I say these things to myself whenever I feel that anxiety bug creeping through my veins. It’s not a safe world, but I can make my world safe by speaking out, cherishing the silence, choosing happiness, choosing not to worry about what I can’t fix, and living each day to its fullest.
I will never take for granted friendships, family, friendly strangers, frank discussions, honesty, compromise and laughter. I will continue to fall in love with reckless abandon and try to learn from the bruises and scars when it doesn’t fly. I will dip my toes into more oceans, sit my butt on more bar stools around the world, push myself to go on more adventures, and give back to the universe everything it has given to me.
Deep is good, unless you’re in a pool with sharks.
