In being BRAVE sometimes simply showing up each day is BRAVE ready to face the day ahead. When my anxiety was at its worst, showing up each day was my BRAVE, just facing people was ver difficult and required me to put every ounce of BRAVE I had on and face the day, somedays were harder than others and somedays I failed and tried again the next day.
What I did do every day was learn, I learnt how to do it better the next day, or how to stay 5-10min longer than I had the day before. I learnt how to calm myself and work through things better and I learnt that I couldn’t do it alone as much as I thought I could! I learnt that to succeed in this I needed to be vulnerable and I needed support.
I needed to be able to talk about things so I could process what was going on. In talking about what was going on for me, it soon started to make sense and I could truely get it. In talking about things I worked out that a lot of what was causing my anxiety was stories I had made up or things I hadn’t truely understood, triggers and things that were unresolved.
I still have hard days, I however have support and ways to help me work through those days. Sometimes it work great and other times it just doesn’t work and that’s ok! I am much kinder to myself, I know tomorrow will be better and just remember...it is what it is!
EVERYDAY I try to find JOY in something even in the little things that we often take for granted, the sunrise, the stars, the trees, the birds, the beautiful things this planet surround us with. I take it in and this helps start my day grounded and helps keeps me out of my head more.
Find ways that work for you to face each day, be BRAVE and find JOY in the little things. Life is a GIFT and a place to LEARN who we truely are!
