So I have a funny example about having your own life experience around something.
Last year when I chose to have a colonoscopy, I started mentioning it to some people & I started getting all these reactions and stories about their experience. Well, I probably should've kept it to myself! LOL.
So after hearing a ton of stories, I did decide to keep it to myself, to support myself through the process best I could, and have MY OWN experience around it.
And you know what? Since I had no stories created around it, the experience was my own and it all went fine without any added drama.
Not only that but I was not anxious or nervous at all, and I have not been put under since five years old when I had my tonsils out. Hence, less stories floating around in the mind, less chance of anxiety and nerves coming...

How deep are you in your mud? 2 feet deep? 1 foot deep?
Maybe 1 foot is out and you have no idea how to get the other foot out.
Maybe you still have 1 big toe dangling in the mud that you just can't seem to pull out.
Maybe you want to make the climb out but something is keeping you stuck in the mud.
Thing is, the journey is worth the effort......it’s the mud that ends up helping us awaken more to our life.
I not only had both feet in, but it felt like I was neck deep in mud after my dad passed away. It was this event that catapulted me deep into the muddy mess.
It's also the event that has made me who I am today.
When I think back to all those years of having anxiety attacks on a daily basis, it makes me realize what an incredible journey it has been.
When I was going through it, it didn't feel that way. It felt like I couldn't breathe......like I was never ever going to...
