ELEVATE


Hello Hello! Wow it has really been a minute since we've talked (I know I say that all the time lol). Things have been pretty busy ever since I found out I was moving. Figuring out all the logistics of things and preparing myself mentally for this big change. It's been a lot, but nothing I can't handle. I feel like mental health is a topic that people often shy away from, because it comes off as a heavy topic. And in reality, the topic shouldn't be too heavy or taboo to talk about. I've realized over the years that I myself suffer from anxiety. Some days are better than others. Some days I just want to stay in bed. But I've been pushing through it. I started reading this book recently called The Unteathered Soul, by Micheal A. Singer, that focuses on dealing with the voice in our heads. The constant chatter that our inner selves and mind have with each other. The second guessing, worry-wort voice is the one I deal with often - like many people with anxiety most likely do. Learning to quiet that voice through meditation and healthy outlets like writing, and dancing is a way for me to release myself from the shackles of my inner anxious voice. These outlets help me realize that what I'm worrying about, may not be anything to worry about. And that when times do get hard, they will always get better. So to all my fellow human beings and beautiful souls, don't let your anxiety control you. I know it is easier said than done, trust me. But starting minor things like meditation and expressive outlets into practice can help quiet that mongrel in your mind called Anxiety.





XO,

Darlene
