My clothing rail broke, which was actually a good opportunity as I was able to be very strict about going through my clothes, as I now only have room for half of those I had before!
So half of my clothes are in a bag ready to be washed and go on Ebay :) One sofa to go on Freecycle too – when the snow stops!
Well I’ve been on the radio twice and am now running workshops. I never thought that would be possible after my public speaking attempt in March 2012, after which I spent 3 days in bed thinking “Who the hell do you think you are?!”
I worked through my old fears, that had been ingrained since childhood, using NLP techniques, and kept in mind my goals and what the pont of them is. I feel I am much better at this now!
While I would have loved to have finished my novel, other books were more important. I published ‘The Recovery formula’ in September 2012 and ‘The Happy Addict’ will be published in 2013. They are both books about addiction recovery and helping others to recover.
I am thrilled to have completed them both and have had wonderful feedback.
Next the novel, lol! (Another 5 years later…)
I am now in very, very strong recovery :) I have set up a website with some free resources for recovery: http://www.smyls.co.uk
I am also writing two books to help others stay sober and reach recovery.
Well I went to an mma class last night – very proud as I went all on my ownsome, and I can be a pussy about these things.
I am happy to say I loved it! I’ll definitely be going back :)
After a bit of soul-searching, I realised just why this goal has become important to me. I always thought I wanted to do it for superficial reasons, but they actually go a lot deeper. When I realised that, I got my act together, did the necessary research and booked a trial lesson in mixed martial arts that I will be going to tomorrow. Just gotta dust off the shorts now. Wish me luck!
Eating low carb and eating good real food – clean eating
Regular walking, weights and stretch band resistance training
Yay! I have put 4 lots of stuff on ebay and made nearly £150. Feels good. Gotta keep doing this until I have got rid of everything that is not being used but taking up space!
Been here a year now – very very happy :)
I was never very good at walking in high heels anyway – used to wear platforms to get the extra height. But after wearing trainers for a year after breaking my ankle in 3 places (ouch!) I am determined to get confident on them!
I am going to start by just wearing them around the house when doing the hoovering etc :)
So glad that you’re all trying to work on the same thing as me – didn’t think anyone else would be!
I used to have Social Anxiety Disorder too until I got treated with NLP and hypnotherapy. However, this is one remainder from those scared days and I don’t even know why!
I have no issues talking to people face to face, but I don’t even like picking up the phone to friends and I hate making calls at work.
I think it might be 2 things – maybe knowing it is not as easy to say ‘no’ to things (thinking up excuses etc without being able to show body language). Also I sometimes think I’ll be disturbing people (even if I might be phoning for their own benefit).
Argh, I don’t get it but I need to work on it now as it is starting to effect my work. Would love to share what works with you guys. Good luck all – let’s get over this!
