The past month has been quite the bittersweet start to 2018. I spent the first three weeks watching myself sink into a place of anxiety and hopelessness....one that I have already come to know all too well in the past. I was honestly worried. I thought this would define the rest of the year for me. However, that luckily has not been the case.
This week began just like all the others - with the prospect of a fresh start. I went to church on Sunday then on to work and school on Monday, and continued my regular routine until Tuesday night when I came home and hopped on to Emily Wilson's Instagram live. Without going into too much detail, I will say that she inspired me to lean on to the path of self-discovery, one where I do not merely ride the waves, but rather create them for myself.
This event honestly molded the rest of the week for me. My anxiety has been decreasing and I feel renewed. I have been able to better look at all of the positives in my life (and boy are there many). All in all, I am happy.
That is the word that describes me right now: Happy. And content.
Self-love is so important and although I might just be putting it into practice now, I cannot wait to carry it with me for the rest of my life. And I highly encourage that you do too.
