It’s the weekend!
Let me start off by saying that if you’re a regular reader, you’ve probably noticed that I didn’t post a recap last week, I didn’t have a post for Wednesday, and I’m way behind. I haven’t made my weekly notes so I’m going to all over the place, but I promise I do have a purpose for this post and it is actually super weird.
Last Saturday, I had an anxiety attack. It was the first one I’d had in so long. It wasn’t as severe as mine used to be, but that doesn’t make it suck any less. The attack left me feeling so mentally exhausted and it also left me with a lot of physical symptoms, as well. I could hardly keep my eyes open, I was sweaty, nauseous, and my lips were really tingly.
Anxiety symptoms are so unpleasant.
So, as some of you might know if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, for the past two weeks or so, I’ve been spending a lot of time focusing on the LAW OF ATTRACTION and trying to rewire my brain to focus on more positive thoughts.
I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts by Robert Zink, watching YouTube videos by Jake Ducey, and doing guided meditations by Rasa. I want to make a completely separate post about how exactly I’ve been incorporating the LOA into my daily life, but this post is more about how it’s made me feel lately.
Well, I went about 3 or 4 days WITHOUT anxiety and I am completely serious. I kept myself so absorbed in positive videos, words, and thoughts that my brain quite naturally focusing on all of the negative and scary things I usually think about that cause my constant anxiety.
There were even times, especially while I was alone at work, that I would start to think about something that would make me anxious, just out of habit, but my brain wouldn’t go there. I would literally think “Nope! You’re not going there!” and then I would think a positive thought. It turned out that the positive thoughts were beginning to take over and kick the negativity right out of my head.
Over the past two days, I got lazy about the LOA and it started to slip away from my mind. As my focus on the LOA slipped, it has been replaced by anxiety…
I can’t even begin to explain how this realization has made me feel. I feel like I’ve been under my experimentation, and the truth is coming out. I’ve finally realized just how true this LOA stuff is and it is amazing.
Like I said, look out for the post about how I’m bringing the LOA into my life and I’ll continue to post updates along the way! I’ll be back to a normal recap next week, but for now, I’ve got a migraine popping up…
Have a great weekend!
