That Familiar Feeling

Tightness in my chest.

A sinking feeling in my stomach.

Racing mind.

Total fatigue.

Anxiety has hit me…again

I am no stranger to anxiety. It happens way too often. Some days are better than others. Today is not one of those better days. There are any number of reasons why today is not better.

Too many things on my plate.

Sitting in a windowless office on a beautiful sunny day.

Being unprepared for class tomorrow.

Missing actually teaching and sharing my love of books.

Feeling stuck.

Feeling like I am not the person I want to be…yet.

The list could go on and on. Tomorrow will be better. I can do this.

  1. To quote a small human I had the pleasure of teaching a few years ago….after a particularly trying day…tomorrow will be better.



  2. The short, choppy sentences on either side of the paragraph remind me of a seesaw-each side waiting for its turn to rise. Your turn is coming!!
