Thanks to TeaDinosaur for the submission!
Hypervigilance sounds innocuous, but it is in fact exhaustingly distressing, a conditioned response to life-threatening situations. Imagine there’s a murderer in your house. And it is dark outside, and the electricity is out. Imagine your nervous system spiking, readying you as you feel your way along the walls, the sensitivity of your hearing, the tautness in your muscles, the alertness shooting around inside your skull. And then imagine feeling like that all the time.
Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next.

This week, I made a new friend: Teresa! I really love her style and her blog is full of the most beautiful photos. And, to be honest, her Qwear feature was one of my favorites: Style Profile: Teresa, Folsom, CA
Seriously had a blast working with the peeps over at qwear. not to mention, I made a new friend out of it ^.^
