717 to go!

Only 14 cranes today. They had their photo shoot in our hallway that we have just finished painting. We still need to get new carpet but we are getting there. Next stop is the lounge room – heaven help us! #anorchidsview #1000papercranes 

Refreshing!

Another beautiful day! Just got back from a morning swim. I’m grateful to be able to swim in such a beautiful location. The water was so clear today. #freshie #anorchidsview #grateful💖 

Cross fit 

Today I went to my first group session of Cross Fit. This may sound like a small feat but for me it is a huge milestone. A year ago I suffered from anxiety attacks when faced with a new activity, crowds, unfamiliar places, and meeting new people. Sometimes my anxiety was triggered with just the thought of phoning to book an appointment – let alone turning up to the appointment. Two weeks ago I signed up. I had my first three 1:1 sessions at a new place with a new coach. Today I attended my first class. I am so proud of how far I have come and so grateful for the support that my friends and family have shown. I wanted to share my experience with you all because it is important to never judge someone. Try to put yourself in their shoes and see how much effort they are putting in. My journey has been rough and the hardest part of it so far has not been the exercise – it’s been the courage to start. Anxiety is not something to take lightly – it can impact upon every aspect of a person’s life. #anorchidsview #grateful💖
