No one said life would be easy.
No one guaranteed us anything.
I didn’t ask for the #CPTSD the #ChronicDepression the #MajorAnxiety I didn’t ask for the #UlcerativeColitis the #CrohnsDisease the #diverticulosis the #Diabetes
I didn’t ask for being part of less than 1%of the ENTIRE WORLD having both inner ears damaged beyond repair. I didn’t ask for the #Tinnitus ringing so loudly in both ears I sometimes can’t hear what ppl say. I didn’t ask for any of this. But I have them and more
They way I see it?
I have 2 choices
I can learn to live with what I have and take #ONESTEP 🦶🏼at a time to do my best. Even if it’s minute to minute
I can be a victim, feel sorry for myself, “woe is me”
I’m learning that I can’t control everything. This is a hard one for me.
I like to know what’s going on, what will happen, I over analyze EVERYTHING and then do it again. It’s a viscous cycle
My mind always races
What about this? What about that? You should have did/said whatever this or that
I’m sure a lot of you know the “Coulda Shoulda Woulda” game we all play
STOP 🛑 ✋🏻
Take a deep breath
My therapist told me something recently that “clicked”
She said “Focus on the things you CAN control, not the things you can’t.” She was right. I’m a #workinprogress but I’m trying 🙂
When I start to focus on what I CAN control, my #Stress levels go down just a bit. The #AnxietyAttack is at bay just a bit longer and I feel just a bit better.
It’s amazing what can happen when focused on what I can control and #letgo of what I can’t.
This is one of my favorite #mantras
Which one will you choose?
I’ll choose to RISE again and again
Whoever is reading this remember:
I remember that when I draw this I use it and stress relief. That's why the paper is super full eheh.
I'm always trying to use colours more. I love to draw but I can't seem to do well with colours. I love colours but can seem to create a good combination. It's a interesting challenge for me tho eheh.
The flowers that I drew are random so I don't know if they are similar to real flowers ahahah.
I hope you all are having a good day my fellow artist and art lovers.

Numerous people misinterpret the word “stress.” Stress isn’t necessarily a negative thing. Stress is a key instinct to our survival and advancement as human beings. Of course, there are certain levels of stress where it is unhealthy to have it. Working on eliminating the stress factor (that thing in your life causes you stress). That factor can be deadlines, family issues, studies, etc. These stress factors will not leave you alone in peace; not unless you eliminate them, and no one will do that for you. Be the changing factor and control your stress before it does to you. esacare.com/3-mental-health-benefits-of-pets-by-14-famous-pet-lovers
