Lots of thoughts!
Many many things, ideas, memories slipped through my head while listening to this story. I believe I have shaken most all of the demons plaguing me during my hospitalization and recovery these many months...I still have regrets over some of the things I’ve done in my life, but many have blessedly fallen by the wayside with my massive memory problems after my stroke! I’m more than happy to live free of them now!
Sail... a direction of what you value, of what is important to how you want to live your life and f the demons trying to come along for the ride. A worthy guide book : )
Letting go
This is so much about letting go and it speaks to me. Let go of fear of the unknown as well as fear of the loss of the comfortable. It’s such a difficult decision to make, but once you’re on the path the momentum is behind you and you’re moving forward.
Letting them Fall away from MY Life
I learned that these demons are only powerful when given control.
It’s up to me...
I felt like I learned, it’s you who’d ultimately decide or can take control of your future happiness. Uuuugh! I know there was an easier way of saying that.
They never go away...
I learned that the demons that will undermine me will never go away but if I face them every day without fail i will become stronger and they become weaker.
They’re never as bad as they appear.
My problem is that I always dwell on negative things and inflate them or speculate on how bad they are. I need to understand that they aren’t as bad as they seem and cannot let them take over my thoughts
is it really as bad as it seems to be?
things aren’t always as they appear to be in the moment. if we live our lives afraid to face the many challenges, if we live it too scared to go on, then how well of a life are we really leading? taking risks is part of the package to gaining more in a happy, purpose, adventure-filled life.
This app is worth every penny . They said reflection s too short gotta keep writing to post 😅
Demons on a boat
It really has been my own fears and anxieties holding me back from living life as I truly want to.
It’s such a great visual representation of what I’m currently dealing with, within myself. My own crippling anxiety and fears have kept me from loving and doing new exciting things. It was nice to be able to picture what I have been feeling!
