Sometimes I find myself so overwhelmed with day-to-day life that my mind becomes engulfed by fear.
Fear of things I have no control over.
It always seems funny to me… how struggling with commitments can turn into struggling with fear.
But… it always makes sense when I break it down to one simple fact: loss of control.
Whenever I am feeling out of control in day-to-day life, that is when fear sets in.
It is at this time that I know I must quiet my mind and focus on small tasks to return to a calm sense of balance:
Folding one pile of clothes.
Mailing off a bill.
Making the bed.
Sweeping the porch.
Each chore may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things but order in my daily life releases my mind from chaos, clutter, and fear and allows me to focus on what truly matters:
Progressing on my spiritual path instead of wasting my precious time lost in a state of panic.
“Dear God, help me to let go of fear and calm my mind. Help me to complete each small task so that I am able to move forward towards bigger accomplishments.”
