Inside, her mind conjures flashed negative visions
of failure scenarios.
Outside, raw Inner Fear causes her upper body to
tremble and shake.
Sounds of quick shallow breaths escape, as she mentally,
attempts to gain control. Searching for reality, brain waves
frantically scurry through her frenzied thoughts.
Head tilted downward, lashes lowered, eyes barely open,
overwhelming bright overhead lights and too large an area
cause her to abandon her attempt to scan the entire room.
She switches her minuscule wisp of concentration to locating
a closer target, to gaze upon, fixate.
On the yellow legal pad in front of her, nearly legible,
jagged edge doodles and pen scrawled words,
quivering digits continue writing, diagonal, across and down.
YOU’VE GOT THIS!
Slowly inhaling then exhaling,
she starts writing the familiar list:
Focus on now.
Believe in yourself.
Remember all you have accomplished!
Relax those shoulder muscles!
Smile, this is just a learned response!
Visualize yourself calm.
Your simple steady positive reprogramming is working!
Tick Tock, Tick Tock….
Once again, the attack subsides, she is back.
Kind Regards and Winning – K
