World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day

We all need to take breaks. No matter how far you are on your mental health journey, you will need to take time to rest. And that is totally okay. It is part of being human.

I have spent the majority of 2023 just doing. I stepped into this new year with so many dreams and goals. I worked towards and even launched this brand. I created connections with people to start a private practice. I even took my fitness goals to the next level.

But with all this work came unrealistic expectations that I forced upon myself. I believed that it would all pay off the second I launched everything. However, as the saying goes, if it were easy, everyone would do it.

Entrepreneurship is not easy. But it also doesn’t HAVE to be hard. I took a couple months off to go inward and just be guided with what direction I take my businesses. I am finally taking the steps towards launching my private practice, and I am finding joy again in Sherni Speaks, LLC.

I share all of this as encouragement to those who have set out on a journey and have placed huge expectations for themselves. It is okay to step out on faith and have things not go as planned. It is okay to step back and to go back to the drawing board. It is okay to completely pivot if you need to.

The best thing about this journey (mental health, entrepreneurship, or just life) is that you cannot mess it up no matter how hard you try. Every closed door leads to a hundred more opportunities that you never could have even imagined were available for you.

The biggest lesson that I have learned from the last two months is to just flow and to be guided. I will know exactly what I need to do and when to do it. I literally just need to show up as me and let everything work itself out.

We live in a world that is always emphasizing and preaching to do things. I hope this post allows you consider that you just need to be. We are all human beings, not human doings after all.

So as you reflect on this World Mental Health Day, I hope you give yourself the love and kindness that you have been seeking.

You are loved. You are cared for. You are so needed.

Another post with me just rambling all of my thoughts. I hope it makes some sense.

With Love,

Dr. Kaler
