Day Seventeen – What if…

i threw caution to the wind? i forgot the words i heard long ago that keep me trapped in a cycle of not living my dreams? i can’t support myself? i can’t support Maya? i can’t pay my bills? no one reads what i write? i get writer’s block? i become a hermit? i forget to take care of myself? i forget to shower? i forget to exercise? i forget to meditate? i forget to go to yoga? i don’t even have money to go to yoga? my depression paralyzes me again? my anxiety and depression team up and try to kill me? i buckle down and write a book? if it gets published? what if i write a book and it gets published and i have to be social to promote it? if every publisher tells me i can’t write to save my life? then after that i have to figure out how to save my life because i’m broke? i try and i can’t? i have to start all over again…again? i just let go and see what happens?
