Explaining those odd spots in the emotional scale...
Monday, January 14, 2013
Those of us who tend to "fret" at times need to meditate and pray, exercise, breathe... whatever... to get back to the place of calm.
Excitement can come from happy sources: anticipation of son's return. Saw him online as recently as yesterday morning, so I know he's not yet in transit. Happiness over them starting the process to purchase their first home. The house offer was countered and the counter accepted.
Anxiety can arise from the what-ifs, the fears of all the things that can go wrong: travel dangers, financial storms, etc.
Both show up, mixed together, and need to be dealt with: deep breath, put things beyond my control firmly in the "God box". I am not living my kids' lives... I am learning my own lessons.
And with that, I'm off to work on a Monday. Work is also a way of dealing with things that it *are* mine to influence!
