Being present. #MentalHealth #WorkingOnIt #beingpresent

So for the first time in a long time. Like I can’t even remember the last time I feel present in the moment. Like I am actively apart of my life. I’m not on the side line just watching me go through the motions. While this is awesome it is also so much effort and exhausting. I’m taking back my life as best I can but the toll on me is draining.

The bad part is I don’t have much in the way of people understanding what is going on with me. They see that I am doing things both at work and in my personal life and they are happy for me but they can’t seem to understand how I can go from being awake and all good to just not having the energy to even talk.

Thanks for reading I just needed to get this out.

In the now

I saw this just now and had to post it. I have trouble staying in the present alot-especially when I don’t feel good or am upset. But even though I sometimes don’t want to be in the present (like when my pain is bad, or my grief overwhelms me, or health issues are scary) I want to learn to be here NOW because it’s real. And it’s all I’ve got. And right now I can see that being here right now and dealing with what is, is the only way I can make changes that will help me get to where I want to be.

Rushing and working more willfully to the finish line won't make the finish line come faster because the finishing line becomes the starting line

#52SmallThings #beingpresent We are always worth it.

Been avoiding my phone while eating for the most part this week and honestly, I think it makes me pay attention more to myself and to others around me. I feel grateful for every second given to me. I hope there will be many more. Mental illness can be hard sometimes, possibly all the time, but I am glad for the people and animals that make it worth the fight. Plus, all of us? We are always worth it!

As they say in Harriet the Spy: “Good friends are one of life’s blessings. Don’t give ‘em up without a fight.” :)

I chose to be present today when I ate lunch. I was away from my phone and it was just me and my thoughts. It was very nice. Sometimes it is just so nice to just think. Today I am going to visit a friend. :)


Being Present #52SmallThings #beingpresent

I've thought about putting aside the cell phone during meals recently. Haven't DONE anything about it, but I've thought about it.
SO -- this week's challenge struck a nerve with me. I think the Universe is telling me something.
THEREFORE -- starting tomorrow, I plan to put my cell phone in another room during meals, to become more present in the moment.
