One At A Time (#297)

I’m trying my best. I use my tools, I speak my mantra, I take my breathes, AND STILL I FEEL ANXIOUS. What a drag.

Despite this, I had a good day and there was still plenty to be grateful for. I have great people around me and the experience to know how quickly change can come.
