The things you remember… I remember being asked to read a piece of paper that had written on it: ‘happinessisnowhere’ and to say out loud what it said… “Happiness is nowhere.”
“My daughter showed me this… look again at the words… happinessisnowhere and now when I sepearate them… happiness/is/now/here…”
“It’s all about your mindset.”
This was something that I was introduced to in 2010, that I shared on facebook. It stayed with me. So much so that I named this blog after it.
‘By the time I’m 30, I’ll be recovered enough to go to New York.’
I lost years of my life to mental illness, with the hope of one day being able to recover – the one consistent thought being ‘by the time I’m 30…’ By the time I’m 30, I’ll have recovered, faced my fear of flying and be taking a trip to New York City.
The trip of a lifetime, that is going to be filled with so many emotions and so much hope.
I have the motivation and determination to fund this trip myself, however, there are many barriers in front of me.
Every little helps.
Money has never been something that came to me, it is not something I have ever had a lot of access to and I have always been against the idea of doing this – but here we are. I am not expectant this will help or happen, however, with my finances as they are, my reliance is on my overdraft.
Desperate times call for desperate measures…
Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud”.
