Day 6 of Blogtember brings us to this prompt: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.
|Where I felt most at home|
One day, maybe even the day this picture was taken, I was sitting alone on bow watch and I realized that I needed to just be happy. I had an epiphany that happiness wasn’t something you achieve, it’s a choice you make daily.
Some back story on me which will help you understand this: I was a fairly negative person, and I still struggle with anxiety. I previously was on medication for my anxiety, but I made the decision that at 19 I didn’t want to be medicated, I wanted to learn to control the problem. I manage very well most days. Being “happy” was not a way that people would describe me, and it’s not something that I felt very often at all. I was fairly ungrateful and had a serious chip on my shoulder. I was angry at so many people for so many things and it was controlling my life. I let myself play the part of the victim. (Writing that out sounds pretty terrible, huh?)
