Change won't happen until there's a shift...
Yep, the quote above is so true isn't it? Agh! I first heard this quote in the mid-90's when I was seeing my doctor for post natal depression with my first child. Those words really clicked with me and it was like I'd never really considered how my thoughts could inform the present and future - this was a time before self-help genre became a 'thing'.
I think we all can experience this reality in life - doing what we've always done but somehow expecting a different end result. I know, it seems so silly to expect a change but somehow we do and when it doesn't come we can end up feeling sad, angry, confused, frustrated and if we're already feeling depressed, it can just make you feel worse. It's like you're banging your head against a brick wall and there seems no way to break the cycle.
For me, I have various triggers and some are more bothersome than others. Overwhelm, timekeeping, getting distracted and not having enough quiet time, are all potential situations that can trigger unwanted reactions and behaviours for me.
My latest collage is called 'In A Rut' and in the video below, I chat about what helps me and my 'behaviours' whilst piecing together and finishing off my latest collage 6/50 from my #HeadsUp50Project.
