You Must Decide.

Original post: May 31st, 2019


I don't know about you, but I am tired of letting worry be a stronghold in my life! As someone who has lived with anxiety for as long as I can remember, the struggle is REAL.


BUT so is the freedom to choose. It's not always easy. Sometimes choosing faith over fear is nearly impossible... Nearly... I am learning to take my thoughts captive and only embrace the ones that are good for me.


"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."

-ARISTOTLE


Does that mean only happy thoughts? Of course not!!! Sometimes unhappy thoughts, angry thoughts, or thought provoking thoughts can all be helpful. It's sorting through what's what that's the hard part.


For example, there have been times I have played a scenario over in my mind a hundred times... At least... Usually with mostly negative endings. 99.99% of the time, NONE of those I played over come to pass... The hours I spent worrying and contemplating about what could go wrong... Well, it was wasted time and energy! I got myself all worked up for nothing! Then I am left feeling drained wishing I hadn't wasted all that time.


Ever been there?


And sometimes my brain will jump to the worst possibility before even considering the best opportunity.


Occasionally I've hurt those I love b/c I am so stuck inside my own head that I can't see beyond my fears... And my fears become my reality when realistically they are illogical and unfounded. If that's ever been you, I'm sorry.


For those of you who, like me, struggle with anxiety, let's work on kicking those unfounded worries to the curb and embrace only the thoughts that move us forward.


I've got this!

You've got this!

WE'VE GOT THIS!!!
