#7: The what ifs…

June 16th, 2016 | no comments

A friend recently asked me how to manage the  ‘what ifs’ in life. The ‘what if this happens’ or ‘what if it doesn’t happen’. My response to her was, by being in the present moment. However, being in the present moment takes work! The reality of it is this yesterday is exactly that, yesterday. And tomorrow is yet to happen. It’s a frame of mind that takes both practise and discipline but like anything, the more you practise the better you get. I’ve had lots of practise over the last few weeks with the health of a close family member. I’ve had to remind myself as well as those around me that we need to take one day even one moment at a time and I can tell you without a doubt, it has certainly helped manage the high level of worry. It’s been a mantra I repeat over and over. So next time you find yourself in a worrying situation that maybe causing you anxiety, catch yourself, maybe take a deep breath, bring yourself to the present moment and make it your mantra, one day or even one moment at a time.
