These three words could fundamentally change your life: I am excited. Some new research shows that this could really, really help you and your anxiety when it comes to new things (or things that really scare you like public speaking):
These three words could fundamentally change your life: I am excited.

+John Saddington  Ha! Yeah, that makes sense, but I haven't looked at a default WordPress install recently.
