Anxiety: Sandy Hook

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. The Sandy Hook tragedy can spark feelings of anxiety, not only for them but, for others looking at the unfolding circumstances. The Sandy Hook tragedy will re-ignite sadness, grief, that has happened and thought forgotten in a life. The healing process takes time, and what is required to function normally is different for each person. Anxiety is excessive worrying. People filled with anxiety tend to expect a tragedy, or the worse to happen. Life for an individual with anxiety is full of fear. Manage anxiety by pushing yourself back into a normal routine. Move at a pace that's comfortable for you. Don't allow anyone to rush you, or drag you in the wrong direction. Manage anxiety by writing about your experience. A journal, blog or note-book works well. The act of writing glides you forward, because writing is therapeutic. Manage anxiety by exercising. Take a walk. Maybe, relax with yoga. A puzzle is another option. Don't forget to pray. Seek-out health-care professionals to manage anxiety, if necessary. Anxiety, tragedy, happens in life, but there are ways to manage it. Get back into a normal routine, write about it, exercise, pray and seek-out health-care professionals are a few ways to manage anxiety.

Jovan Belcher: Domestic Violence?

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. Domestic violence is reported in connection with Jovan Belcher's name , the football player. The mind-set that freed him to shoot and kill the the mother of his 3-month-old daughter can't easily be explained. It's reported that earlier Belcher had been spotted outside of another woman's place. Police woke him up as he slept in his car. At home, Belcher and 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins argued. Did Perkns question Belcher about another woman? Where was he? Financial problems? Perhaps, substance abuse issues? Maybe, Perkins decided not to take anymore. Belcher vowed to never do violence against women, what happened? My question: What happens in life that makes a person kill for control?

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
