Not All Saviors Has Wings. Sometimes They Have Paws.

On this Monday as I wait for sleep to get here (it is now 4:07am)… I just wanted to give a shout out to my little Hunter baby here.

On December 17, 2022 I had every intention of adopting a doggy and giving him a home.m, not knowing that eventually I would see that I was wrong about me being the savior… he saves me every day.

If you have a wonderful furbaby like Hunter here, give them a big hug and a kiss on their head for they stick with us even when we are at our lowest.

If you don’t have a furbaby (yet), give the person you love or even the person who’s been by your side, never giving up a hug of appreciation.

Let them know how much we appreciate them being in our lives, even at times we might not show it.

Also, give yourself a hug, because YOU are one STRONG individual and I and Hunter believe in you.

Please #stay

I’ve been buying myself a lot of #motivationalshirtsANDsweaters online ever since I found one that spoke to my #soul - and this one sweater pictured here is my favorite one.

It says… “Stay” with added words on the right sleeve… “The world is a better place with you in it.”

Whenever I wear this, my eyes would always drift to my arm and it brings me a little #Hope at a time of getting through this.

I want people to be more #informed and more #aware that the things we go through is a real #illness and that a lot of us suffer from it.

After having a conversation with my favorite #maillady I found out that she too was in my shoes. We both agreed that #oneword or even a #friendlyacknowledgment from someone (that let’s you know that you’re #NotInvisible ) can help us get through the day. Like another shirt of mine says…

“You are #NeverAlone - Keep fighting… everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about.”

I just want the #stigmatoend and have people more #aware because in certain cases, not knowing how to react to something in an #Understanding and #positive way, and instead react #negatively , but not on purpose, that their reactions have the ability to #trigger us back downward, or make the rest of our day #happy

If no one told you today…

How will you respond?

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
OR
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?
Me?
I’ll choose to RISE again and again

Have a 🐝 beautiful day ☀️ #Support #EnjoyTheLittleThings #dirtherapy #youareloved

Some days getting out of bed can be so hard. I try to find healing ❤️‍🩹 in my gardens. As I was having my coffee ☕️ I saw this bee 🐝 in my flowers 🌸 I’ve began to call my gardens dirt therapy on my #SmilingDepression days and when #AnxietySymptoms are trying to control me.
