In my last blog I wrote briefly about my “what ifs” for my upcoming trip to Thialand. I am a worry wart and I hate it! I have a tendancy to overanalyze and overthink everything, sometimes to the point of causing anxiety. The worst part, the worrying is usually about nothing important. I saw this picture online a few years ago and thought it was perfect. This made SO much sense that it took a minute to process….
What in the world is the use in worrying!?
I’m causing mysef anxiety over something I can fix? Why…problem is soon to be solved.
I’m causing myself anxiety over something I cannot do anything about!? Why…it is out of my control.
This map has stuck in my head since I found it. Do I wish I could follow this perfectly, yes. Easier said than done. I know I will always have some type of worry about something, but it has definitely helped to calm some of those thoughts.
Take a deep breath. Figure out a plan. Execute or let it go.
