During the fist few month of growing from depression, I was so blessed to be guided towards Mindfulness. It was something that had been introduced to me in a book. Couple of weeks later, I met someone ‘randomly’ at a works event, whom after a very brief chat told me , if I got the chance to do an 8 weeks mindfulness course, I should! The sign was clear, I got home and booked myself on the Cardiff course with Vicki Worsley.
I loved everything about the course, from meeting like minded individuals, group discussions, group meditation and most of all knowing that I wasn’t alone, everyone has their challenges.
I took so much learning from the course, my awareness of others and myself grew. I became compassionate towards myself and others. It helped me to respond to challenges instead of reacting. It taught me to keep the small issues small and kept me in touch with what really matters.
People question how I keep a positive attitude, it is because I put the work in and self care is my priority. Truth is, as much as people care for you, you are the only one that can change your life.
Take control, take back the power, take responsibility.
Here’s an interview with my amazing teacher, Vicki Worsley, explaining all about Mindfulness and it’s benefits.
