The power of language

This week I met a kind, well spoken man who taught me how changing the word struggle to experience can morph your perspective. I struggle with anxiety becomes I experience anxiety. No longer do I have to fight and wrestle with anxiety. I can feel it. I can observe it. I can identify it. I can learn from it. When my anxiety is strong, it does not mean I am weak.

It's the experiences in life that make us who we are! Soak them in and be the change we want to be! Positive thinking!
