a and b: Anxiety for Veronika C. Legend 7a: I chose to take a picture of a clock in my home, and I added the image of the fast pace city life for the background. To me, this clock represents all the time spent dealing with anxiety, as well as time wasted trying to cope. With all the stresses brought on by the fast pace of our everyday lives, it just doesn’t seem like there is enough time in the day to get things done or even enjoy the quality of life we’d like to. I feel that a lot of our anxiety comes from the pressures of trying to keep up with the fast pace of everyday life, and sadly time just doesn’t stand still nor does life slow down to allow us to catch up! We just have to keep going and in the hustle of things, try to seek ways to help with our anxiety along the way. “There is not enough time in the day to get things done”!. Legend 7b: I had my daughter take a picture of my grandson praying. I chose this image because I feel like through our bad times as well as our good times, we should pray. I am a firm believer in prayer. I know that it is my Heavenly Father who keeps me strong and allows me to keep pressing forward everyday, and not give up when I feel I am at my weakest. Prayer has been my MAIN source of strength as well as my way to control and get through my battles with anxiety, stress and depression, especially since I prefer not to take medicine. Prayer is powerful, and I am truly a woman of faith! “I am truly a woman of faith”!
