How often do you see people around you laugh? be carefree? do silly things?
The other day I went to pick up a few items from a store with my teenage daughter….I was being myself, I was carefree and I was happy….(oh, and I was singing to myself…)
My daughter looked at me and told me with a twinkle in her eye and a sprinkle of sarcasm: Mommy, you really need to learn how to behave in public!”
I answered laughing: “First of all, that’s not going to happen…. Second of all, do you want me to be a serious, dull, wrapped in her head mom?
She said: “No! Keep singing….”…and she laughed.
She knows that I was that kind of mom….because she knows my story,
Although she may not remember as she was too little at that time…
I was dull, not making jokes, not laughing,
I was serious, because life was “tough” and “needed to be taken seriously.
I was constantly wrapped in my head, no matter if I was home, or outside,
I was overthinking all the what ifs scenarios of my future and the future of my kids,
I was dreading the morning, dreading the responsibilities of the day,
I was tossing and turning at night, unable to stop the racing thoughts in my head,
I was crying in a bathroom when my kids were asleep and I was alone,
I was miserable, and ….
I was exhausted.
I tried so hard to be happy….
I really wanted to be a happy mom to my happy kids.
I ate healthy food and fresh berries to have energy,
I exercised 3 x a week to be fit,
I was going for walks,
I did affirmations,
I was telling myself “just think positively”,
I tried EFT, tapping on myself several times a day,
I recited mantras,
I spent thousands of dollars on naturopath visits and supplements orders,
I drank herbal teas….
But no matter how many “downward dogs” I did,
no matter how many “Happiness Is Your Natural State” self-help books I read (and trust me, I read hundreds!!),
no matter how many “miraculous” meditations on youtube I listened to…
The fears that were overtaking my entire state of mind, my body, my day, my life…were still present, controlling my daily life…
…and all those things I did served just like band-aids, giving me a false hope and making me to waste my days, weeks, months, years…. and life.
Until I changed what was THE REAL REASON of my daily stress, mid-night insomnia, and ever-present fears….I was being the person I was taught I need to be and my mind was holding onto that personality like a dog with a bone….
