For the purpose of this post we are going to call my brain Sally. Sally meet my blog! Blog meet Sally! [just humour me please].
Over the past few years we have sure been on a bit of a journey together. There have been so many times I’ve hated you, and yet, not matter how horrible you are to me, or I am to you, we always seem to manage to get out the other side and be friends again. Thanks for that.
Often, I like to think, no matter what you decide to challenge me with, that you only give it to me because you have confidence that either you know it will teach me so much, or, and perhaps both, you know I have the strength to get through it [a bit like a teachers prerogative].
…let’s talk about our little mutual friend Anxi…
Let’s talk about our little mutual friend Anxi [or to others who might know them as Anxiety], you and Anxi have certainly made my life a whole lot more difficult, and sometimes, you have won. But that’s ok, you win some you loose some, and I am sorry to say it Sally and Anxi, but I hope you like loosing because I have been doing a hell of a lot of winning recently! Despite your constant put downs, and snide comments, laughing at me as I say I can’t do it, I HAVE DONE IT SALLY! I have done so many things! I would like to ask you REALLY nicely to break up with Anxi, I know it’s hard, but I really think it’s for the best.
Before I end this letter, I would also like to thank you for your everlasting strength. You’ve got me through when times have been ever so tough, and you’ve given me that adrenaline to get through some really scary times. I know it’s not been easy for you either, and Sally, I know sometimes you have felt like giving up and felt like the world would be a better place without you, but it really wouldn’t! I think you know that now, but just know, if you ever feel like that again. It’s ok! It’s really ok, just take a deep breath, read this post and trust you can get through it.
Which brings us to today, Sally, I want you to know that it makes me SO happy to know how happy you are. Your positive thoughts and new found ambition is such a nice feeling to have return. Keep it up and never give up. Give it your best shot and you’ll never know where it might take you. Thanks Sally. Thanks for being you.
YOU DA BEST SALLY!
