I truly feel like my entire perspective on life has shifted. My mood is so much brighter.
I don't even know where to begin. In the last 5 days, I truly feel like my entire perspective on life has shifted. My mood is so much brighter. Where I used struggle to keep up, I'm now on top of everything that I need to be on top of.
Like you said, since I've had my passions written down, I'm constantly seeing opportunities to get in touch with them. And the more often I decide to take advantage of those opportunities, everything else just feels like it's falling into place. That negative voice in the back of my mind is barely audible now. Just a few nights ago, I started to wonder if I was ok mentally - I kept thinking, it can't be normal to feel so intensely satisfied and happy. I'm still blown away, considering nothing external changed. I always made excuses that 'as soon as this or that changes, then I'll be happy'. How deceiving that mindset was!
For the last 3 nights, I've had long conversations with my husband that only used to happen years ago before the kids, and maybe even before we were married. Without any prompting or knowing about my passion exercise, he started offering all these ideas of what he could do to help get me out of the house for some really long bike rides. It was at that point that I shared with him everything I experienced and he was 'surprisingly' (but it probably shouldn't have been) supportive and excited for me.
I can't thank you enough for giving me such a gift of your time and expertise. It has made such a crucial change in only a few days. I'm excited that this is just the beginning of a life-long journey. ~
