You Can’t Control What Happens to you, BUT You Can Control How You Deal With It Share this...FacebookTwitterLinkedin Guys, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA. 🙈You know my life is crazy up and crazy down all.the.time. The truth is, a few months ago I had a website makeover, and then shit hit the fan. We had another health scare with Jordan and I went haywire A.K.A crisis mode… had to shift, pivot, re-focus, whatever you want to call it. But the truth is that’s life right? I’ve learned through this journey there are sooooooo many things we can’t control, but how we react to them is what we can control. And I’m still learning how best to handle these cards my family’s been dealt. Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what’s important, priorities, and all this stuff we so often don’t focus on maybe because we don’t have time, or maybe because it’s too painful. But it’s time. Time to focus on that stuff we want to push away so often. The hurt, the pain, the deep-rooted anguish from our childhood, or maybe the deep pain in our heart right now. Jordan’s been reading a special book called The Healing Code and has been raving about it. He’s listening to it on audible, and he seems so content after listening to it. The book talks about dealing with your past, because painful matters of the heart from your childhood causes stress in your body which can lead to disease as an adult, repeating past mistakes and so much more. I’m really excited to start it, and I’d love to read it along with you! Comment here if you have read it, or if you want to so we can start a discussion! Let’s let it go 🎶🎶🎶 Right now I want you to stop worrying about your messy house and the beds that aren’t made. Give your hubby or partner a big hug. Smile more, cry more, spend more time with your family, watch a funny movie, and most importantly don’t sweat the small stuff. Much love to you and yours, Rachael Rachael Braunshweiger The voice behind Guts & Gloss, Rachael is on a mission to share everything she’s learned about having guts, taking risks, turning obstacles into opportunity — and living with style (of course)!
