Mindful

Hey readers,

My word of the week is

MINDFUL.png

because as a person I am anxious and neurotic at the best times, I am autistic and always self conscious about how I communicate whether that be verbal or non-verbal. I have a lot of self-doubt and I am on edge a lot as a parent. But this week when I have had really high levels of anxiety, I have embraced and gone with it. This is something that I am not very good at because it is scary, generally with my anxiety I get a LOT of intrusive thoughts. It has really been really effective, not all the time but a small time. For me that is progress because I am a firm believer in baby steps and anxiety is something I have to live with. But this week I felt quite proud of my work, it takes a lot of courage to change especially when you are not feeling 100%.

So, I am going to take this opportunity to big myself up because no one else will. You know what I can get stuck perfectionist ways so it is good to see the positive.

Cheers for reading X
