Walking with a friend tonight, we both looked up and noticed the beautiful evening at just about the same time, 20 minutes into our walk. I exhaled and realized that I’ve allowed anxiety to creep into my life over the last month. It’s been snow balling, causing exhaustion, stress, loss of confidence, and just a generally decreased quality of life.
I consciously decided that today I was not going to allow anxiety to drop by, and it worked. I’m reminding myself that I am fortunate enough to have the ability to choose what my day looks like and how I feel. I also noticed that I did things more slowly, more intentionally. Today I put my shoes on one at a time. Just like my mom. :)
