A born worrier or a born warrior? See, I am changing how I perceive things already. About 27 years ago I went to see a medical herbalist regarding concerns about my upcoming wedding. She asked me if I was worried about known or unknown things to which my reply was 'both'. She went on to ask me if worrying about things would change anything and if not, then why worry? True, but easier said than done. The types of things I have worried about have been;
fear of vomiting
being out of control
inability to control my tears
I could go on and on but you get the idea. Anyway, this is a good news story! For a few months now I have been gradually changing the way I handle my thoughts and situations. I am learning to 'under react' to things rather than escalate them out of proportion. I have been helped by the book pictured above. Although a lot of what is written is common sense, it has been good to have a reminder and a reference point for when my emotions get out of hand. Now I have put the worrying to one side, I need to find time to get on with creative pursuits and no book on time management has been able to help so far! I guess I just need to get on and DO IT!!!
