Life is funny

Isn’t it strange how panic/anxiety come and go like they own the place?

You have a good morning and dare hope it won’t least for today.

I am a planner by nature. “What if” is like breathing for me. But I’ve started to try to enjoy the moments that I can sit calmly. I try to focus on the gratitude for those moments instead of the worry over what the next moment will be.

I’m terrible at the here and now. I don’t want to be caught off guard so, I “pre-worry”. I worry about what could happen as a remote possibility. After all, I want to be prepared incase there truly is something to be afraid of!

So, in my new panic world, I’m trying to focus on what is in front of me.

I was fearful for a long time about losing my job. I’ve established I can go a full year or so on my savings if I had to. So, I’m going to try to purge that from the worry pile.

I would get almost irate if someone called in at work. Now, it’s not a big deal. (I have to walk myself through the steps of understanding that it’s just a moment in time, not forever)

I think when panic takes over your life and your hit with clear signs that stress is too high, you start changing how you think so that you can survive.
