Swallow away my fears
May 03, 2009
If I swallow deeply, maybe I can swallow away my fears.
If I sigh fully, maybe I can sigh away my anxieties.
If I stare intently, maybe I can stare away the things I don't want to see.
If I scream loudly, maybe I can scream away my hatreds.
If I shudder strongly, maybe I can shudder away my discontents.
And if I smile purely, maybe I can smile in happiness.
I can relate to each one of these lines. I hope for many smiles for you and I both today!

I like this. Very much.
I might add - "And if I must cry, may my tears be cleansing ones."

Here's another ...
If I pretend that life is wonderful ... perhaps I'll see that it is.
I hope you smile in a lot of happiness!

I can say that sighing fully will relive anxiety if you do it repeatedly.

Rose, you sound like you are surely have passed whatever wall was in front of you and now it has fallen and it is behind, past your present. What a wonderful sensation, even if there is still so much unknown ahead.
