I'm starting this again guys! Please join in. ⠀⠀ 🍊 POSITIVELY-ORDINARY 🍊
⠀⠀ We did this a while ago when both Ali and I where going through a tough period of depression. It was a way of encouraging ourselves to look for the positive and extraordinary in the ordinary, little pops of hope and encouragement. If you look hard enough beauty and positivity is everywhere even in the bleakest of moments.
What also happened is you guys started sharing your #positivelyordinary Posts and together we all lifted each other up. So please get involved.
This morning I'm using this beautiful pic, my friend @bleachboxphotographygallery sent it to me on a day she knew I was feeling blue. It put smile on my face and made me feel loved and hopeful. ⠀⠀
The fear of forgetting, fear of being forgotten or ignored...emphasis on the last two...
I sometimes run into this setting when I’m deep in thought as I work which is positive and negative for me, (-) installs temporary lack of self worth. (+) improves my ability to make the work fit the concept I’m shooting for(usually in relation to my mood).. in relation to this path, the phobia essentially comes as a “bi-product” observation to ones initial feeling of. “Loneliness” which then can be seeded either by 1.) Being secluded. 2.) Being around a group of people you’re out with. 3). Lack of social communication.
For my self care- usually with minimal care I seed an idea of patience for my life whilst in short-term prayer about wrongs I believe have been dealt and how even sometimes...the exposure of my thoughts and feelings to social media push people away from me”gradually”; am honest psychoanalysis of the connection to people I use to communicate with 24/7 or every other day to now, none at all or barley any...not really there fault; only the condition of my own mental health was to blame..I leave the rest of what could be written about this to just flutter in the air while I shut my eyes to another nights rest. .
I hope the realizations you have in your life lead you to much progress for improvement..
Not just for kids! This is something anyone who’s finding things hard needs to remember. Things crop up all the time and those feelings of not being able to cope can creep in. Take a few slow breaths and remind yourself you can do it. (They did for me today - appointments and then a flat tyre and other car problems and complete exhaustion got to me) Pulling out the oils to pick me up a bit, and 🍷 it is Friday after all 🤣
Not feeling the best today I'm having what I call one of my wobble days. On wobble days I really have to make a conscious effort to push on and do my routine. As if I don't one bad day leads to another bad day a bad two days lead to a bad week then a month and before I know it I've spiralled out of control.
Being self aware is important for revovery I'm continuously looking for signs and symptoms and instead of saying well 'Just for today I'm not going to do my routine.
That just for today attitude is what makes me slip up so I'm going to carry on regardless. Because I know by tommorow if I don't follow my morning rituals I will be in a worse state than today the longer something goes on the harder it is to break. #anxiety#morning#mentalhealth#mentalillness#happiness#depression#eupd#emotional#mentalhealth bulimia #adultswitheds#peace#edrecovery#ana#edfamily#edfighter#recovery#sunshine#positive
Instead of thinking about everything mental illness might have taken from you, think about everything that it’s given you. - Steph, batyr & Onewave speaker.
Such a positive and powerful morning with @onewaveisallittakes for their 5th birthday down at #bondibeach . Incredible to be part of so many compassionate people dressed in fluro to smash the stigma, raise awareness about mental health and give a voice to the elephant in the room! And an amazing speech done by one of our speakers, Steph, who used mornings with the Fluro Friday’s crew when she first started with us to practice delivering her batyr speech 🙌
I wish.....I could be normal.
I wish all of these mental illnesses would go away. No matter what I do, I ruin my life.
Extreme Anxiety. Severe Depression. Mild Autism on top of all of that. I'm struggling so hard to survive in my own brain.
I am not my mental illnesses. But I can't be who I want to be with them either. I just can't. It's a snap reaction when things go wrong. I try so hard to talk myself down. I cry it out almost daily. But it's never enough.
It's just too much to handle some days. And I wish I could just disappear. Fade as way and stop existing.
Fun Fact for the day!
Do you know what the most successful people have in common?
They invest in themselves! 🙌
Personal development is huge for as I want to always learn & grow, so I am the best version of myself FOR me but also for those who would like to be a part of my self developmental journey! 💕
So many people tell me they don't have enough time for personal development or to learn or to grow or to even try something new & step out of their comfort zones! 😕
BUT did you know that the average driver spends 500-1000 hours in their car each year? Why not turn your driving time into learning time?
Research has search learning materials such as podcasts & training calls to increase your confidence, self - esteem & productivity! 🙌
Sooo Come step into my office & let's do this together!!! 😘💕
this world has tiny sources of cheer scattered all over. it lies in so many different corners- in a friend's laugh, a lover's embrace, a dog's yapping (!!!) and sometimes it feels like we're deprived of them. but cheer also lies in the inanimate- in a peaceful walk, your favourite song, a Britney Spears bop (trust me), and in so much more. it's hard to be happy, because to be happy means to not have worries. but maybe we can strive to be cheerful, and face things with a smile- by finding happiness in the little things that give us comfort.
(Sorry for the late (and kinda shoddy) post, I've got my last final on Monday, so I've been prepping for that! This is inspired by something my mother once told me "If you feel like life can't be happy, then aim to be cheerful and kick life's ass with a smile!". Reasons to smile lie in the smallest of things, but they can have such a big impact on your well-being.)
