Sometimes it’s a challenge for me to just let go. Let go of the worries, cares and what if’s. I’ve always been a bit of an anxious person. About a year ago after a particularly difficult bout of anxiety I came up with a new mantra for life, “Think less. Do more.” I realized that all of the energy I was putting into worrying would be best used towards doing. Instead of sitting and worrying about meal planning, the ten loads of laundry and how I would get through the day keeping my kids and myself sane, I just started doing those things. It sounds so silly but it’s easy for me to get caught up in my head. So now when I find my head spinning, I crank up the music, pull my hair up and go to work. I’ve found that starting on a simple task gets my mind on a single track. From there I can move onto the next task and then the next until my worries have become checks on my to-do list and my mind is at peace. These pictures of my little mud babies are the perfect example of how my jedi mind training has been working on me. This scene could have caused me quite a bit of stress one year ago. I’m constantly amazed by the way life moves along and one day at a time we are able to conquer our struggles through small, simple changes.
