Don’t Walk Around With An Umbrella Waiting For It To Rain

Worrying has been such a common theme for me lately.  I guess you could say that I do not always deal with the unknown very well…

I have finally learned that I should not fear change and I am doing my very best to embrace the changes in my life, but I cannot seem to shake off my worries.

It must be a bad habit…  I think of the changes then my mind immediately goes to how things could go wrong or things that I am worried about.  Then I stay stuck in that space for too long tip-toeing around and bracing myself for the worst.  It is hard to live like this.  It puts me in fight or flight and I become short-tempered and defensive.  This is not how I want to be.

The good news is that habits can be broken.  I love Wiz Khalifa’s quote because it provides a ridiculous visual.  I live in the rainy state of Washington so rain is inevitable.  I take each day as it comes.  It would be ridiculous to worry about rain when the sun is out.  I do not want my worries about the future to eclipse the gifts of the present.

Yes, there are a lot of changes happening right now.  Could things go wrong?  It’s possible, BUT things could also go right too!  I am going to make it a point to focus on what I want and doing everything I can to move forward rather than wasting my energy worrying about what could go wrong.
