I’ve always wanted to be the sort of person you could describe
During times of crisis
As able to face tough stuff
But some days, I am here to tell you
I am flinching.
I definitely definitely definitely definitely
p.s. but then, I go for a walk. Or sing, write, do worthwhile work, see friends, Be.Here.Now., do something for somebody (“service”) … & then I am okay again. (Letting go of fear == very very important if one wishes to live a contented &/or even joyful life!! :) :) )
‘Quote of the day’ with this post: “Don't try to be such a perfect girl, darling. Do the best you can without too much anxiety or strain.” - Jesse Barnard (quoted in my increasingly dog-eared, but still faithfully used Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much, a gift many years ago now from a daughter who thought I did “too much,” I guess.) *** I love this quotation!!!!!
