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.
