“Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.”—Marcus Annaeus Seneca, 4 BC – 65 AD, Roman philosopher and moralist.

I saw this quote and thought it really applies to my desire to live a life without debilitating anxiety and panic. If I’m focused on the panic attack or the symptom then that is probably the “harbor” I’m headed for.

And then I wonder why I can’t get better, when I want, so badly, to get better!

But, if my aim is healthy, active living – the life that is out there for me to live – then that’s the “harbor” I’m headed for.

So, maybe I have a better chance of getting there!

Just thought I’d share 🙂
