Week 19

"I refuse to be burdened by vague worries. If something wants to worry me, it will have to make itself clear." - Robert Brault

Anxiety... The gnawing at the pit of your stomach... Mine's vague. It showed up last night & stuck around waiting for me to awaken. But I can't fully put my finger on the why / the what.

I'm trying to turn it over & not be burdened by it. But as the Swedish Proverb says, "Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow."

Maybe because I set my goals of what needed to be accomplished yesterday but then took to heart last week's lesson & didn't let my goals deprive me of interesting detours. Maybe the gnawing is spending too much time on that detour yesterday.... maybe it's the list of things to get done still hanging over me.... did I hurt a friend? If so it was not intentional so maybe the gnawing is nothing at all.

I don't know what it is, but I do know that I am going to spend today trying my best not to give this small thing - which can't even be accurately named - such a big shadow. I'm going to focus on the positives in my life & try not to let this worry steal my spirit.
