Hi! All my life I have been a worrier, you know…the “what ifs?”. Many times I have worried to the point of making myself sick or I’ll have a rip roaring panic attack. And depending where I am at the time, I would avoid going to those places again. At one point in my life, all the doors closed in on me and the only safe place was my home…..for 4 long years! There is a name for this called Agoraphobia, an anxiety/panic disorder, which I have had all my life. Eventually I got help, which turned my life around. But I still have all the “what ifs? and negative chatter”, which are ingrained in my head and sometimes still stops me from doing things or makes it very difficult. Do you have the "what ifs?"
Finding Zentangle has been a life saver! Breathing and relaxing while tangling patterns keeps my mind occupied (being "mindful"). I can do this anywhere! Becoming a CZT has given my life purpose and has gotten me out of the house and back to teaching and living again (I LOVE teaching!). I have made many wonderful Zentangle friends around the world and I’m so grateful! My mind now is continuously filled with beautiful Zentangle art, patterns, and new ideas for classes!
