Hello everyone! This week has been the most hectic week ever. I move on Friday and am feeling more emotions than ever. This is the first time I’ll be moving away from home we’ve got a long drive a head of us, All the way from Washington to Arizona. I think once I get there excitement will set in, but I have been the most anxious ever. What I’ve come to talk about today is anxiety over the future.
I’m the type of person that thinks about the future a lot more than people think I do. I have HUGE dreams and big things I want to accomplish in life. There are so many plans I have in my head that seem so amazing and I know in my heart that I will get there, but getting there can sometimes be the hard part and anxiety can definitely accompany that.
YOU can make it through whatever you’re getting anxious about. Whatever worries you have probably aren’t as worrying as they may seem to you at this point in time.
In our society today our world is very anxious as a whole and everyone thinks that you have to have a career by a certain age and to forget “that thing” that really makes you happy but “won’t” pay the bills. I want to tell you or yell it from the roof tops that if doing “that thing” makes you happy DO IT, because if you don’t one day you’ll look back on your life and wonder what could have been rather than looking back and saying “damn I did that and I made that happen and I’ve gotten to live a life I love”
Drop all the worrying, close your eyes, take a deep breath and live your life to the absolute fullest. If you’ve been saying no to things that might seem hard or that you’re worried about, think about all the possible positive outcomes that current situation could have. Think that once of you’ve done it and said YES you’ll be happy that you’ve done it and accomplished it. TRUST ME. I know as hard as it can be to say yes to things in life that worry you or bring you anxiety, it paves a road to conquer it.
I’m so excited about moving but at the same time I’m anxious as hell. I honestly know though, once I get there and get settled I’m going to be so much happier and hope to live a healthier life down there. Coming from a small town I feel as though it’s hard for people to leave a small town, that’s why most don’t. I have the most amazing family I could ask for and it’s definitely going to be hard not seeing them all the time, because we are such a close family, but I know they’ll be with me all the way while I take this journey.
