OMG this topic had to come up today. Yesterday I made a list of the things stressing me out and there were seven of them, count them, seven. And when I read through them they were really only the same stress: "Will my body be able to handle doing this?" Every single item. My confidence peaks and dips. My progress isn't linear. My courage sometimes deserts me. My personality says I have to rock all these things, do every one of them perfectly, make a neat little check in the box next to each one. That may not happen. And I need to learn to be okay with that, because that's what is.
