It’s been a hard week

It’s been a hard week.

Truthfully, it’s been a hard year for me and it’s only February! I’m not doing great right now and that’s okay. My physical health has recently gone downhill, which of course naturally leads to emotional health effects. This too, is okay.

I am only human.

I recently wrote an article “moving into 2020” .All of which I am sticking to, although no one said it would be easy. Getting your shit together requires a level of honesty that is hard to imagine.

There is nothing “easy” about realising that you are the one who has been holding yourself back this whole time.

So today I openly admit, I am struggling and you know what? I’m not ashamed to admit that. Even healthy-minded people have these days!
EVERYONE has these days.

What’s important is what we do with these emotional breakdowns.
I’m working on it. I’m acknowledging it and I’m getting through it.

I am allowed to be both a work in progress and help others at the same time.
I refuse to wait until someone else deems me worthy of impacting others.

I am unapologetically accepting a life of growth, down-falls, rises, and improvements.

 If in doubt, I will continue to go back to the “moving into 2020” article that I wrote to remind myself of the goals that I have set for myself, the mindset that I push myself to remain in and to remind myself of what I have been through and overcame in my life already.

Nothing can break me.

I am Bent, But Not Breaking.

I remind myself daily, “It’s just a bad day, not a bad life Ann! Everything you feel, every experience, every emotion, it’s all temporary”

So to anyone who’s going through it today, I get it.

I’m not going to sit here and tell you that it’s easy, self-growth is fucking hard, but it’s necessary. I want you to know that I am here with you. You’re not alone in this, I am rooting for you and damn right you are stronger than you feel!

It’s okay to cry and have negative moments, it’s what we do after those moments that count. So allow yourself to feel for a moment and know that it’s okay.

You’ve got this.

xoxo Ann
