Anxiety’s all about not having control (at least for me).
When moving to a new place, there’s no control over how it’ll go.
When starting a new job, there’s no control over how co-workers will receive you.
When current job hasn’t given a definitive guidelines on exit interviews, there’s no control on how it’ll end.
When there’s a quarterly review going on, there’s no control over how the supervisor will perceive it.
When court in another city gets cancelled, as a prospective juror, there’s no control.
Right now, I feel as though I don’t even a minimal amount of control over my life.
Cue anxiety attacks every hour.
Here’s what I do have more than a minimal amount of control over.
Enjoying the beautiful weather and interacting with those out & about
Making conversations with people from all walks of life – either outside or inside (internet)
The food I chose to put into my stomach – it’ll be yummy tonight. Definitely getting a coke (the soda)
How well I chose to dress up or down – pajamas in bed it is & that’s ok
Focusing on finishing my goals for March 2017 – visiting an art gallery & reading a fun book
Watching a variety of shows on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime – I chose.
While I don’t’ have control over the external things in my life, it’s all about focusing on what I can control. I suppose, it’s all about leaving it up to the One above & having faith He’s got the best life planned for you.
Perfect recipe for minimal anxiety attacks
