1. What we focus on grows.
I know if I am focusing on a perceived problem in my life or an ache or pain I feel somewhere in my body, anxiety stands a better chance to flourish.
However, if I focus on what I am thankful for or just get busy doing a task, I stand a better chance to flourish, not anxiety.
2. We are bigger than our problems/anxiety.
Life is what we perceive it to be. Are we letting circumstances alter the quality of our life? We don’t need to give our power away this way. No matter what is going on in our lives, our attitudes and how we feel are a choice we make each minute.
3. Life happens. Life can be humbling. I find as I get older there are no guarantees. Every day is a gift. What are you going to do with this new day?
4. I Am enough.
5. Although I have anxiety pretty well under control these days, there are still some things I do that either help or not.
What helps? Ending my day quietly, reading or writing in my journal or taking a hot bath.
What doesn’t help? Watching an exciting or violent movie or tv show late into the evening or working up until bedtime.
I wish you a blessed day today and a restful night tonight,
