*****We all need to take time out and notice the positive things in our lives.*****

 

Just Breath, and Pray

No one really knows what tomorrow may bring.  The thoughts of happiness is a great desire that we all want.  To see the sun shining bright and the kids playing outside without fear.  Seeing the friendly faces on our neighbors as we sit on our porch.  Lending a helping hand to those in need, and feeling blessed by doing so.

Life can get tough at times, and it seems like all hell has broken lose.  But just take a deep breath, pray, and know that this too will pass. God got ya!!

Anxiety has Kicked In

I am so anxious right now.  The more the time get close to 5:30pm.  I feel sick.  Yesterday, I started a part time job at a Christian bookstore. Today, supposed to be my second day of training, and yesterday things was fine.  Really since the time I started filling out the application, my anxiety kicked it.  It has been at least 2 years since I lasted worked. Pretty much of my life I have not been able to hold on to a job long because of my mental illness. It was in 2014 when I found out that I had an mental illness.  Depression and anxiety was my life, and I can not shake it no matter how I try.

I feel that I am pushing myself all over again.  I know what’s wrong now, I am taking my meds, and seeing my doctor like I should, so now I can do this thing.  However, this is not the case.

Mental illness looks like???

“They look like they have a problem!”  “Why is he/she acting so crazy?” ” Look at that fool talking to themselves!”

This is just a few words that is spoken about people that we see in our world at times.

What is going on with those people?  Oh, they are crazy!  They have a mental problem.

We look at the movies, T.V. shows, and we have been told how a person with an mental illness acts, and looks.  My question to you is “What mental illness looks like?”  Well it is not all what society claims it to be.

Many do not know:  A school teacher; a doctor; your college Dean; the Pastor of a church can be living with an mental illness.  Just as cancer, high blood pressure, and other illnesses do not discriminate.  Mental sickness is the same way.  You can’t just look at someone and make your own judgement about them.

Stop stereotyping!!  Mental illness is real, and those that have it needs love and support.

“What mental illness looks like?”  it looks as fabulous just like me!!

Becoming The Beloved

Anxiety and Depression.

Two almost catch phrase sorts of words used in society. Nearly everyone I know has said to have one or both of those. On social media or in daily conversation, someone is talking about the fact that people just need to understand that they have these. It makes it hard to have real conversations with people about these very real things, because most of these people are self diagnosing.

When I was young, I was diagnosed with MDD, PTSD, and an Anxiety Disorder. Now, though I don’t let those things define me, I’ve found it’s really hard to have real conversations with people about this. Because everyone has it. The words almost don’t mean anything to anyone anymore. People don’t understand what they mean. They have become trivial and meaningless.

I don’t talk about my difficulty with anxiety and mdd. It’s hard enough finding the words to…

Greatness

There is greatness on the inside of you that needs to come out.  God has placed it there for His glory.  He created us for His purpose.  We are His children and He is our God.  We was created to be whom God made us to be.  You have gifts and talents that will touch others lives just as it will yours.  Stop trying to be somebody that God has not created you to be.  It is so hard to be what others want for you to be.
