Sometimes when I go searching for quotes, I find one that really feels like it was written for me. Like the quote you see above!
For regular readers of my blog, you would know that the past year has not been an easy one for me. Apart from some health issues that I have spoken of, I haven’t revealed all the details and probably never will. When you decide to blog and share your thoughts with cyberspace, you have to do so with caution and share only what sits comfortably with you. Sometimes it is very hard to do this, but so far I think and hope that I am managing to do it ok!
On my Home-About page I do say that I am a worrier. I was not always a worrier. I think it started after becoming a mother and increased from there. I haven’t said it before but I also suffer some anxiety. I haven’t suffered anxiety all my life either. In fact, I had never suffered anxiety until recently. It seems to have come with my late forties. It is not pleasant!
Previously, I have relied on others (oh my poor husband) to ease my worries and anxieties. I am looking for ways to manage it myself. By really digging deep and investigating what makes me happy, what I like to do and what I’m good at, and by having my blog and expressing myself by writing and finally learning some more about photography, and by learning to have an attitude of gratitude, I am seeking to create a lifestyle which fills me with happiness and joy as well as a sense of achievement and pride. When I achieve this, I truly believe that I will find more of an inner peace and hence the worries and anxieties will lessen and I will feel a sense of freedom that has eluded me for quite some time.
