"My Personal Holiday"

Matthew 14:27

But Jesus immediately said to them, “Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.”

Greetings... Coming off a week of being celebrated as well as celebrating myself, I learned a few things about myself & fear! Oh yeah.... Celebrated my 43rd personal Holiday!!!! 😃😃😃 One of my favorite things to do for myself is to retreat and reflect on my previous year. Just take a full day or two or three or however many it takes to love on ME!!! This year has been 1 filled with more lows than highs yet I still heard the Holy Spirit to say... "Study scriptures on fear so you can begin to understand your lows and begin to reach your highs!!!!" Then came Matthew 14:27

But Jesus immediately said to them, “Take courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.”

Soooooo.... Not only did I find out I am suffering from P.T.S.D lemme gon & copy & paste that full Wikipedia definition - Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, warfare, traffic collisions, or other threats on a person's life. Symptoms may include disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events, mental or physical distress to trauma-related cues, attempts to avoid trauma-related cues, alterations in how a person thinks and feels, and an increase in the fight-or-flight response. These symptoms last for more than a month after the event. A person with PTSD is at a higher risk for suicide and intentional self-harm.

YUP... THAT'S ALL ME RIGHT THERE!!!! But in order to heal and find my own peace... I have to accept it and grow thru it!!! Soooooooo... In that moment I decided to add other fears to rest... I threw on my $2.99 two piece bikini from America's Thrift Store and learned how to tread water in 7ft!!!
