Mind over matter

The mind is a powerful thing.
What we think determines what we can do.
If we put our minds to it we can overcome many obstacles...
Well guys I've finally built up the courage and gone and got my first tattoo. In a previous post (life, make it happen) I discussed how I've decided to stop being a bore and start living life so this was my next step getting a tattoo. I've wanted to get a tattoo for a while but have been to nervous to even go near the tattoo shop, but of course you only get one life and things I have experienced in my life recently has made me realise you really just need to get on with it! Life is too short.
Anyway blab over, where did my Idea for this tattoo come from? Well, A few months ago I was in a lecture at uni and my heart began to race, my hands started shaking and I felt as though I couldn't breathe. I realised I was having a panic attack and since that day everything has changed. Fears that I had never had before began to grow and everyday felt like and still feels like a challenge. Although I have improved slightly I'm still not where I used to be and simple things such as going shopping or being in a crowded place can be difficult.
So, this is why I decided to get this tattoo, I now know that I will probably struggle with anxiety for the rest of my life but will hopefully in time learn how to keep it under control. If we put our minds to it we can overcome many obstacles. We all have obstacles we wish to overcome and this is one I'm fighting head on...
