Qi gong healing course - Part 3

Today was part 3 of my qi gong healing course and it's been quite a journey. I started learning qi gong for more selfish reasons ie to try heal myself and hopefully get rid of my anxiety issues. Who would've thought that I'll be healing other people.

I've also been privileged to get to know such a compassionate group of people who are so passionate about healing. They have made people's lives a little bit better just through the touch of their hands. It's true, there is no greater feeling than having helped someone, no matter how little.

This course has changed the way I think and made me re-assess my goals in life. I've always wanted to contribute to society in some way, and now I've found the ideal way of doing it. Some people are able to contribute money, skills, time etc. Well, I am extremely grateful to have been shown how to heal. Maybe in my own little way I'll be able to touch people's lives in a positive way.

We don't need to change the world to make a difference, we just need to do our part.

So Unfit!

Just came back from my belly dancing class and I'm a little dizzy and achy. Why? Because I've been too tired to exercise. With my son getting HFMD and hubby feeling a little ill, I haven't been getting a good nights sleep. Oh yeah, and I've got piles which is a mild annoyance to say the least.

But it was good to get my blood pumping again. And it's nice to spend some time just doing something I like. I just want to get away sometimes. Just to relax and maybe get some solid restorative sleep! My family are the love of my life and I'd do anything for them, but I think I need some time away. I don't need a long holiday, a night at a resort or hotel would be perfect. Ideally some place with really nice beds. Going to make it happen!

It's a Choice

It's a choice, to get out of bed every morning, to be happy, to be healthy, to appreciate life. I still go through bouts of anxiety and depression sometimes, and I make the choice to be happy every single day, to enjoy my family, my friends, my life. The thing with anxiety and depression is that if you allow it to get a grip on you, it'll bring you further and further down. So, God willing, I will be happy every single day of my life. I can't 'depend' on anyone to make me happy. My happiness is my own responsibility.

I know some people will think "What is she going on about?". Well, only people who have gone through anxiety and depression will understand how difficult it is to function without being fearful and/or unhappy. I see it as a period of change in my life, a signal that my life can't go on the way it has. It's time to make positive changes, it's not easy but, this too shall pass, and I will overcome my anxiety and depression.
