What I learned today on my drive home:
Do not turn a perceived or possible threat into a real and present threat. This is easily accomplished if you stay in the moment.
To stay in the moment and not be vulnerable to possible threats, you have to be able to listen to yourself.
I do not often value myself enough to trust to listen to myself.
I am going to work those if I am going to stay safe traveling the world. This is also why I cannot be around people full of doubt or who make me doubt myself. Incredibly selfish, but necessary.
