I am reading Big Little Lies, and yes I know I’m late to jump on the bandwagon, but oh my word, I’m glad I finally jumped on! I saw part of the series during my maternity leave, but I didn’t get to finish it. I’m glad I waited to finish the series so I could read the book, but not knowing makes the book that much more delicious!
I have been reading every spare moment I have had today, and I have found myself rushing through chores to get back to reading! I’m about to go back!
No spoilers allowed yet: but have any of you read it?!
Since my overall theme of the day has been “positivity” I wanted to share my ray of light with you. My husband is someone with whom I can always lean on in times of anxiety. He suffers from an anxiety disorder as well (I feel sorry for our future child lol) and he is able to relate to what I am going through. I feel incredibly blessed to have a man who will hold me when I feel anxious, push me outside of my comfort zone and pray with me when I feel weak. God knew what he was doing when he brought us together !
I have notice that during the times when I am most stressed, I have neglected to spend time with myself. What I mean to say is, I am spending all of my energy on everyone else except myself. I, like many of you, don’t have much time to spare during the course of my day, but I have been trying to squeeze a few minutes in for myself at the end of each day this week. I have been doing yoga in the evenings, and get to bed a little earlier so I can loose myself in a good book.
Over the next few weeks I am going to continue to focus on putting more energy into myself so I am not so spent by the time I am needed to focus my energies on others.
For those of you who struggle with this same dilemma, how to you schedule time for yourself?
Yes, Mondays can be brutal, but they don’t have to be! Make today fantastic! Love those around you. Make a new friend. Take a mini adventure. Do Whatever you need to do to shake things up and enhance the day of those around you!
Have a marvelous Monday!
Have a fantastic day! So something kind for someone else today! Be the light that we need in this world of darkness!
Love you all!
I made it through my meeting without panic or incident! It ended up being very laid back and comfortable! I talked a lot and was very involved. I am getting more and more excited about this coming year!
It was such a wonderful victory to be able to see how far I have come with coping with my anxiety over the last four years. It was wonderful that I made it through without a single flicker of anxiety!
Today I woke up with my good friend anxiety. I am not sure why I have it today, but nevertheless I am going to push onward and choose happiness today. Will it be more difficult than usual? Yes. But that does not mean that I am going to give up!
To all of you who are like me today and have unexplained, or explained anxiety: remember you control your thoughts and you can win the battle!
Hold on to laughter
Fill your heart up to the brim
It will overflow
