Yesterday I was reading a post by Chelsey. She made a comment on feeling very anxious when she didn’t have a solid game plan for dinner that really resonated with me.
Truth time: I get much too worked up about dinner plans. It really worries me when I don’t know exactly what I will be eating when 5:30 rolls around. Worries me to the point of ridiculousness — just ask my boyfriend. It drives him crazy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s perfectly normal to be anxious when you have no groceries/time/whatever, but to worry about it when you know you have the resources to throw something together? Say what?
Why the heck should I waste my energy on worrying about dinner? There are bigger things to worry about. Or… wait for it… I could let go of worrying. Let go of the anxiety. Now that’s an idea (my pup has clearly mastered this idea).
Letting go of something so inherently a part of your internal paradigm is terrifying. But that’s exactly why it needs to be done. Do one thing every day that scares you, right?
Friends, I will be the first to admit this is hard. There’s nothing easy about putting worrying aside. But you feel so FREE when you are able to. Trust me, I never would have started this blog if I was still holding onto worrying in this realm of my life.
I challenge each and every one of you to let go of something, right here and now. Be it a worry, a stale relationship, or just a negative thought… let it go.
Ok, off of my soap box. I leave you with a picture of both my dogs. Aren’t they the greatest?
Be back soon with a more upbeat post. Stay tuned, and THANK YOU FOR READING!
