“It’s Not About the Destination, It’s About the Journey”
Hello All and Welcome to Me On Focus <3
I’m Lucy and currently, I’m living in the UK, originally I’m from Italy.
I’m a former manager I used to work in electronic companies around the world in industries that varied from automotive, Smart Homes technology, my last experience was in Aerospace.
On July 4th, 2017 I had a panic attack and soon I have been diagnosed with Anxiety with Depression. For several months I couldn’t find the strength to get out of bed when I finally decided to get out of bed and stay in the living room it was a great victory. For several months I wasn’t able to read and get out of the house. My life changed! I became a closed person that couldn’t speak with anybody.
One day I decided to open my Kindle to see if I could be motivated to start reading a book and scrolling through old purchases I found a book that I’ve read year before called “Crochet Saved My Life” I didn’t read the book, instead I searched for my hooks and threads and started to crochet.
Crochet helped me to stop thinking… Usually, when a person has depression she/he cannot think and if they think the thoughts are all messy and it seems like you are thinking about million things at the same time… Crochet helped me to think only about the work I was doing and about the colours…
Slowly I calmed myself to a point where finally I was able to make a decision about returning or not to work. I decided not to. I decided that my health was more important than a job and that I was gonna take limitless time off from corporate life.
In 4 months I was able to finally read a magazine without starting shaking… Also, I was finally able to go outside the house with my husband for short coffees.
Six months after my panic attack I was finally reading books, writing and going out for short periods of time.
At this moment I’m aware that I’m not completely free from depression but I know that I can control it.
Now I can finally make plans and now I can finally see a bright future ahead of me.
I decided to change my profession and to follow what were my real dreams, I’m currently studying psychology.
I am a:
Trying to become Vegan…
Trying to stop the worst habit ever… Smoke!
I’m married to the most wonderful man, which I like to call “My Hungarian Prince”.
A true believer of positivity and law of attraction.
We can achieve whatever we want, we just need to focus and believe…
A mantra lover
