PAGE IN PROGRESS What you see here is a page of my hypertext book POWER of meanings // MEANINGS of power. Initially empty, this page will slowly be filled with thoughts, notes, and quotes. One day, I will use them to write a coherent entry, similar to these completed pages. Thank you for your interest and patience!
Another example: I have been working with my therapist on my anxiety. My anxiety manifests itself in all sorts of ways. For example, sometimes it interferes with my creativity. It manifests in thoughts about imperfection of my work (including this website/book); then, if I manage to shift my thoughts to the idea that my creations are good, then my anxiety has me question whether anybody really cares about outcomes of my work.
In this case power to see things differently would be to remind myself that my perceptions are not an objective reflection of reality but just my anxiety talking. I can remind myself that most of my creative work is open-ended, and that's its beauty (it also means that I always have lots of interesting things to accomplish).
