It’s Okay to Not be Okay

I love adventure. ❤️.

But for the last 2 days I had been TERRIFIED of leaving the house. Of taking Narra outside to play on her bike. Of going to the store to buy food.

.

It’s totally not me. I love going to places and taking Narra to learn new things. And being out of the house is something I do without hesitation.

.

But anxiety does that to you. It can turn you into someone you don’t know or recognize. And it can be scary to say the least. To feel like you’re losing who you are, to feel like you’re turning into a person so far from your truth.

.

Yesterday, I took my own advice.

.

1. Take the help. Ask for help.

2. Do the thing that scares you most.

.

With help from my neighbours, who have become more like family, I was able to get out of the house with Narra yesterday and pick blackberries. They also took Narra for an hour so I could get dinner made and spend some one on one time with Eric.

.

With the help from one of my friends, a fellow life-changer coach on our team, I made it to the PNE last night for a Ladies Night Out! and even went on a couple of rides that would usually scare me.


.

I’m so grateful right now.

.

For coaching, which has instilled in me this attitude to take massive action and show myself that I can change my current situation, but also for the many people in my life who support me and give me the courage to DO and be okay with not being okay all the time.

.

Do you have advice for your “off” days? What do you tell yourself or those you love when they’re not feeling okay?

.

Let’s support each other. ❤️
