Falling To Wonderland

“Alice had to fall down a rabbit hole to get to wonderland”-Unknown.

This blog is about self-discovery and the process of finding my own version of Wonderland.

Welcome to Falling To Wonderland! 

Life hasn’t always been smooth sailing for me- has it really been smooth sailing for anyone?? From the time I was 16 until about 3 years into college,  I was taking anxiety medication as well as heavy anti-depressants and not making great life choices.  After a series of poor decisions, I was evicted out of my apartment at the age of 19. I dropped out of university and moved back home and in with my parents to work part-time at a retail store.

I decided that enough was enough, and it was time to start making progress towards my future. Within six months of giving up weed, cigarettes and reckless behavior I felt like a completely different person. Anxiety medicine had always left me feeling like a zombie but I had allowed it because it made me numb to reality, but now I was ready to face reality head-on! I decided I was in a safe mental and physical state to stop the medicine.

Fast forward to today… I have started to put my life back together. I am back in a university and working full-time, but now I am ready to work on the “me” part. I don’t always like who I am, and I’m not okay with that.

I believe that self-love is the key ingredient to happiness, and I have been falling short.

There is a quote that says “In order to get to Wonderland, Alice had to fall down a rabbit hole.” This is me finding my own version of Wonderland. I don’t know what wonderland will look like, but at least I have found my rabbit hole.

Wish me luck!
