Letter to Selves

Dear anxiety,
slow down, live in this moment,
you’re speeding ahead,
thoughts racing,
breaths panting,
life filling you with dread.

Dear depression,
engage the world, live in this moment,
you’re shrinking within,
happiness trapped,
thoughts turned back
mired in the past again and again.

Dear life,
embrace it all, live in this moment,
you’re equal to the challenge,
the possibilities,
the opportunities,
the whole the journey has to give.
