“A Journey Of a Thousand Miles Begins With a Single Step” – Lao Tzu

journey

Although this quote about is a ‘travel quote,’ I think it works so well for those of us journeying (get it?!) with mental health issues.

Over the summer, I took the tiny step to simply talk to my doctor about an anxiety clinic I had heard about from someone from my church.

And that turned into a referral to the clinic, a consultation, two months of CBT, psychiatrist check-ups, which helped give me the courage to go through with other medical tests I needed to get done.

I never thought that step would actually lead to anything. I’ve seen so many doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and specialists over the years. Nothing changed. But this time, it did lead to something – my own journey of a thousand miles.

I am feeling really encouraged lately.

That’s a new one for me.
