Social Anxiety is the WORST!!

Ever feel like you can’t breathe? Like if you do something you will stop breathing completely? Like you know you have to do something but your whole body reacts as if someone is coming at you with a knife?!

When you would feel so happy to just sit in bed all day! Never leaving because you know you are safe there. You know no one else will talk to you there.
Well this is how I have been feeling, especially when think about the things I need to do. The things I want to do, because I have a business that I LOVE!

Years ago I let this feeling take over my life! I stopped going to work. I only did the basics for my daughter. I woke up each day wishing it was my last day on earth.
Thankfully a councillor and anti depressants helped me though my rock bottom!

This time it’s different. I don’t want to give in. I don’t want to climb into bed even though my brain is screaming that it’s the best option.  I have dreams and goals I want to achieve! And I can’t do that if I avoid people!!!  I know I could feel happy with either option but I know true happiness means pushing forward and making my dreams happen.

Social anxiety is a b*tch! Especially when you are in a relationship business. It’s kinda hard when you’re terrified to talk to people. Like you would rather set your hand on a hot burner than look people in the eye :'(
When you are afraid to contact a friend and make plans as the fear of hearing no seems like it would crush your world!  It’s not a fun place to live!

Luckily I have found something I am passionate about and I truly want to share it with the world! If it wasn’t for my business I would likely be curled up on the couch only staying alive but not really living!  My dream of changing the world will be my saving grace, my husband, my kids, my Norwex family. I know the support is there and I refuse to turn away!

If you know the feeling I’m talking about know that you are not alone. And although it does not feel like it your friends and family are there for you! And if you can’t ask for support out loud write it down, just get it out!!  You deserve true happiness too!

Value Your Time

Do you know how much value your time is worth? Do you use the time you have to it’s full potential? I use to think the value of my time was my hourly wage at work. A raise meant my time was more valuable. Boy was I wrong! Now it has been about 3 1/2 years since I have had an hourly wage put on my time. I feel much better about myself and about how valuable my time truly is.

Do you put the correct value on your time? Do you ever think about how much one simple cost cutting measure can help your bottom line? Check out why you should

How can we help the Kids being Bullied?

I came across a video today that really hit home. At first a played it and didn’t like it. It seems like they were blaming the parents for why the kids are acting badly towards other kids. But I kept it playing as I did other things. As it played I heard an AMAZING message for ALL kids.

If we were to write down this message and have it posted for kids to see. If they read it just once everyday it would be in their minds. It would help them get through the bad days, it would remind them they are stronger than the words that other people say to them.

Please check it out. And if you agree with me at all please share it! I can’t believe this video has such a small number of views! This is something every parent and child should see!

Do you think if everyone believed this message that the world would be a better place? I think if we can stop giving bullies the reactions they seek, we can end bullying! What do you think?
