Hi there, everyone! You haven’t heard from me for a little bit since my last post — and I did that on purpose. It took a lot for me to write a post like that, and I kind of wanted it to sit there and sink in. The response I received from so many of you touched me on every level and I can’t thank you enough for taking the team to read that whole post. I know it wasn’t exactly a short or easy one to read.
So how have I been feeling after writing that post? Much better. I feel so much better after getting all of that crazy anxiety out of my system by writing it down and letting it out into the world. I could re-read my words as much as I wanted and cram them into
my head to understand where I have been and where I am now.
My relationship with God is repairing. I am doing some good leg work and I am excited for the future again. Things don’t magically change over night, but I am trying to hang onto my beliefs by reading encouraging words throughout the day. Sorry the below image is so small — not too sure what happened when I tried to format this!
I am also keeping a journal again — even if the entries are short. Another change? Instead of reading through my Twitter feed to fall asleep, I am now just being quiet, laying there, and naturally letting my body get the rest it needs. I was wired all the time — during the day at work, after work, and well into the night. I am still reading blogs and celebrity BS on my iPad before bed, but I’ve also carved in some time to read positive affirmations as well as a plain old book. I really enjoying reading a little bit each day.
These aren’t ground breaking changes, but they are the changes I needed to make for myself. I don’t feel as chaotic, confused, or sad, and it’s all because of teeny tiny tweaks I have made to each day. I also wake up hoping and asking to be open to everything.
This blog isn’t going to turn into me preaching about why believing and having faith in God is important. I have never been that type of person, and quite honestly, I am not a fan of ‘preachy’ (I’ve always found it annoying) people. But I wanted to share that this is the way I have found that I am feeling better and happier with myself.
I encourage you all to find small ways to make your day more fluid and filled with positive energy. We all go through slumps and bad days, but by having little tools to better ourselves, we can see the bright light and hopefully get over them.
That’s all for now, have a great day :)
