“Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.”
Arthur Somers Roche
In one week I will be starting my journey to Burlington, Vermont. I have a lot of anxiety and doubts, anxiety that has effected my writing. My daily writing has suffered as taxes and paperwork took over my life. I couldn't seem to fit writing in when I was faced with journal entries and endless piles of receipts...tomorrow the boxes of paper go to the accountant and I start preparing for my writing/college life hopefully leaving some worry behind. I'm also starting a yoga class tonight, another thing that's been missing from my life, I'm hoping it will lessen the anxiety and bring me more into balance.
Today, think about how fear and anxiety have curtailed your creative side. How do you deal with anxiety without losing the creative spark? My solution today, I'm taking a walk thinking that everything will look clearer when I get back. Now get back to work!
