Let’s get personal: I’ve talked a lot about mindfulness and meditation here and how much it’s helped. (Not many know that I’ve struggled with depression, anxiety and was diagnosed with CPTSD) I spent a lot of my life being disappointed in myself for not being “where I’m supposed to be” and because of that mindset, I made some horrible decisions. I stayed in toxic relationships for too long, declined opportunities and spent too much time punishing myself for my short comings. When I was 27, I decided to look inward instead of out. I learned the difference between expectations that have been programmed in my mind vs. expectations I truly have for myself. I stopped judging my success by what I haven’t done but instead I looked at the things I have. I still set goals and I reward myself for achieving them but as for “where I’m supposed to be” ... that became a broader picture. I wanted to be happy, content in my own skin and proud to be who I was in the moment with no deadline; I am constantly growing and learning. Mindfulness and therapy takes work. It’s not easy, it can hurt... but It didn’t take long, to see the positive ripple effects of this lifestyle and mental change... I met my husband, lived abroad, did all the things I only dreamt of doing and more. I’m 31 now, expecting my first baby (something I used to imagine happening much earlier) I’ve pet an elephant, swam with glowing plankton, met the most wonderful people in my travels, worked for charities and non profits, founded my own charity, helped open the first vocational school in Cambodia, painted a mural in Thailand and the list goes on. ♥️ I took this journey and compiled a mindfulness course that I was lucky enough to share with other women when I was living abroad. I hope to be able to do that again sometime this year. And to those who are struggling, keep fighting the good fight. ♥️
