Out of my Hands

Obsessive thoughts that take over my mind

Unwelcome waves of anxiety

Tense shoulders

Optimism is a thing… right?

Forgetting to breathe

Mourning the loss of what hasn’t yet come

Yearning for answers not in my control

Hesitating to make decisions

Active imagination

Neglecting other priorities

Doubting myself and others

Suffocating with worry

Slice of LIfe

Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You used only what was needed for the reader to grasp the condition of your heart and mind. Whatever it is that has hold of you, let it go. Give it to God, fully. Beautifully, raw piece!


  2. I really feel, “Mourning the loss of what hasn’t yet come”. I think about one specific “something” every single day and it hasn’t even happened yet. Sometimes it is exhausting.

    I love this! Thank you for saying words I couldn’t.


  3. Thank you for your transparency.
    Thank you for sharing your soul.
    Thank you for the visual reminder to relax my shoulders, unclench my jaw, and breath. Because before I came to comment, I closed my eyes and willed myself to relax.
    Thank you.
