I read your blog about gratitude....First...thanks for taking the time to write it....and second...I too have social anxiety. I live in the middle of 20 acres in a one room cabin, and when I have to go to town, it's a BIG deal. I have been working on mindfulness and gratitude as well. I am being set free...one day...one minutes (sometimes) at a time. Keep your eyes on your goals and "keep on keeipin on!"
