Sometimes, I find myself getting anxious about nothing. Occasionally it appears and disappears before I even have a chance to really recognize it and other times, it shows up as a tidal wave of anxiety that washes over me and before I know it, I'm hand-wringing and fretting.

I've gotten better in recent times with actually being able to calm myself down, but it doesn't stop that gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach. I am hoping that writing about it will help me take one step closer to stopping it dead in its tracks when it starts.

Right now, I know that I need to rest because my lack of sleep is not helping my cause in the least. And I need to make sure to carve out at least a 30 minute period every day where I'm still, quiet and focused on alleviating some of the noise in my head.
