June 27th: Worry and Fear

996159_258737577600574_1776435801_n In the past, when I became fearful, I would begin to spin a mental tape of every worst case scenario and fret over the fact that I could not control the crisis that was currently playing out in my life. These hours of worry produced nothing more than fatigue and frustration. “What ifs” and “Should haves” will not help to get me through the day. I must keep my focus firmly planted in the present and use the time that I have been given to accomplish real work and not waste my time fearing what “may” happen. I have no control over outcomes. The only control I have is over my own thoughts and actions. – “Dear God, help me to let go of worry and fear. Help me to believe that everything is as it should be and everything will be revealed in time.”

  1. I so needed this today! I have been worrying and stressing over things that I clearly have no control over. I realize that in this moment I can only focus on myself and my kiddies. Baby steps……

  2. The fear is unbearable most days and I am a year and half out of divorce. Unlike many on here my divorce was a choice I made because I simply wasn’t in love with my husband, ever. I married him because he was a great guy and on paper it was a good marriage. He was a great guy and we were partners but there was no love or passion in our marriage. I think it would be easier if I could say he was a horrible person. I miss the partnership we had and I fear the unknown and the uncertainty of my future. My childhood growing up with addicts has made it very hard for me to make good decisions in relationships and trust that I am worthy of love.
