I am fond of the phrase "Put on your big girl panties and SPARKLE". I just love the phrase, love the idea behind it. That sometimes we have to do things, and it might not be the way we wanted, but we can bring our sparkle to it anyway.
I found myself in that place today. I am shopping for health insurance, and of course, my awesome Endocrinologist only takes these plans that I can't afford.
Rather than be upset. I find myself putting on my big girl panties, picking the one that is best for me in my price range, get to work in that coaching so I can afford the one I want. It is an attitude. Knowing I can change the variables in that equation, namely what I can and can't afford in the future.
I have had this overall mindset change. I tend to take a longer view to everything. Very few things in my life are set in stone. Even those few things are set in stone because I want them to be. This is what being in control of my life feels like.
I am wearing my big girl panties, and i am sparkling! I am genuinely pleased to have resolved the insurance issue. No, I don't have the original specialist I wanted, but I do still have my primary care Dr who will keep me in good health until I get a new specialist and that is MORE than I started with! #AttitudeOfGratitude
