Risk Your Significance and Live a Full Life

Risk Your Significance and Live a Full Life

I came across a really cool quote a few weeks back,

“I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit.”
-Dawna Markova

Anxiety Effecting Everyday Lives During Recession

Anxiety Effecting Everyday Lives During Recession

I saw an article on CNN today about how Walmart’s sales at U.S. stores fell 1.4% from the same period last year. When customers are living paycheck to paycheck more than ever before, the sales aren’t there because “customers can’t afford the gas to get to the stores and that they’re increasingly using food stamps when they get there.” It’s no secret we are living in difficult times. It’s a no brainer that anxiety levels in the country must be rising. It made me wonder how much.

My Overwhelming To-Do List

This overwhelming to-do list makes me focus on everything I am not doing. But when I notice what I do accomplish, it puts life back into perspective.

My Thoughts on “Recovering” from Social Anxiety

My Thoughts on “Recovering” from Social Anxiety

Everyone reading this is probably looking for a way to be cured from anxiety. I have found that when I focus on words such as “cure” and “recovery,” it tends to lead to disappointments. If I am doing really well, I may feel that I am close to recovery. Then if I get hit with a setback, I am really upset because I thought I was doing better.

Instead, I focus on finding the hidden lessons within the setback and use it to move forward. My philosophy is to treat anxiety as if you may have it the rest of your life. If you do this, you can learn ways to reduce and manage the anxiety symptoms so that you can still live a happy fulfilling life.
