I suffer from days of depression, sadness, negative thoughts, self pity on occasion. I suffer from anxiety, you see there are still days that I can’t walk into a store that I usually have no issues walking in to. It is these days that I consider “rough days” that I remind myself, life is a work in progress. I may never be 100% fully recovered from the day I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder as a young mother of one, but I can fight back. I can attempt to remind myself of what there is to be happy, I can redirect my mind to think happy thoughts. I can overcome it day by day and I can fight the battle of anxiety without medication.
Some days I am a happy go lucky kinda gal, always smiling, but that isn’t the case every single day. I recently spent a couple of days sleeping, literally sleeping my life away because I just could care less to move out of my bed. I let the boys hang with their Dad and my daughter happened to have those days with her father. Sometimes when my daughter is away from me I get even more sad, because after almost 9 years of sharing her, I still miss her so incredibly much when she is away.
You see, writing is my therapy. Not only writing about my personal life, but writing positive words. The words I share with others to help them gain happiness and truly live with what others call the Law of Attraction rules, is something important to me. I was self taught the Law of Attraction, honestly I hadn’t even heard of the term until years after I had practiced creating a positive mindset, to redirect my brain to not let negative take me down for long. It’s so funny that I self taught this law, when it’s something many live by after reading self help books and watching movies like The Secret.
Writing positive words, advice and thoughts here on my blog help me make it through another day. The words stick with me as much as I want them to stick within your own mind. I love that I have an outlet, a place to share my struggles but also share my words of wisdom because this is just another tool I use to help stay on the positive track in life.
