That feeling like you are continuously treading water, moving from one thing, to the next thing, to the next.
It is something we all get stuck in, and if we’re not careful or mindful of our situation, it can cause damage to all other areas of our life – relationships, health, time.
My guest today, Zoe Davis, found herself in one of those ruts, one that had been going on for many years, until her body finally said, enough is enough, and she was bed ridden for two weeks.
Zoe wasn’t able to do anything, but reflect on the situation she was in. Zoe hit a point in her life where she realised she needed to make some changes.
And this is a key point of this episode - Zoe had been stuck in her rut so deeply, that she had neglected her health, neglected herself.
Why do we wait so long to make changes in our lives?
Zoe had a massive lump on her right hand, but she kept putting the x-ray off until the pain was too much for her to handle.
That lump, ended up being a Giant Cell Tumour. The doctors had to blast it off and then cut bone from her hip and place it in her hand.
One of the things I love about listening to other people’s stories is that we can learn from them. One of the key things I learnt from Zoe is that we all wait too long to make changes in our lives.
Sometimes we wait until it is too late. We would rather be doing something that is harmful to our health, that is destructive to our lives, than to change - because change means doing things differently.
And that is a huge hurdle we all need to get over.
In this episode we discuss brining mindful of your health, setting goals that aren’t about achievement but purely for enjoyment and happiness, and not ignoring that nagging feeling.
I had the privilege of speaking to Zoe a week after she returned home from the hospital, and I absolutely love her attitude and this beautiful optimistic outlook that she now carries through every aspect of her life.
I hope you enjoy x
