Far from Home
It's a long drive to the art museum. An hour, minus rush hour, to be exact. So, I pass the time repeating some mantras that, according to all of these popular self-help books I read, will greatly benefit my mental health:
I am beautiful.
I am worthy.
I am safe.
Honestly, I am still waiting to see if they work, but in the meantime, I guess they can't hurt.
I tell myself
what they don't
