I have many mixed emotions but I stop and remind myself that life is constantly cycling through strange fluid cycles of change and that this is all normal; and although it makes me anxious, I’m aware that it does, and I can say, “Hush, anxiety!

this is me letting go of my anxious childhood; rewiring my perspective; challenging my conditioned responses
