Day 2. How have you changed in the past two years?
Physically I have lost 30+ lbs by cutting back on my food intake and also by implementing Whole30 into my lifestyle. Mentally and emotionally I have grown by leaps and bounds. I had a nervous break down a few years ago and wound up hospitalized for clinical depression and acute anxiety. I was at my all time low. I don’t know how but by the Grace of God I was spared, not only that but flourished. It was as if all the good advice I had received over the years; whether it be from a therapist, psychiatrist, friend, or family member – – – had all just “clicked” at once and set inside me. I grew from there.
I now focus on what is important in life, the main deal ~ my family. Everything else takes a back seat. I no longer search for approval from ANYONE. Nobody, nada, zero, zilch. I come from a rich strong core and navigate my way from there. I accept myself for who I am; flaws and all. I embrace my flaws and try to work on them, I’m constantly growing and evolving. I accept that I have depression, anxiety, PTSD, and OCD but they do NOT define me. I am a constant work in progress and have made major tracks in the past two years. I don’t see myself ever going back to that dark place where I once was. I think that was my low point.
THIS is the list that I’m working off of, if you wish to join in ~ please do!
