HOW IS IT THE END OF OCTOBER?!?! WTH!!!
In a meeting, someone told me that it was the last days of the decade and I had to stop and process that for a while.
The past 10 years have been B.A.N.A.N.A.S.
In the past 10 years I have: Gotten sober. I finished school, I raised a bunch of babies. I moved a bunch. I travelled around Canada and the world. I met the love of my life.
So many things can happen in the span of a month, but shit, 10 years is hard to wrap my head around!
Don't be too hard on yourself. Every day is a new day to choose new, to do new, to create.
October has brought on a deep dive into fear and curiosity and I've done a lot of soul searching around both.
What I've learned:
Fear isn't as scary once you're through it. But right up close it can be terrifying. Remember that you are a 1 strong mofo and are made for hard things.
Curiosity is powerful AF and you can use it to throw fear off its rocker.
Kindness to yourself means you notice when you are scared and reassess the situation. Kindness to yourself means asking yourself questions even when you don't want to know the answer.
I've had anxiety since I was a kid. It would show up in me sucking my bottom lip as a coping tool, or playing with my hair until it would fall out, or even biting my nails.
Confidence is hard when your filled with anxiety. Need a perfect example, talk to a kid in middle school, or a high school kid obsessing over university. Well, friends, this is what we will be discussing for the month of November (still annoyed it starts tomorrow!).
If you have questions about either leave them here and I'll answer them on upcoming blog posts and on the podcast.
