Would You Go Back?


Do you have a day, or a moment, or a time, that you'd use a wish on, to go back to?

~unfinished spread.



Though I consider it to be a complete waste of time for me to be feeling panicky and anxiety-ridden, it is there all the same.

*

Some days are like that.

*

It's what I do with them that can make a difference.

*

I've been told by those close to me that I am extremely hard on myself.

I'll try not to be, today.

*

You try, too.

Hi kathy, thanks so much for your sweet comments. I'm working on this one too. being gentle, forgiving, kind, full of grace for myself... so I can be this way with others. It's a whole change in thinking for me. Thank you for your gentle reminders.

yes! the beautiful thing about thinking of these times is that life always offers subsequesnt opportunities for a do-over.

Anxiety finds me far too often... Let's both just breathe and try not to worry so much today. I have realized I cannot control everything and that worry is a result of not being in control sometimes.

Moments in time I
wish to enjoy again...
Hope you feel free from
that anxiety feeling...
It will soon pass
and you will be happy
again...xoxoxoxoxoxo
