For years I’ve lacked drive, I’ve lacked ambition. OCD firmly took control of me, restricting me from looking to the future. Every day’s a fight, and getting through that day is my biggest challenge until I have to open my eyes and do it all again tomorrow.
I have a story to tell, a story that I feel is important, a story that could potentially help others struggling with OCD, anxiety and depression. Last month I made a brave decision to take on The Speak Up Challenge, this in time will see me stepping out of the dark hole I’ve been stuck in for close to 10 years and on to the big stage.
For once in a long, long time I’m feeling ambitious, I feel positive. The first month on the course has been invaluable. As of next week, Run4YourMind will be a business and come September I’ll be ready to share my message with the world.
Don’t let OCD defeat you, don’t let your mental health define you. Step out of your comfort zone and do something you never believed you could! I’m so ready for my next chapter.
