I am a human who struggles with many things. Anxiety, yup! Chronic pain, uh-huh. Negative Self-talk, you betcha. Migraines, bouts of depression, and a little bit (okay, a lot) of denial mixed in makes for some trying times. I am, however, currently in a state of transformation. I have tried for so long to push and strive, in the pursuit of happiness only for “it” to allude me. I have come to realize, out of crisis, how to stop this cycle…I must be. And so in my attempt to become whole, I write, to create and validate my experiences and interactions with this world. All I know is with each word the anxiety subsides and I get a little closer to being. Being at peace, being present, being here now.
