How I began to take control of my own journey

Updated: Jul 14, 2023

Back in 2019, I found myself in a very dark place with my mental health. Finding a way to out of this was a long journey.


At first, I just wanted someone to come and save me; to take me out of the horrible situation I found myself in and tell me what to do to fix it. I quickly learnt that this wasn't the answer. No one could help me if I wasn't going to do the work.


At the time, I was in a toxic workplace feeling like the world was against me. I felt that these things were happening to me and there was nothing I could do about it. My self-esteem was on the floor. I felt like I was drowning and I couldn't find my way to the surface.


Change your thoughts and you can change your world.

Part of my healing journey involved learning to take responsibility for my own thoughts and reactions. I started to see Ali at Bloom and Blend Holistics for EFT, crystal healing and flower remedies, but a big part of our sessions together involved talking. This is where my mindset started to change, and with Ali's help, I learned that I could set myself free from the actions of other people and take responsibility for my own world and who I wanted to be. I remember seeing this quote around the same time. I bought a print and it is still hanging in my hallway to this day.


These words are a daily reminder that I can take control of my own thoughts and in turn, this will have an impact on the world around me. I have the ability to look at things from a different perspective, choose my actions and my reactions, and therefore change the outcome.


This took along time for me to master, I had to put in the work and I am still learning.


How do you take control of your journey?
