The photos in this post make me realize how far I’ve come with photography this year! I’m really trying hard to create beautiful images for you and improve my photography, and I think it is starting to pay off. I so want to go edit that chia jam photo so that the white table is well…white, instead of that yellow/grey hue.  I will leave it and celebrate improvement over the past year! Oh, and this jam?

Severe Anxiety Symptoms

As I reread these posts on anxiety, I feel like they just might be some of the most important ones I have written. As much as I wish anxiety was not part of my story, reading comments and remembering the emails I get in response make it worth it. Sharing a bit of my very personal journal and journey has brought so many of you to share yours with me, and that makes it all worth it. I received an email from a teenage reader on Christmas night that shared her own anxiety story and thanked me for this post. Yes, it is worth it.
