So this transformation that I have been going through isn’t all about exercise and eating healthy. I have constantly been thinking about everything I do for the last 5 months (anything and everything from my posture to trying to remember to think positively), and its, to be completely HONEST, exhausting at times. To be healthy, however, involves a holistic transformation…mind, body, spirit; eat, think, move. So in addition to changing my eating habits, and moving my body, I have been working VERY hard on spiritual, emotional and mental health for myself too. I realized I haven’t spoke with you about this much, and I was just wondering why that is. I think that it’s those pieces of us that we are ashamed to admit we struggle with…but yet most of us struggle with it the most.
I was recently speaking with one of my best friends about how I worry soooo much. I worry all the time! MOSTLY about things that haven’t even HAPPENED…what MIGHT happen. Ridiculous, I know. While I KNOW this is doing TERRIBLE things to my body…I still struggle with it. How have any of you dealt with worrying? How did you conquer it?
I’m working on looking at things as if I have no control over what will happen, because let’s be honest, I don’t….
As Doris Day once sang:
“Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que sera, sera ”
Some of my favorite quotes that friends have said to me about my worrying:
Steph- “Don’t go borrowing trouble now”
“Worrying is like a rocking chair…it gives you something to do, but gets your NOWHERE!”
“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy”. ~Leo Buscaglia
