I’m Lucy Smith, I’m part of a very close family and love to travel and explore new places. When I was 11 I started playing Bowls and have done ever since. I wasn’t very academic in school and didn’t find it very enjoyable as I struggled with social skills. I had confidence and belief issues and had suffered with anxiety, holding me back from doing anything alone including driving or shopping. This began to have a negative impact on my life.
The day came where I had a severe panic attack in a supermarket after my sister had left me alone. That was the day that I knew something was wrong and I had to get professional help as I didn’t know how to change how I was feeling. I was referred to a counsellor that I started seeing once a week, she diagnosed me with severe anxiety and depression and recommended a personal development book on Mindfulness. I found the book very overwhelming in the current state I was in so I never read it. Fortunately, it did make me interested in personal development and I began to do my own research.
So I started reading, listening to positive audios, meditating, visualising and being grateful. Before I knew it I had a variety of personal development habits that were helping me to manage my anxiety and depression. I created a morning routine of them all and committed the first hour of every day to this morning routine. This is something I have consistently stuck with ever since.
Personal development has helped me to:
- Manage anxiety and depression
- Build confidence
- Improve self-love
- Overcome fears
- Feel happier
- Improve relationships
Once I had completely transformed my mindset and life I knew that it was my purpose in life to help other women with the same struggles. I didn’t know who to turn to when I was at my lowest and it is my passion to become the person you turn to when you need someone most.
I hope the blogs, free support and services will add value to your life and the tools and techniques that have helped me through anxiety, confidence, self-belief issues and much more will help you too.
As I continued on my personal development journey, my sister, Katy also saw transformational changes in her life, particularly with her confidence. We were discussing our beliefs as children and how important mindset is from a young age and we decided that together we would start Cheerful Children and create a resource library for schools and parents to support children in all areas of their mindset including confidence, growth mindset, emotions and feelings using personal development.
