Pondering Life

As I walk along my feet freely wander as my mind seems to run and ponder reflecting on my life’s unexpected gifts affecting my whole reality to severely shift As I walk along each day, I try to stay humble But sometimes my words blurt out and fumble Feeling grateful and contentment most days But anxiety still destroys my psyche in ways Feelings of fear, worry and doubtfulness Slowly chips away my joy and happiness Sometimes it’s ferocious fear and very fast Luckily those dark days have mostly passed Today as I walk along and smell the spring air I reflect on my struggles and all I have had to bear Feeling more fortunate but remaining humble No longer allowing my anxiety to make me crumble

Times are when we feel despondent little realizing there are people who feel worse than we do. I pray for them. Hugs.

You have conquered a lot, it seems. Anxiety is not an easy thing to conquer and can come about often. Well written Tania :)
