A Queen's Diary
Anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, worry, stress, fear...... With the tragedies endlessly unfolding in the world around us, it seems almost impossible NOT to become consumed by at least one amid these unprecedented times. COVID-19 has forced us to sit still for a minute and think. Sometimes, that can be a bad thing.
At times, being forced to think alone for so long, our minds automatically revert to reflecting on everything negative. We get comfortable in our mental illnesses to where we ourselves can't even recognize them because any other feelings feel unusual. Our bodies began to suffer physically for the things that we allow to consume our minds and enter into our spirits. We have to put effort into stopping this toxic cycle within ourselves and live a life manifesting things we hope for, not the things we live in fear of. I, for one, deal with a lot of anxiety! Life at times doesn't seem to be fair but who ever said it's supposed to be? A majority of the time, I worry about every possibility of something bad happening because of my past experiences, especially things I have absolutely no control over.
Examples: Coronavirus, the weather, your child is getting older, Donald Trump..... No wait! WE DO have control!.. 2020 has taught us that we should always expect the unexpected, plan ahead but also live in the moment, be aware but not afraid, proceed with caution, always keep a positive mindset and always do what's best for you! No matter how big or small the hope is, feed it because it's easier to find all the reasons in the WHY NOT instead of the reasons in the WHY. You must use your mental and emotional energy to create a positive atmosphere but you have to start within! Be Hopeful! Be Encouraged!
