Last Friday night I went to a benefit concert. The kid in the photo, Marlon Yasir, from Guatemala needs 2 more surgeries to be able to stregthen his legs. His dream is to run and play soccer. Made me think of the times in my life when I was bedridden. Not fun to realize that your legs wont do what you want them to.
I was part of the VIP group, we were given a yellow ribbon tied around our wrist. As Reiki Master, I work with colors and energy. For me yellow is happiness, clear mind, the clearing of the path, friendships. So I was happy with that color. I'm still wearing it.
I'm reminded everytime I look at it that I need to take my thoughts to a happy place. If you have been following me, you know that I suffer from anxiety and depression, often I call on friends to help me walk through the steps my anxiety. On Saturday, an episode of anxiety kicked in, I was looking for my phone to call someone, then I saw the ribbon on my wrist.
I took a couple of deep breaths and closed my eyes, sat in front of a fan and let the air hit my face. About 5 minutes there, it seemed longer. But I got through it.
Thank you, everyone that follows my post. I'll keep you updated! :)
