Thanks for popping in.
I am in danger of sliding out of my track today; I can feel it.
You know that feeling, that anxious sense that you get when you’ve drunk too much coffee, except you haven’t drunk any?
So I have to refer back to my old handbook of life,
and the first rule is: keep it in the day.
Stop worrying about tomorrow.
Just do today today.
And instantly, I feel less anxious.
Not that anything has happened! I don’t need a calamity or a disaster to panic! In fact, I actually do quite well in a real crisis!
But just for today, all I have to do is get through today.
I wrote this at lunchtime.
And so you see, I was right.
All I had to do was deal with today.
As it came, so it went.
And all is well. The anxiety went away all by itself, because I stopped projecting, stopped looking too far ahead.
So I shall light a candle, drink chamomile and turn in.
New day tomorrow, and I shall be very vigilant as soon as I wake up. I think the negative rot set in this morning, before I had even rinsed the sleep out of my eyes. A negative thought becomes a negative feeling all too quickly, doesn’t it?
Love & Hugs,
