Another Source For Inspiration!

Hey everybody! I am now creating items at not one, not two, but at three storefronts at Teespring! First, I am creating and selling merchandise at B.W.’s Literary Closet – a place where you can find merchandise dealing with reading and writing in general and my own books. I am also still helping create some merchandise over at Travis’s Teespring storefront at Travis and The Brain (so far I have helped with creating the ‘Roll the Dice’ mug). Last, but not least, I have just created my own inspirational storefront at Teespring that includes some of the quotes I have created through the years. This store is called B.W.’s Inspirational Highway. I am still working out some of the kinks on the last storefront mentioned, but hopefully the issues will be solved soon. I will keep you all updated! Additionally, I will post a link for the Inspirational Highway storefront in my menu on both here and, my other blog, Rest in Piece.

Thank You,

B.

Being Proud

If you struggle with anxiety or another mental health issue, you may find yourself constantly doubting your strength and abilities. Let me just tell you, that you are not alone. Just yesterday I was questioning how anyone could find me inspirational as there were a couple of times during the day where I felt quite, well…pathetic.

However, last night, I really realized something. I am strong and capable of getting through my anxiety. Yes, I may need some help along the way, but that doesn’t make me weak.

I had a pretty good day yesterday. I went to church in the morning (which was a bit difficult, but I managed to get through it), I spent time at home with my family, and then I went out to visit a relative in the hospital.

Going to the hospital was the most nerve-wracking part of the day for me. It’s hard for me to go out as it is sometimes, and going to the hospital is always a little stressful, even if you’re not there for yourself.

While I did ask for help when it came to getting around, I was very proud of myself. For one thing, I went to the hospital to visit my relative in the first place. There was a time where I may not have even tried. As horrible as that might sound, anxiety can make it extremely hard to do things – even if they are things you know you should do. Also, while I did get help when it came to walking into and out of the hospital, I did relatively well while visiting my relative and didn’t struggle as much as I usually might while going out.

I know how difficult it can be to be proud of ourselves. Whenever we struggle, it can seem like a constant reminder of our issues having the ability to take control. What we have to remember, though, is that while we may face many challenges, we also experience many victories – that is what we must focus on.

Yesterday, I did many great things. I went to church and stayed the entire time, I had a great time celebrating Christmas at home with no anxiety, and I went to the hospital to visit my relative; not asking to leave before my family was ready. The fact that I may have struggled a little here and there is not what’s important, but that I did an overall good job and got through my anxiety, is what matters.

Next time you accomplish your goals, remember to be proud of yourself! Don’t spend too much energy focusing on the negative when you could be focusing on the positive!

I hope you all had a great holiday!

Starting Early

This post is inspired by Sarah Warsi’s, And Just Like That, It’s December.

I think it’s been since my anxiety really hit hard, that I’ve started making New Year’s resolutions. They usually have to do with making a more consistent effort when it comes to exercising and facing my fears. While I think that it’s important and a good idea to make these resolutions, I do think that setting the date for January 1st can be a bit problematic.

As I believe was Sarah’s point to her blog post (and I really hope I’m understanding this right), the concept of setting dates to begin our goals can be extremely stressful. Sitting there and thinking to ourselves that we have to start on the first of the new year or else can bring about so much pressure that it actually makes us more hesitant to begin or stick to our plans for progress.

This is what I’ve noticed about myself – every year I make these resolutions and while I do start out sticking to them, it doesn’t last very long at all. As my therapist mentioned on more than one occasion, in order for the exercising and facing of fears to have a lasting impact, you have to do it on a consistent basis. This, I’ve noticed, is very hard for me.

So this year, I’ve decided to do things a bit differently, and I’m hoping this plan will work. I’ve decided to begin trying harder to get through my anxiety today. I’ve decided to start exercising more today. I’ve even figured out my own schedule that I will try my hardest to stick to.

So here is my advice to you. Instead of picking a specific date and obsessing about starting to work harder then, try to start as soon as you feel you can. This will help you get used to new, healthier habits that will hopefully – promote progress. Good luck with your goals and have a happy holiday!
