Sometimes a status check is necessary.
When things are going haywire, all crap is hitting the fan and you feel more like screeching than breathing, it’s time to check the old pulse point.
Concentrate on the thump-thump-thump that may not be steady but is drumming along a heck of a lot longer than your panic and anxiety ever said that it would.
If you’ve got a pulse, you’re winning.
Say it aloud.
Say it loud.
I’ll say it with you.
