About this photo: “I have trouble getting out when I feel depressed or anxious, which is most of the time these days, but I have a 2-year-old, so it is important for me to find a way. I have only been out a handful of times so far this year, but I was determined to go on a vacation with my family this past week. It was not easy, but somehow I made it, and I’m so glad I did. I don’t want to keep holding my family back from opportunities. I want them to be able to fly, literally and figuratively, and I want to fly with them. So I am putting one foot in front of the other, and reminding myself to look at the world through my daughter’s eyes, with wonder instead of fear.”
