“I’m noticing how much added anxiety there is at night and any time I’m not in a place where I’m “supposed to be.” I keep thinking that a man wouldn’t have half the fears I have.
My solution for the present is to take it one day at a time. I need to keep focusing my attention on the small things right in front of me that make me happy, even if the world at large outside the tiny walls of my van is a chaotic mess. I suppose this is good advice in ordinary life, too. Focus on the good things, the little things you love, and the rest will follow.”
