I have been doing some big time Creative Introverting for the last while.
I am creating the most...
Why are you panicking right now?
Because I don’t know how to do this! Any of it! OMG! I have to do it but I don’t know how!
Ok. Wow that’s hard. Is it ok if I ask you to take a few deep breaths with me?
Yeah I guess so, I don’t know what else to do.
How do you feel now?
