When I started this blog on January 1, 2014, I had a mission to end the year in a much greater state of mind than when I started it. October through December of 2013 were very rough for me. I was riddled with anxiety and was starting to withdraw from daily life. I knew my family couldn’t take much more of it and neither could I. I started on a journey to discover peace and serenity. By the end of the year I had found it.
I haven’t had a real anxiety attack in month. Sure, there’s the occasional little bit of nervousness that I’d like to think is normal but the bad anxiety that I used to have is gone. So for a blog that is about overcoming anxiety, there aren’t a lot of stories to tell. That is not to say that the anxiety couldn’t come back. It most certainly will. I have set up a lot of things in my life to prevent it from coming back.
I think this is the best direction for me to take in this blog right now. I’ve started practicing meditation, carrying crystals in my pockets, using sage to get rid of negative energy and just trying to stay present. I’d like to share some of this with all of you as well as tell stories about me and some of the struggles and bumps along the way.
I may have knocked out the giants in my life. They was in a coma but they’re not dead. My mission is to stop them from coming back. This is something I want to share with all of you.
I will, however, direct my attention off of the anxiety. I feel as if the saying “what you resist persists” is true. If you focus on something, even not wanting it, it’ll keep showing up. So my focus will mostly be on positive outcomes.
