Folks in (or not in) recovery, this quote makes a lot of sense. Sometimes we can be numb for a year or a decade, when we get focused again, we can feel a tremendous anxiety. That’s ok, all that means is you’re perfectly normal and feeling the way you should. When one is freed of chains, whether they be chemical, physical, environmental, or other, it can be a scary thing – but it is also an exciting thing, a new journey.

Just breathe, calm your mind, think of that person, place or thing which makes you happy, smile, walk it off and kick some ass. Just wanted to share this, anxiety was paralyzing for me for a while, but I decided to make it my bitch rather than to be it’s. #makeyourownpath
