Sometimes I worry. These days I worry less than I used to. Worry used to consume so much of my time. For me it was worse than anger because it would hang around for weeks quietly eroding my spirit. Meditation has helped that.
If something feels uncomfortable inside I take a moment to pause. Sitting with my eyes closed gives me chance to let whatever is there to be there.
After identifying if my feelings truly reflect an issue that needs to be changed I ask is it a situation that is out of my control? If so, I can only control how I react. And really, that’s that. No sense dwelling on things I can fix. If it’s an issue that I can change, I make a plan to change it. Don’t get me wrong, the plan isn’t always easy. But a roadmap can keep me on track in the darkness.
But worry? That gets me nowhere, fast.
So breathe. Sit. Inhale. Exhale.
