I have been writing myself letters and memos to tack around the room so that whenever I catch a glimpse of the font in my peripherals, I’ll be absorbing good intentions and vibes. I’ve done this in the past and then ceremoniously removed the pages as I’ve progressed with life and overcome obstacles.
I am facing new obstacles.
I’m hoping that I’ll be reminded that I’m my own hero and that I’ve got everything down, even if it doesn’t feel like it. Sometimes brains are really nasty and they play ridiculous tricks on us. I’m working hard to call bluffs and retrain my brain into not being so deceptive the majority of the time. This sheet is currently stuck to my bedroom ceiling so that it’s the last thing I see at night and first thing I see in the morning.
Change can be wonderful, a sign of new beginnings. However, it can also be a source of major anxiety for individuals like myself who have taken a knock in confidence or struggle with managing their mental health. I could run from the opportunities that are presenting themselves. I could stay like this forever, cooped up in the safety of home. Yet I know, despite all apprehensions and self-doubt, that I am ready for change. I asked for it and now it’s manifesting, little by little. I can’t allow my fear of failure to hold me back anymore. So I’ll keep writing and I’ll keep sending myself these messages, willing myself on with a positive spirit. This year I am learning to be my own hype-man🙏🏽🖋
