Taking Charge: Making Change

If you’ve read my previous blog, “Anxiety: The Creeper”, you’ll want to read this one as well. Anxiety is a constant struggle, for me anyways. The saying, “The good, the bad, and the ugly”, fits all too well.

The good: Every day is challenging, but I take that in as a chance to learn. To learn what triggers my anxiety, and how to manage it. Even weed it out. If it stresses you out to the point that it triggers that horrible Creeper, LET IT GO.

The bad: Feeling overwhelmed, and feeling like there is no help, is me at my worst. I keep moving along, every single day to “brush” through it. Feeling helpless is one of my weaknesses. In my mind, I should not feel this way, but that ugly “creeper” tells me otherwise. No I don’t hear “voices”. More like racing thoughts. At times the thoughts just race until they have taken over. I feel defeated. I’m a stay at home mom, with the same routine most days. I don’t help my husband bring money in to provide for our family. So, yes helpless is a very big weakness.

The ugly: Feeling defeated or like you’ve lost a battle against yourself is ugly. Feelint worthless because you don’t or can’t do certain things, is ugly. Feeling judged because of the way you feel, is ugly. Feeling like you’re stuck with nowhere to go or turn, is ugly. Anxiety: The Creeper is ugly.

While these are all facts that I just shared with you, and you may relate to some or all, there is something I’d like to add for myself, and for you.

The better: Focus on the good. Focus on you, so that you can be the best at whatever it is that you are doing or wish to do. Turn your weaknesses into strengths. Let go of the negative. Say hello to positive. Don’t ever let anxiety win you over, don’t feel defeated. Be a warrior, every single day. Make someone smile or laugh, in return you will feel the same joy and happiness. Most importantly, don’t ever give a damn what anyone thinks. Remember, if they are “judging”, they are the ugly.

Now, onto better tomorrows with plans of joy, creativity, and of course, love.
