Some days...

Some days are challenging ones. I got myself two of them back-to-back this week.

Fear and worry: they are what we make of it. It is easy to tell others that it will all be okay, but even harder to tell that to yourself. I know life is a journey and that which doesn't kill us makes us stronger and all of that, but there are times when life just doesn't seem fair. But the thing with fear and worry is, neither if them breathes or has a heartbeat. They are inanimate and are only fueled by our own thoughts and emotions.
