Running around yesterday, doing this, doing that, checking off tasks on the list I noticed the anxiety I was feeling. So I stopped. I stopped the mind racing. Ceased all worry, planning, anticipation. I gave it up and took a few breaths. I let go… telling myself, I will get it all done, all will be well. Then I took a few more breaths.
And you know what? I am a calmer person today because of it. How much unneeded worry do we burden ourselves with? I know letting go isn’t easy, but like remembering to stop and breathe it just takes practice.
