Up until a few years ago, I would have never called myself an anxious person.  I still wouldn’t, for that matter.  But I have been experiencing more and more bouts of anxiety. When I reflect upon it, I have come to realize that often my anxiety stems from feelings of incapability.  Driving makes me feel anxious, because I doubt my skills as a driver.

My supervisor came in today to observe me for the last time as a practice teacher.  I woke up feeling so nervous, you know, like that unsettled feeling in the pit of your stomach?  My observation went well, I had nothing to worry about, but still, I worry.  I think one way of helping to combat this is to prepare more, so that every day is fully planned.

Sometimes I think feeling anxious is a good thing, it’s a sign that I still care.

  1. Hi Michelle!

    I’m loving your blog (followed!) but I would also like to invite you to submit a short piece to my own. I think your perspective and style of writing would be a perfect piece for my project.

    It’d also be a great way to get your blog/writing out there.

    Please feel free to email me (jennifer@youngandtwenty) with more questions, or take a look at the ‘BEING Young & Twenty’ page on my blog.

    I hope I’ll hear from you 🙂
