Today is Happiness Wednesday again! The weeks are going so fast..
'I will face my fear . I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. When the fear has gone... only I will remain'- Frank Herbert
Today is a very happy day because I have managed to overcome certain fears that had been holding me back in my life. I never believed that I could get rid of a fear that was at one point- a real phobia and making my life quite difficult. It took a while, many months and reading and following specific books and ideas (mainly using distraction of the mind) to get over this phobia. To desensitise myself and make myself stronger and happier. My friends have been a huge bed rock of support too.
And so yesterday I was able to kick the phobias butt :P and just have a happy and enjoyable day with friends, frolicking in a beautiful town called Windsor outside London where the Queen has a home! (castle), walking through trees and pathways, viewing the castle and hills and of course visiting fudge shop and my favourite place in the world- Cath Kidston!.
So i want to reach out to anyone reading this who also suffers any type of anxiety or phobia- because you can and will get there. I honestly thought my anxiety would hold me back forever but it hasnt ! I've worked on it slowly over many months to get better and I would say i'm 95 percent there. There are days when I have bad days and days when I have good days, you just have to feel it, go with it and above all... distract your mind so those thoughts and sensations don't flood in.
If you are feeling fearful- remember- you are the one in control. And if you have a good support network, you can do anything. I was taught that even if you don't have a good support network- you must rely on you.You are stronger and more capable than you could ever imagine.
I send you love and happy thoughts today.
