Snow Day and Mindfulness

Happy snow day for some I guess, because I haven’t seen on damn flake😂! That’s ok because I decided to finish brushing up on my mindfulness practice and setting my Echo Show to play meditation 🧘🏽‍♂️ music. I love this new gadget, you can program it to do just about about anything! Hell Alexa is my new ‘best friend’! I was elated to find out all the mindful apps I could enable on it! So today I’m going to catch up on some mindful activities, my therapist is going to be so happy with me. Have a great Wednesday and practice mindfulness. Chat soon….

My Affirmations For Today:

As most of you know by now that I suffer from depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc. and for so long I couldn’t see anything good about myself. I looked like I felt, and I wore my depression very well. Bags under my eyes, weight gain/lost, didn’t much do my hair, and barely came out the house. Who knew that finally a day would come that I could believe everything I say about myself. I’m happier than I’ve been n a long time, and I do see how unique I am, how beautiful I am, and how brave I have been. Life was so cruel to me for a while, but no longer will I hide from the curve balls it throws at me. I’m no longer ashamed of my mental illness and welcome all new life challenges. I intend on spending the rest of this year recovering and healing my body, mind, and soul. So today this are my affirmations I put on my vision board, because this is how I finally see myself. Feel free to use these or share with a friend in need of a little encouragement. Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!!
