Triggered

Alice puts the finishing touches on her resume.   She will email it along with a cover letter to apply for a position for an early childhood educator.  She hits the “send” icon, shuts down the computer and stands to stretch.  Her body feels awkward and stiff.  Suddenly a wave of regret floats across her mind.  She flips open the lap top, reads the email and thinks,  “ I should have been more enthusiastic!"   Palms sweating, her heart races.  She feels at a distance from the world.  Alice is creative, bright and compassionate yet she feels lethargic, boring and ignorant.
