While we are growing, healing, strengthening our brain muscles, and learning to practice self care we may find ourselves a little blue when the lows hit - or when the anxious thoughts come up. We may find ourselves surprised when those moments come when we are actually feeling better or feeling at ease. Mental Girl reminds me - it's ok. I am human. Human beings have emotions - all kinds of emotions and feelings. We also have all kinds of thoughts. The thoughts come in and Mental Girl reminds me I don't have to believe everything those thoughts tell me. I can allow them, accept them, and let them go. Yes, it's hard. Yes, it takes practice. But Mental Girl reminds me, inspires me, and encourages me that this self practice = self love.
