Welcome to my blog!
It has been on my heart for some time to start a blog and I have finally taken the plunge. I crave an outlet where I can express myself freely and openly while on this journey to self love and inner peace. This quest of mine has just begun and I am both nervous and excited to become more acquainted with myself. Getting to know myself may sound strange, and one might think that after 28 years, I’d know Kristan in and out. On the contrary, I actually feel very lost.
The older I get, the more I realize that all I want in this life is to have peace in my mind and heart. Right now, my head feels so cluttered and my body feels tense, tired and stressed. I have been on a roller coaster battle with anxiety and depression for the last five years. I have had many highs and lows, but I am ready to reach a steady flow of balance where I can truly feel at peace deep down to my core.
I know this this journey will involve a lot of letting go and learning to be more present and mindful. If you are someone who suffers from anxiety, then you can understand that this is a tall order. But I am a woman on a mission who is determined to get my mind and body in tune with one another. I have come to understand that the two are very much interconnected. I am nothing without my health, so it is so important to achieve optimal mental and physical health so that I can be the best version of myself, and live my life to the fullest.
As far as what this blog will entail, I will be sharing with you the steps I take to gain further understanding of myself and how to reach inner peace. Lately, I have been experimenting with different practices and hobbies to help calm my mind. Whatever I find that works (or doesn’t work) for me, I want to share with whomever reads this blog in hopes I can help anyone who may be on a similar journey. Along the way, I will share different things about myself and what I love. I wish I could be more detailed, but let’s just go with the flow and see where this goes. (See, I’m already more easy going. LOL),
Thank you for being here and taking this ride with me. Remember- “You, yourself, as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection”. Buddha
