Last week, it was pointed out to me how quickly I answer my emails and how hard I have been working over last few weeks (probably the last few months). On reflection, I have hardly had a day off for a really long time, where I have not been on my laptop working on my range of projects.
Firstly I am sorry for the times I slated you…
The times I wished my hips were smaller or my boobs were bigger.
The times when I was younger constantly wishing I was in a different body.
Living with a chronic illness can sometimes feel like a full-time job. What with juggling hospital appointments, visiting your GP, collecting medication, chasing up referrals, running a house and maybe a family. It is easy to lose an element of ‘you’ and to be consumed by your chronic illness.
I have always struggled with confidence, in particular, trusting my gut instinct and trusting decisions I have made. I can see how much this has held me back so on the 4th February 2018 I took part in a 30-day course called ‘Confidence for Success’ by the amazing life coach Emma Dawson.
Last year on Facebook Emma’s sponsored advertisement popped up on my page and I was intrigued. So I liked Emma’s Facebook Page and I joined her Facebook group "Bring Your Dreams to Life" I found the group was very inspiring and I loved Emma’s live chats. I quickly realised regarding my blog and the advocating I do that sometimes I lack confidence and doubt myself. When Emma advertised this course something spoke to me and I decided to enrol to build and nurture my confidence.
I wrote a Facebook post last week about the ‘affirmations’ I am practicing at the moment to help me get through a tough time. I just would like to say a thank you Stephie at colitistoostomy for persuading me to write a proper post about what affirmations are, the science behind them and how they can help people with chronic illness.
