anxiety

Happy Friday!

I am trying to be more consistent with my blogging so I decided a perfect time to discuss an issue that seems to be a daily occurrence in my life.

ANXIETY.

That quote so simply put in to words my life most days.

I can not remember not having anxiety. Like ever. One of my earliest memories is me being in first grade crying my eyes out because my sister is starting Kindergarten and I worried about others being mean to her. It haunts me. It’s not too many days that I don’t have some sort of anxiety. Am I doing good job? Will I ever get out of debt? Why is my car making that noise?  The best way I know how to explain is that it would be easier for you to tell me to stop breathing than to stop worrying.

Some days are better than others. For me, the thing about anxiety is that I know how to stop it. Just stop worrying and give all of my cares to God. Even as typing that, I felt a sense of peace in that but it’s not long lasting. Why? Because I poke hole in every scenario. I think about the 1,000,0000 ways that it will go wrong. When someone talks about the problems, I genuinely give them positive advice and encouragement because I truly believe that God is working it out in their favor but when it comes to myself, I don’t have that same kind of confidence.

For me, my anxiety is lessened when I am able to focus on what I like to do and less about what I feel I must do. I feel that if I could get those two to be the same thing, I would be a happier person. I’ve decided to take an active step to help with my anxiety. It seems to be have positive results. I plan to get back active and learning more coping skills.

Does anxiety give you the blues? What do you do to coping with day to day life? 

 

Have a Great Weekend,

OOTD: Everything is Bigger in Texas Edition

Sooo… I like vacations and I like dressing up and when I get to both, it is a win-win. I was able to attend my family reunion, July 10-12. I wanted to do a quick post to share my outfits.

First off, my cover-up. It is thrifted, of course. I got it from the American  thrift store from Prattville, AL. It was..drum-roll please…$2.

I got this coral  beauty from Wal-Mart for under $10.

I enjoyed my family and was able to get spiritually renewed. I was able to get some confirmation on my purpose. Life should be lived not tolerated.

Fashion should be fun. No one should tell a person what they should or should not wear. This biggest lesson I have learned so far in life is to love myself. I may not be the world’s definition of beautiful but I’ll be damned if you try to tell me I am not. I am beautiful, flaws and all.

You are beautiful. Celebrate your beauty. Daily.

Until Next Time,

Danielle.
