  • Understanding that everything (tasks, conversations, events) is much harder than it once was.
  • Shifting my verbiage from negative self-talk into positive self-talk and carrying it with me throughout the day.
  • Flooding-Be aware of how it affects you.
  • Game changer-Celebrating small wins, or what might seem like an insignificant win.
  • It takes constant energy and effort to give yourself grace as you heal.
