Let's talk

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Today is Bell Let's Talk day in Canada.
It's a day to spread awareness of mental illness in our country, and get rid of the stigma that is attached. I think it's so important to share the good AND the bad that happens in our lives, because everyone goes through a time in their life where they need to know they are not alone. 

I recently came across this post that really spoke to me, and I wanted to share some quotes with you.

A new year is upon us, a new start, a renewal of all that we strive to be. 
Somehow, through determination and unyielding belief, I accomplished more in this past year than I have in any year. And yet, this past year was trying, burdensome, and challenging beyond belief.
There were times this past year when the going got so tough that I found it hard to see the light.  And just as the mounting uncertainty and fear would start to overwhelm me, an unexpected window would open and light would beam in from a most surprising source, and all would make sense once again.  But that uncertainty and fear was real, very real, and immensely challenging.  This past year was also filled with a tremendous amount of good- good opportunities, good times, and good people.  Sometimes, the only way I managed to keep on the sunny side of the street was by keeping grateful, for the good and the bad, and by accepting the help and support of the people around me.
I step into this new year with a clearer focus of what I want my life to look like, and a deeper understanding of what I need my life to feel like.  I want to focus on two things: purposefully directing my attention and focus onto what I want to manifest and grow, and putting more time, effort, and love into my relationships.  I aim to ultimately get to a place where I can naturally focus all of my attention and thoughts on the good around me, stop worrying, and stop wasting any effort on that which I cannot control.  I know this is easier said than done, and I want to work on it one day at a time. - Belle

Life can be challenging for everyone, and we need the strength and support from those around us to get through these times. Today is about opening up those windows for people who cannot see the light, and letting them know that they are not alone in their pain. Be a source of strength for someone who may not now where to turn.
