In my last post, The Seeds of Change, I talked about how I thought of making a big change, quit my job, do the things I had been dreaming about. It took 4 years to make it happen.
In those 4 years a lot of stuff happened. Many things changed in my job that caused stress and anxiety. So much so that I had to take a 2 and half month break from work. When you are in the middle of an extreme amount of stress and anxiety, you cannot see the way to get out of it. This break allowed my brain to relax enough that I could see the other side.
And on that other side, I was able to say yes to things that I thought I couldn't before.
I realized that I matter and I am the one who controls my own happiness. I am in control of my mind and what I put into it. If I continually think negative thoughts, then that is what my mind gives back to me. If I change those thoughts, then my mind has a whole new perspective and I can find joy in the little things, but also say yes to the big things, like taking a 3 week vacation to New Zealand.
Give your brain a break from its current thoughts. Make one small change that can lead to bigger things.
