Re: mindfulness and reducing anxiety. You touched on what helps me when it gets really bad. I think of things I’m grateful for: a roof over my head, water, that I am still healthy enough to do most things, funds sufficient for food, electricity, and to keep my car operative. And if my anxiety tips over into catastrophic thinking, I resort to “I can always live in my car.”😏

On turning gray. I went from dark brunette in 2014 to totally gray in 2020. Not a fan of looking in the mirror (“who is that old lady?”), but leaving it be is the road I decided to travel.
