I'm learning to come outside myself, to put myself out there and try new things. This might be coming from my meditation, my growing and reemerging of my rekindled self. It's a hard struggle to grow again after being in depression for so long.
New things: I worked with a trainer. I'm opening myself up to a deeper connection with my friends. For some time now I've been very closed off. I realized that when I don't open myself up to my friends it's a determent to the friendship. I have some really great friends.
Last fall I started by joining a committee. I've never liked meetings but I figured it was a for a good cause....my kids.
I started selling Avon. I'm not an outgoing person so this is a definitely a challenge for me. But there was already a customer base so that is good. Though at this point I'm not even sure why I sell it.
I'm working with a wellness coach and she is great. I've opened up and I have gained a vast amount of knowledge from her to help in my journey. It's just amazing what it has done for me and how far I've come. The setbacks I have are no longer setbacks but stepping stones to my success. So happy about it all.
It's easy to be brave when you are in a positive frame of mind and just happy with life. No life is not perfect but it's a good life!
