A taste of recovery

Yesterday I had a taste of recovery.

I did activities that make me anxious but pushed forward through them. If someone interrupted me, I continued on. If I felt like starting over, I didn't. When my mind was cloudy and my vision blurry, I told myself that was OK. And here and there, I started to have some clarity—some glimpses of what it would be like without all this anxiety.

I got a lot done yesterday, and I feel good about that. If my anxiety impaired my performance, then oh well! I did the best that I could. Even though I was anxious yesterday, I know I made progress, and that was a great way to start the weekend!

Having a near anxiety free day is one of the best feelings in the world. It's like having a gorilla sit on you and all of a sudden get up. All the pressure from day to day bs gets put on the back burner and you can actually relax!

Glad you had a good day.

I hope the taste has whetted your appetite for more of the same. Its an incredibly empowering feeling to get even just a quick glance at recovery.

I wish you all the best.
