I am so anxious this morning. I’m thinking it must be left over from yesterday. I work today and tomorrow. I’m going to breathe and try to. Be fully present. When I have anxiety, real anxiety, more than just an uncomfortable feeling, my mind starts searching for the source. I mentality page through the catalogue of what could or should be bothering me. There are always situations, past, present, or future, that might qualify. Sorting through these things confirms that I have valid reasons for concern and, if anything, increases the negative emotions and worry. Not helpful.
Being inside my head can be quite tedious and discouraging.
So, I will breathe and walk through this day. I think I’ll try to focus, instead, on things for which I am grateful.
