The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.

Calm and free

Anxiety is not an outside force. It exists entirely within your own thoughts.

Anxiety is nothing more than a response you choose. And just as surely as you can choose to experience anxiety, you can choose to let it go.

Without your thoughts, anxiety cannot exist. It has no power of its own, and there is no reason to hold on to it.

Instead of being blinded by your anxious thoughts, open your eyes to the positive possibilities. Instead of using your energy to support thoughts of anxiety, you can use that energy to move yourself forward.

Allow love to fill the places where anxiety now resides. Feel a warm sense of peace and serenity as your anxious thoughts melt away.

See what happens when you choose to respond with love, with gratitude, with acceptance and positive expectations. With a calm mind and a peaceful heart, you are free to be your very best.

— Ralph Marston
