WEEKLY INSPIRATION: JUST BREATHE
Do you ever lie in bed and find that you can't shut off your brain and just keep worrying about things? I am a worrier by nature, so have found that I need to watch mindless TV to drift off to sleep. Last night, though, no amount of 30 Rock repeats could quiet my thoughts down.
It's strange how sometimes we are able to compartmentalize things so that we do not obsess or become consumed by fear or anxiousness, while other times we aren't able to be rationale and let things go.
When I'm nervous about something, I just want it to be figured out now, at this very instant. The act of waiting to see if things are a big deal or not is not my strong suit.
So I'm going to tell myself to "just breathe" and think about this beautiful landscape. The world is so awe inspiring and big to be consumed by worries.
So tonight, turn off your thoughts and let yourself just breathe. That's what I'm going to try to do, at least.
How about you? Do you ever feel this way? How do you quiet your worrisome thoughts?
