Attending Mindful Bootcamp

Hello loves, ❤

I pray you are all doing well.

I wanted to address something within this blog post, I received an email from someone who would like to remain anonymous – She asked me how did I overcome my anxiety bc my life seems so great (as she follows me on instagram) & all my blog posts are so uplifting, she has also asked for tips & tricks on how to conquer anxiety.

I need to pop this bubble now

I need to address this NOW.

I am not perfect, my life is not perfect, my days are not perfect, my mindset is not perfect, my anxiety is not perfect.

Please remember that I like to share blogs that uplift people, help others who are struggling & help my followers see light at the end of the tunnel.

I never intended in making a blog site that was filled with ‘I hate my life, I hate anxiety, I had a crap day, I hate everyone & everything’

I go through a lot on my end, for example, I am recovering from a tough weekend both mentally & physically at this very point in time.

I have had a very anxious weekend that was filled with panic attacks & an episode of vertigo. (If you have ever had vertigo, you will understand my pain).

Sometimes I have GREAT days but then sometimes I have BAD days – And, that is the beauty of anxiety, you never know what sort of day you are going to have.

Please don’t think bc of what you see on my instagram that I have a ‘perfect’ life. A lot of people will not portray negativity of their instagrams or blogs for that matter. You never know what is going on behind closed doors for someone.

Just know, I have had anxiety for the last 4 years & I know that there is no ‘CURE” for anxiety but learning how to live with it & control it.

I am looking into ways of learning how to control my anxiety for the rest of my life.

I have just paid for an anxiety course that starts on 10/05/2018, called Mindful Bootcamp.

I am SO excited for this ❤

The course is broken out into Thursday night classes for 4 weeks, the classes get broken into the below:

Week 1. 
Self Concept/Esteem & Confidence
(Knowledge, Understanding, Development)

Week 2.
Stress, Anxiety & Depression
(Key Triggers, Feelings, Rationality)

Week 3.
Anger, Conflict & Resolution
(Key Triggers, Emotions, Control)

Week 4.
Habits, Patterns & Behaviours
(Thoughts, Actions, Consequences)

I  am excited to share this with you, bc I am all about learning new things & sharing them with my lovely followers ❤

So please understand when I say, my life is not PERFECT & that I struggle just like the next person. I try not to look at life so negativity & I know for a fact that I don’t want to portray my anxiety onto my blog.

I love you all to the moon & back & want to thank you for your support, guidance, love & inspiration. It’s bc of all you lovely people that I do see light at the end of the tunnel, you all help me see the light ❤

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

I’m Sorry If My Overthinking Makes Me Difficult To Love

Hello loves, ❤

You could send me a text message with only one or two words and I will still overthink what your sentence meant. You could smile at me from across a crowded room and I will overthink what the look meant. I wish I knew what other people were thinking because I spend so much of my time trying to read their minds.

I’m sorry if my overthinking makes me difficult to love. I’m not trying to cause drama where none exists. I’m only trying to protect my heart.

I don’t want to be the person who gets blindsided when their partner cheats. I don’t want to overlook the red flags. I don’t want to be caught off guard. I would rather see the betrayal coming. I would rather know what is waiting for me down the road.

Since I’m so worried about the what ifs, I pay too much attention to detail. I will notice the slight change in your tone and instead of assuming that you must be tired or had a stressful day at work, I will assume that you are mad at me. That you are hiding something from me. That you want nothing to do with me.

I come across as sensitive because I make a big deal out of things that shouldn’t have been given a second thought. You will make a bad joke, and instead of brushing it off, I will overthink what the words meant. The tiniest problem will snowball into me wondering whether you secretly can’t stand me.

I’m always ready for things to go wrong. I’m always on edge, observing the people around me to prepare for what happens next.

Even if a relationship is going perfectly well, I will make a list in my head of all the ways it could fall apart. I could get ghosted. I could get cheated on. I could get dumped. I could have my heart shattered and spend years trying to jam the broken pieces back into place.

When the world brings me too much happiness at once, I get suspicious. I assume something horrible is about to happen to balance out my emotions.

When I’m in the shower or driving in my car, I will have arguments with you inside of my head. I will imagine all of the things you might say to me when we talk for real. I might accidentally get mad at you, even though you haven’t done anything wrong yet. I might make myself more paranoid than I have any right to be.

I’m sorry if I become quiet after the smallest thing goes wrong. I’m sorry if it seems like I’m always overreacting. I’m sorry if my overthinking makes me difficult to love.

I’ve been trying to follow my head instead of my heart because I have been hurt before and I’m scared it’s going to happen again. I’m scared you are going to leave. I’m scared you are going to break me apart.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
