This blog category is the journaling and journey-ing of my quest to say (with cautious sincerity) “Hello, Anxiety” and to take a look at the condition from my “me-andering” views.
Homework from a recent therapy session found me composing “realistic” affirmations or mantra statements. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist, which is ironic since I never do anything perfectly.
As with most of us, I suppose, I really want life to bend in the direction I desire. But it often (very often) does not.
Here are a few affirmations I will (sometimes begrudgingly) practice:
“My life IS as it IS right now, and I accept that truth.”
“Everything may not be perfect in my life right now, and I am accepting of that truth as well.”
“I’m okay where I am right now.”
“I am who I am right now.”
