This is more a reminder to myself than anything.
I'm getting near the end of the series and I've made some good progress (some days it feels like I haven't made any, but when I look back to where I came from, I see the strides I've taken).
Since I have made some progress, I sometimes get sloppy with the lessons I've learned along the way. In particular, I sometimes notice that I speed up when I talk and that this speed causes me some anxiety and that I end up using fifty words when ten will do. It's like I'm on a runaway freight train with no control. When I catch myself in these moments and slow down, the anxiety diminishes, I regain control of my words, and my message becomes more clear.
This is a good reminder to myself that the techniques I learned early in the series are still valuable in overcoming my anxiety.
