|Seriously, Mom, just chill out!!!|
This is nothing new. Going off to college sent me into a panic for a full couple of years preceding the actual event. Waiting for my flight to Spain to study abroad, I fainted in the airport bathroom. Job interviews were enough to take me out for about a week at a time. My first year of teaching basically involved me making it through each class to collapse in a pile of nerves after my students left my classroom.
Now that I'm a parent, I even worry about how much I worry. (Not to mention that there's a lot more to worry about now too!) I don't want Evie to live her life consumed by anxiety, but I know that I'm not setting a very good example. I never want her to hesitate to say how she feels, or to miss an opportunity to do something great all because it might not work out the way she plans.
This is one of my biggest dreams for Evie. Someday I hope that she'll be confident and never second guess herself - the total opposite of me.
Of course, I want her to have my amazing sense of humor and style. :-P But I really hope she knows how to relax and go with the flow too!!
Like what you see? Spare a couple of clicks for me!!
