Thursday evening reflections/real talk:
If I could talk to my 24 year old self,
I’d promise her that she will become more than her anxiety. My mind is beautifully active and creates magical things. It is also painfully good at running like a mad man after doubt, fear, and panic. .
Herbally enhanced yoga + meditation along with a supportive community are what changed everything. It has taught me the power and grace that comes from looking inward and loving myself with intentionality. Self love is not selfish. You can’t pour from an empty cup, after all. .
No bogus promises over here though, I know the anxiety MAY never fully leave, but I’m learning how to listen to my body, my mind. I know how to seek stillness and carve space for others to do the same. .
I know how to live even when the panic sets in.
