Dear Annabella,

Another excellent article! I really liked #5 — once you know yourself, you’ll have more time to daydream. That really struck a chord. Once I figured out that I was enough as I was, complete, & whatever else I wanted to learn I could do at my leisure, it really did create a lot more breathing room for me.

I stopped being in so much of a hurry. I started doing deep breaths — what others might call meditation. When I knit & watch TV, I relax & enjoy myself, it’s my time & no one guilts me about it.

Once you know yourself & are comfortable with yourself, you become comfortable with the rest of the world. Thank you for pointing that out!
