A weakness that I’m struggling with …Today, I will be courageously vulnerable by sharing my weakness with the following person …
I am still struggling with standing up for myself and facing the fear of rejection. In order to learn to stand for myself, I feel that I must realize that I am worth standing up for. It takes a lot to get there, however.  I must come to terms with being who I am. The steps I am taking to do that is forgiving my biological father, being at peace with being his daughter, learning to honour God&#…

If my life was a movie and it started today, what would the hero do?What old routines and patterns would the hero break?What new habits would the hero replace those old habits with?

She would take each day as it comes. One step at a time to be the best person she can be. She would place her trust in Christ, and grow in confidence and faith. She would await the rising of the sun, with excitement, take on the day, fearlessly. She would push through the afternoon with endurance. Then she wou…

Before we get to today's challenge. I wanted to share my mum's and my ministry! I'll be bringing it back to life as soon as I can! take a peek!


TODAY'S BRAVE ACT:

Spend time listening to your thoughts of 'not enough.'

These voices of 'not enough' are there because there's something to be learned. Today, write down all the ways you’ve been telling yourself you are not enough. Thank those thoughts for helping you better understand yourself, and let them go as you say, “I am enough.”

Before we continue with the challenge. If you had the chance to adopt fursonas, would you do it? Do you enjoy unique pieces of specially- created art from the heart? And if you had money would you buy any from an artist that isn't well known to support them (and on patreon?) Want free public use-approved art?

DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY:


Day 4/30 of Brave: TODAY'S BRAVE ACT:
Take a mindful moment to count 5 slow breaths in a row. It's harder than you may think. Here's a guide for The One-Minute Meditation:
Breathing in through the nose,f Breathing out through the mouth.
Breathing in feeling the lungs expanding, Breathing out feeling a sense of letting go.
Breathing in to feel the body getting fuller, Breathing out to feel the release of any tension.
Breathing in feeling alive and awake, Breathing out feeling muscles relaxing.
Breathing in that sense of fullness, Breathing out that unnecessary tension in the body and mind.

TODAY'S JOURNAL PROMPTS
One of my greatest strengths has always been …​One of my greatest weaknesses that I acknowledge …
I would say one of my greatest strengths is rising after a failure and carrying on. Even when I want to give in, desperately, I don't quit. Pushing through has always been my signature in life. I can say that I give up, but I don't know the word. I really love this about my personality.
One of my greatest weaknesses that I acknowledge is that I don't know boundaries very well. I tend to…

Before I get into today's challenge for the day... I wanted to share a few things. First off, in my recovery, I've been using a site called...

Anyhow... normal voice scripting now. This great website has an iPhone and Android app (and for those who do not have smartphones, it has a website, thus, the reason I wanted you to click the pic) and is an epic way to track your road to recovery. It is designed to help you break unhealthy and destructive habits and make new healthy, and productive ones. It treats your life as an RPG Game and is a good way to also keep track of to-do lists.

And well, I've reached level 68 in it. Been using it since April or May. And as you can see, below... I set a few tasks made to help me through my recovery, including placing #30daysofbrave as a daily task... Anyhow that is my shout-out for today...




Day 2/30 of Brave:TODAY'S BRAVE ACT I will hold myself accountable to completing my 30-day goal by making one of the following commitments:

Taking up the #30daysofbrave challenge xD While I was going through youtube, I stumbled across a video done by Psych2go called "13 things people don't know you are doing because of your anxiety" I watched it and saw their shout-out to the challenge. Thanks Psycho2go! You all are helping so many people with your informal videos! And a special thanks goes to Intention Inspired for thinking up the challenge!


Day 1/30 of Brave: TODAY'S BRAVE ACT:  Choose a physical object to serve as a reminder of why you committed to this 30-Day Brave Challenge.



I chose my gryphon pendant. I'll hang it either by my door or next to my laptop. When I am not wearing it.

The Lyrics In The Title Came From...

Introduction Life has been rough lately. But I've been working to improve myself and to cope with my issues. The way I'm doing it is the most unorthodox way you could ever do it though. And believe me it is something WILD! But I'll get to it at the end!
I'm Not Perfect... As many know I have severe BPD, Bipolar NOS, and anxiety/panic disorder. Often times I have difficulty living through it. I do many things I truly regret which often leaves me in bed, all day, I feel things deeply and am very turbulent. And, regrettably, I can walk all over my friends.  
Although it's not all bad to have these things, as they also helps me learn perseverance. It also makes life a daily a struggle... I struggle to even keep up with my hygiene to get y'all see how bad it is. So sometimes, I find myself not noticing how I treat my friends and family. I emotionally vomit and cross boundaries, without even knowing I'm doing it. Recently, I …
