I have been feeling quite anxious over the past few weeks due to a few things out of my control. Work has been a bit stressful, and dealing with a few health hurdles on top of it has made my thought process get quite cluttered.
I was thinking too far ahead when I really should have been thinking of the here and now, and I wasn’t allowing myself to feel the peace of the present moment; today, that changes.
I am choosing today to think in this moment, for this is the only moment that matters. Overthinking about the future doesn’t bring me any peace, and I am choosing to be at ease at this moment. As the great philosopher Marcus Aurelius once said,
“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” -Marcus Aurelius
Be at peace with your thoughts today; tomorrow is not promised to anyone. If you feel anxious, allow yourself room to breathe and bring yourself back to what is in front of you. Keep on keeping on everyone.
What is it that you are thankful for today? Let me know in the comments section, or write it down in your journal.
