Anxiety is a freight-train, unhinged off the tracks, going at lightning speeds.
Tonight got me to thinking about how this all came on and how quite possibly- maybe one of you is feeling similarly at this moment and needing some support.
Anxiety (and fear) is what happens when we don't stand where we are.
If you're fearing something, if you're feeling afraid or anxious- is it because you're at point Z in your mind while your feet are at point A? Are you way ahead of where you are right now? The answer is almost always yes. I find bringing myself back to where I stand tends to help me immensely.
I'll be talking more about the what if game in an upcoming newsletter- but for now I'll offer this:
Worry lives in the future, so if we stay in the moment we are in now, it can ease the anxiety of what may OR MAY NOT come.
How many things that you're worrying about haven't happened yet? How many of your worries aren't focused on the NOW?
By realizing how many of the worries are future-based, it can create the distance we need between the rational and anxiety-ridden mind. The point A vs. the Point Z.
Stay present on what IS- and there will be no need to worry at all about the what IF.
