I know I’ve been quiet on social media lately. Sometimes I just need to take a break and re-focus. I’ve realized lately that my focus in basically all aspects of my life has been so off. Like WAY off. I’ve made several U-turns this past week and, not gonna lie, some of these realizations have left me with a pit in my stomach which has spiked my anxiety to an all time high. I know it’s only temporary, as scary and panicky as it may seem in that moment. It’s so easy to let your brain take off and run away with what if’s, and how’s, and why’s, and HOLY CRAP!
Let me tell you, I know. As someone who suffers from debilitating anxiety, I can tell you this feeling won’t last forever (and maybe I’m also saying this to myself). Stop. Close your eyes. Use your 5 senses to ground yourself. AND BREATHE. We are not our thoughts, as stormy as they may seem. It takes effort to steady yourself but stay in it, and let the calm overtake you. When you open your eyes, realize that you have just taken your power back. You can do anything. And you are ok.
I meant to post about Grow It Girl but this just kinda came out, haha! It’s definitely not my usual kind of post. Maybe I’ll save my Grow It Girl post for another day until then. Happy Friday friends! I love you all so much!
