Often times we go along in life just doing the daily mundane tasks. There’s no major thought in the process. It’s almost like this robotic routine for people. Many human beings live their lives the same way in and out, not realizing that there is so much more to life.
I’m not sure when or how I become the person that knows there’s more to life than just living a 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd shift. I just have always had this internal know-how that this or that was for me. I always knew that I would get paid to write, although the vision of what that was looked more like, “I will grow up and be a published author” not “I will grow up and people will pay me money to write words for their websites”.
You see, life has a way of ensuring that you end up where you’re meant to be, if only you trust your instinct and the process. Yes, it’s true! We all have this little internal feeling that gears us toward the right direction.
Now, someone who has major anxiety or other mental health issues will not hear or feel this internal reminder that something is right or something isn’t right. I understand this to some extent. I do have the diagnosis of Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This means I live with anxiety over lots of random scenarios.
It could be something as simple as riding in a vehicle with my adult kiddo to a city over an hour away. It could be as something as little as walking down the road to the store. And sometimes anxiety rears its ugly head about going to visit relatives that I’ve obviously known my entire life.
Anxiety is weird like that. I just don’t let it consume and control every moment it arrives.
It’s true, you can learn to live better with anxiety. It’s just about taking teeny tiny steps of pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone that is once you know the triggers. I’ve also learned that reducing my junk intake and rarely ever consuming alcohol has helped dim my anxiety tremendously.
Not only that, but when I actually pause and meditate and breathe I find that my internal notification clock informs me of what’s right. I pause and reflect. I pay attention to my surroundings, such as my angel numbers showing each time I am going in the right direction. Each time my mind makes a thought that’s aligned with my true purpose or lifestyle, those angel numbers, the client work, the family life, and the friendships all align just so.
Simply put, everything just started to feel so right!
That’s not to say that there isn’t chaos to figure out, brokenness to deal with, or situations that could be better within this lifestyle, it’s to say that this one tiny mindful thought is the right one and if I only go with this one choice today that I will be that one step closer to another chapter in life. It will be my next purposeful chapter that’s meant for me to live.

My closing advice for you …
When you trust the process and let go of those human worries, as hard as it is, you’ll find that life soon gets a little easier and you don’t feel as depressed or angry because you’re actually starting to live your truth. Those who run around in anger, or lash out to others online, tend to not be living in a way that serves them well. They have not worked towards healing from past traumatic experiences, or they’re just having a bad day.
I am human, I still experience these lash out moments. These second guessing thoughts. The self doubt, or the anger about something even if it makes no sense. I, too, struggle. That’s why I just wanted to share these thoughts with you today, to tell you that you’re not alone. But also, I wanted to share what I do to stay a bit more sane – and that process is laid out in my brand new ebook & workbook about self reflection.
There are many reasons why we live with anxiety, other fears, anger, or depression; the key for me is to pause and reflect to determine where these feelings are stemming from if they’re coming from a realistic place, and how I can move through those feelings to get to my next purposeful chapter in my life. This, my friends, is what I hope you can start doing to live better.
