In the darkness of early morning I woke up in a panic — my stomach churning, mind burning with fear. I feared for work, for people I love, for future, and more. I got out of bed for a few minutes, took some deep breaths and then crawled back in trying my best to remind myself that I only have control over the moment. And as far as I could see as I looked up at the ceiling, the sky wasn’t falling. There was just the early AM serenity that includes a random gusts of wind, the soft chirps of waking birds and the light hum of the world.

No matter how hard I try to bury them, worries pop up — and I have to remind myself to breathe again and have faith that the future will unwind like the most beautiful of tales.

My attempt at being bold is trying at times – living as a human being is an interesting mix of highs and lows, beauty and not so beautiful, serenity and chaos.

Have fears today? Join the club and then just breathe — believe — and let it all unfold as it will. In the end things seem to work out ;-)
