My Week in Review: This One Was a Tough One!

How Tough It Was

This week was a tough one for me. I can’t really explain why because I’m not really sure why. Maybe it was because my hubby went out of town, and we didn’t really talk much, or because I was doing a lot of things that were out of my comfort zone. All I know is that this week was not my best.

My anxiety and depression hit hard this week and all I had were my dogs to help me through it. I held back anxiety attacks, and lots of tears this week. I honestly did not want to cry! Crying always gives me a headache, and makes breathing hard. Let me tell ya something though, I still conquered my week! I got out of bed, got dressed, and went to work every day, I didn’t let my anxiety or depression control me.

So, despite having a hard week, I got through it. There days where I didn’t want to get out of bed, and also days where I wanted to go home early and crawl back into bed and ignore the world, but I didn’t. I powered through my week and made every day worth it. There’s no giving up for me, no matter how hard it may get.

Here are Some Highlights!

I gained lots of follows on social media!

I was asked to do a guest post on another blog! (I’ll keep you updated on when it’s posted)

I got a new book in the mail!

The house we are buying is finally under contract, so, no one else can put an offer on it!

I also got my hair done!

Let me know how your week went! What were some tough things you had to fight through, and what were some highlights?

    Sorry to hear you had a tough week. Those ones are hard to make it through. But like you said, you made it! Yay!

    And you had some positives with social media + a new book arrived. New books make life alright HA!

    I totally understand where you are coming from! I use to really have a hard time when my husband use to travel for his previous employer as it kind of disrupts the flow of the house…even my dog had a hard time as well coping lol. But it looks like things turned around quickly and you were able to see the highlights that occurred during your tough week. Thanks for your transparency and bravery in discussing this topic of anxiety and depression. I think if we all could find the courage to be brave enough to share our stories of our not so finest moments we would all be better off. You are awesome and good job of showing anxiety that you and your happiness are the boss! Stay positive 🙂

    Thank you for sharing. Hang in there. Anxiety and panic attacks are something I struggle with. I got a couple of scary calls about my daughter’ whereabouts while she was on an out of town vacation. I usually would panic and assume the worst but I asked God to help me stay calm and allow me to reason through to more positive images in my mind!

      I’m working on finding my Faith again and the church I attend is starting a new series about the dark side of life and I’m looking forward to it!
