It’s been a minute, but in true Anxiety Mom fashion, I’m later then I’d like.
I got a new camera! The Canon PowerShot s530 HS
• Budget friendly
• Takes nice shots
•What do I know I’m new at this…
Taken using my Canon Powershot💥
I accept photography tips💖, this is something I’ve always wanted to pursue. I am so excited to learn. Even more excited that Marc was willing to invest in my happiness!
On to the challenge…
maybe my name should be squirreled Anxiety Mom Challenge.
Saying YES right away to anything, can be hard. I feel like a lot of my challenges are based around saying YES. If your anything like me it can be hard to agree, without first thinking no, oh err maybe next time.
I was listening to brain candy podcast… sometimes I feel like they just speak truth to my thoughts.
Sarah Rice was explaining that our brains are basically hardwired to do what is comfortable.
Even if what is comfortable isn’t the best option. I think Anxiety can really enhance that. You get this comfort level and run to stay where you feel comforted the most.
Today’s challenge is about saying YES, to your kiddo(s).
I have been trying to be more mindful lately, for example, A was getting out of school sun☀️ shining away. It was a beautiful day… finally after a long winter.
She so excitedly… asked if we could go to the playground to play. Hesitantly, I agreed.
We spent roughly 20 minutes there and let me just say there were More pros then cons!
•Both children were happy and more worn out then before.
• Little A could not stop thanking me for taking her and saying yes to going in the first place. (ugh am I that bad.)
• We almost completely beat the going home “traffic“. Really, it isn’t bad but, very little cars going home 👍🏻
I let my anxiety run my life sometimes and said no
So say I CHALLENGE you to say YES to one thing, just 1. That you normally might not do, or would put off saying yes.
Even if it’s a short activity, just say YES and love the gratitude you feel back from it. Anxiety is hard… we can challenge ourselves as parents together!
