Worry. It’s Useless
“You can’t always choose what happens to you, but you can choose how you feel about it.”
Worry. Trust me, it’s useless.
Taking radical responsiblity for how you create your life, how you respond to the people and circumstances around you – is about choosing positivity when you could just as easily choose negativity.
I spent the last week packing up our life; a treasure trove of memories and life-changing pivotal moments. After 3 years in the same place, we unexpectedly received notice that our place sold and need to vacate by the end of the month. Moving can be a traumatic experience, especially if you choose to play in the mud-pit of stress and anxiety that go hand in hand with boxes, bubble wrap and tape + the added pressure of finding a new pad.
Yet, despite the size of this task and what it entails, it really doesn’t have anything to do with the circumstances that are unfolding for me right now.
This entire process has been about what it stirs in me, what it requires of me.
Beyond the worry.
More a palpable shift – physically, emotionally, mentally. And with it, an inner certainty, based on no logic at all, that everything is going to be fine. More than fine.
So let me turn this to you. Whatever curve ball life is throwing you right now, the capacity to witness something that your mind or outside sources might label as negative – and to remain in a positive state while doing so – is what self-determination and transformation is all about.
Peaceful even in chaos, generous when broke, loving in the face of oppression. Think of Nelson Mandela experiencing inner freedom whilst in prison.
Being able to experience peace, even appreciation, when you’re in a tough situation is a result of being in touch with your soul.
The feeling of peacefulness is an indicator of who you really are. Feeling like a bag of aggravated worry balls is an indicator that you’re out of touch with your greatness.
Peace or worry. Your choice, my loves.
What’s it to be this week?
