A friend once said to me that she remembered that I “wasn’t good at anything” when we were kids. This week I talk about what’s changed over the years.
I love writing, always have. Unfortunately I don’t write as often as I should. I’ve found that writing can be a magical, therapeutic process. I work out a lot of things with a keyboard.
It’s never been like me to call on a higher power. The closest I ever came was in the fifth grade when I shouted up at the sky angrily, “If you are real, now would be a GREAT TIME to do something!” I wanted to believe but it all felt like a fairy tale to me. For many years I was very conflicted over this, but as I grew up the feelings faded.
I am a creature of habit. I love my little rituals and routines. I am very aware of this and take advantage of my ability to form habits.
I consider myself a mostly competent driver nowadays, but this wasn’t always the case. In fact, learning to drive was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I needed my independence as a teenager.
I’ve never lived in a city where not having a car works. Even now, my job is several towns away from where I live. Learning to drive was the only way I could see myself getting the things I wanted – so I did it.
I had a bad habit of rear-ending people and backing-up into things when I first started to drive. My mother worried about me anytime I was out on the road (for good reason).
Now, at the age of 30, my main problem is “curb-checks”. Still a work in progress but better than I was yesterday.
I’ve got an exciting update! I read each and every comment, email, and question. However, don’t always have time to respond back to them all. To make things more efficient, I’m going to start answering your questions in my videos!
Anxiety is on the rise globally. Many people, including some anxiety sufferers, may not know what anxiety is or how to deal with it.
It’s time we swallow our pride and start having these discussions. We need to talk about mental health.
