You are here.
Anxiety says: but what about tomorrow?
What about 10 days from now? What is going to happen?
Will this be the same?
Will I still have this friend?
Will I still have this job?
Will I look the same?
Will I still be in the same struggles I’m in right now?
The fear of the unknown is crippling and it leaves us questioning, panicking, and sweating the small stuff.
You are not defined by where you are now or where you have been. You simply are where you are now. And that is more than okay. Your progress is something to celebrate and embrace. This moment is yours, it’s once in a lifetime, don’t spend it worrying about tomorrow. Let go. Let it all go.
You are here.
You don't need to finish that class, read that book, have the perfect plan. Just begin. You'll get somethings wrong, you'll make mistakes and have to try again. But the best learning comes from doing it - building your muscles and confidence, not following other people's advice.
Compassion drives kindness. Every day is a new chance to make a difference in the World. We need more of this in our world. Simple acts and more are good for others and your soul.
I thank everyone who helps others. Right now I am thankful for the kindness and helping from those in the mental health/counseling field. One of them being my husband who is a Youth and Family Therapist - always thinking of new ways and approaches to make a connection with his patients and spark hope and positive changes in their life.
From loneliness, sadness, trauma, abuse, addiction, depression, anxiety, etc. come voices of those who are scared and trying be healed. There are those who want to help, have compassion and are there to help guide back to healing and health without judgement. To assist in a healthier and happier life.
These helpers see a person who is valuable and worthy. Kindess is the core of their job.
Today women all over the internet joined #TheTruthRebellion. Follow the hashtag to see us share the words that no longer define who we are.
We've decided to erase the lies spoken over us and tell you who we REALLY are.
Today could have been viewed as a failure. But I chose not to go down that path.
There is a high point and a low point every day.
The low point today was discovering that three sequential and time sensitive emails were never pushed out despite them being scheduled....
I could have chosen anger...For a minute I panicked, but in the very next minute I sent out an explanation and an apology and the three emails. .
About that high point?
The high point was a super helpful meditation class (More on that later) and some great client conversations.
