Life Reflection: Don’t Be Anxious

Anxiety is something we all have to deal with at some point in our lives. Some of us have to deal with it on a daily basis and some of us deal with it less often. It doesn’t have to be something that is inevitable. Sure, we can’t control when we feel anxious but when we begin to feel this way, all we have to do is accept it’s part of life.

Yeah, that’s right. It’s really that simple. Sure…it won’t always get rid of the anxiety but anxiety does not need to BE you. The way we successfully defeat anxiety is by embracing life with all its ups and its downs.

When we feel anxiety coming, on for whatever reason, it’s important to think of it as the next adventure. When I travel, I often feel anxiety. The unknown, not being with my husband, schedules…all of these things and more can make me anxious. I’ve learned to take it as it comes and not let my nerves get the best of me.

Instead I try to remember it’s the adventure that makes life fun. It’s the challenge that makes life worth working for and it’s the process of building that makes life interesting. These are also the things that help push back anxiety.

So, let’s all try to be creative. Let’s all try to be practically idealistic and think of today, always with the future in the back of our minds.

And let’s try to channel anxiousness into something good.
