Family!​

 

Whew, the first 31 days of this year has been trying, to say the least. I personally know people who entered the year defeated, losing a loved one, taking on life from a lonely place, and filled with so many insecurities because of the unpredictability that our world brings us.

 

I would be a terrible counselor and a even more terrible friend if I told you to ignore your feelings. You know, those deep feelings of pain, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, worry, fear, and doubt. It is unusual to embrace those feelings, especially at the beginning of the year because everyone is "suppose" to feel hopeful, excited, and optimistic about what the new year holds. However, it is challenging to get rid of those deep, painful emotions when the world around you is filled with feelings of unsettledness due to the unknown.

 

So, acknowledge and accept those feelings, BUT have the audacity to walk away from those feelings.

 

Once those feelings are acknowledged and accepted, use coping skills to move forward. We have the power to change the trajectory of our life no matter what has happened in the past. Grit, tenacity, and resilience is built in the valley, but humility, growth, and power is given on the mountain. The valley is not your permanent place of residence; it is only for a moment. Remember to not sulk in those feelings but do something about it!!!

 

 

So, you...yes you...keep pressing !❤️​
