy. It’s the only logical next step.
The truth is all you have. It’s the only story that serves you.
