Ya, I’m fine.
“Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.” (Romans 15:4)
Everyone has ups and downs. Every single day presents a wonderful set of new experiences and maybe even a few trials thrown in there. I feel the need to keep my stress with me at all times. In my mind, if I let it go, I will forget about it and it will not get taken care of. I have to stress, worry, and fret, otherwise chaos will ensue. That’s logical right? Then, there is the other mindset of let that stuff go. What good does worrying about things do for you? I am torn.
My mind is constantly going. All the time. Thinking, pondering, dreaming, planning and yes, worrying. It never stops. Ever. I dream every night and remember my dreams. Most of the time I am forecasting; thinking ahead of what might happen. I like to try to plan so I am not caught off guard. You see, if I am not prepared, then I will fail. The exact thing I am stressing about will come true! More logic.
I don’t think I am going too far out on a limb by assuming most women can relate. I am not about to negate yours or my feelings because I know they are important and some are quite valid. What I am going to do though is say chill! How much time and energy have you and I wasted? What else could you have done with that precious time? We have to learn to live in the moment because life is passing us by rapidly.
But how? Very good question and if you have the answer to end all stress, please, pass that along. Until there is some magical cure for this, I choose to find my happy medium. The things I really “need” to stress about I write down, the other things, the what-if this or that happens, say peace out. There is some statistic that states 85% of what we worry about never really happens. That’s a whole lot of time I could be spending reading the new In Style magazine or on Pinterest.
What is the point of all this? Don’t rob yourself the joy of life. Fist bump and move on.
