Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
Wow! It has been a long while since I wrote or read those words. Over the past six months, my world had gone a bit off the rails. Coping with loss, moving, learning that I truly cannot do everything for everyone. It has been an eye opening six months. It has also shown me what it is I truly want to do with my life.
I have fought so hard over the past few months to get back to me. I’m sure most of you know what it is like to give so freely of yourself to others and how much you focus on everyone else that you forget that you are not a robot. I had gotten to a point in my life that I was so wrapped up in everything else, that I literally lost my mind. I had gotten to the point that I would forget the most simple of things. I had forgotten to pay the car payment one month. To show how insanely early in the month I usually pay, the car dealership called the day the payment was due. I was so embarrassed and so upset with myself, it was in that moment I realized things had to change.
I started writing everything down. I began avoiding the people that overwhelmingly ask more of me than I can give. I even started meditating more. It began helping but not as much as getting in that craft room…yes, I finally have a room dedicated to crafting…and creating something. My creativity and my desire to craft had seriously and painfully been put on hold to accommodate all of the other things I had roped myself into.
Mental health is a real thing. It is something that we all should pay attention to for ourselves. So much of my life had been focused on other things, that I neglected my mental health. I paid for that mistake dearly. I would find myself crying for no reason in the shower, becoming angry randomly over absolutely nothing, and the self hatred set in so horribly my thoughts were tormenting. I had to unplug, pull myself away from triggers, and put my mind in a better place. I had to call on God to help me, because there was no way I would be able to help myself without Him. He answered my prayers. He showed me that I could get through it all and he reminded that my dream is this website and building a business here. I am renewed and refocused, and completely committed.
Thank you so much for reading today’s post, I am aware that it isn’t quite like other posts on this site. I do plan on posting more life oriented posts and documenting my journey to better mental health. I hope you join me as well and we can help each other. Feel free to give this a like, comment, and share, I would certainly appreciate it!
