guilts, shames, embarrassments, angers.
One by one, pick up each memory or fear that troubles you,

Release each fear - your fears about your health,
your family, your job, and every other fear.

of what could be a great life.
If you live in fear of losing your job,

If you live in fear of losing your stuff and money,
it is clear that they own you.

Don't take it personally.

Working at a job you hate is unlikely

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

whether you have lost a job.
Move on and let go.
Life can be joyful and rewarding again.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

You are worrying about paying your bills and finding a new job.
Those are worries about tomorrow.
