The In and Out Journey of Anxiety

In the summer heat, I’m sitting here sipping my iced coffee and try to stop my racing thoughts. This week anxiety crept back in for a visit, and I never know how long it might last. I have been writing to combat it and distract from my intrusive thoughts, though I still have to tackle the larger projects once I’m feeling well prepared to do so. Every day, I’m fighting my best to maintain my strength, however I am also trying to remind myself that having days in which panic attacks may occur or my irrational fears override my trust is more than okay. I will never be a hundred percent better. Life will happen. But I always have the option of getting back up and looking towards those new horizons. Anxiety won’t win out, not when fulfilling my purpose is more important. I know the genuine, thriving, creative soul that is me is still in there somewhere, and I’ll patiently wait for her to remember just how brave she is capable of being.
