I’ve been debating over this for a few days! And I’m hella’ scared posting this.
So #todayIWas Scared.
I feel we can overlook our achievements whilst surviving our Mental Health. I know it can be a struggle to get out of bed some mornings and if that is the case, and you manage it – I’m proud of your bravery!
Whilst I was walking to a meeting the other day, I took the opportunity to have a reflective walk and think about the times I, or someone I know, has struggled to complete the tasks most folk take for granted!
For me, my own personal thoughts, in recent months, surrounding having to face another day – interacting with anything living filled me with dread. I just wanted to lock myself away and sleep. But, i never celebrated the fact, I was able to motivate myself to get out of bed, get myself ready and get out of the house.
I strongly feel that these, personal achievements should be celebrated, no matter how small you feel that they are! They are relevant, they are important.
On that note, I wish to encourage you, at the end of the day, take some time to practice some self-care and just think “#TodayIWas”
This can be followed by anything – even if you are feeling low today, record it, use it as a point of reflection- and see how far you’ve come! (It is okay to have bad days!)
This needn’t be exclusive – if you’re supporting someone who’s struggling with their Mental Health then just think “#TodayIWas” a listener, a comforter. You can make a difference.
This was a bit of an impromptu post, so much so, I’ve posted on the mobile app, apologies if the format is all over the show!
It’d be lovely to see the use of #TodayIWas across social media platforms in order to celebrate everyone’s achievements 😊
Until next time;
