Worrying is such a awfully powerful emotion. Many of us within the chronic illness community live daily with a heap of things to worry about. Our health, our finances, our family’s health, a new symptom, our new normal, fear of losing more, the state of the world, decisions on treatments, how to manage all that is required of us, and on many days, how and the heck we are just going to make it until we get to go to bed again.
It sucks. It is not good for our bodies, minds or souls to experience continuous worry and anxiety with only brief moments of quiet and calm. Even if you do not live with constant worry, it has a ability to sneek up on you when you least expect it. You may be living in the moment, consumed with what appears to be happy thoughts and BOOM, you are hit so intensely that you feel as it any moment the anxiety is literally going to take over every cell in your body and bring you to your knees.
I know we all strive to live a worry free life, to be set free from our own thoughts, to be able to live outside of our deeply wired beliefs and messages. It’s hard, especially if you have been living this way for a long time.
So my question for you this week is, “What do you do to refocus your thoughts toward peaceful and calming energy, and removing worry from your mind?”
