Step back and take a deep breath

Lately my thoughts have run away with me on a matter that has been troubling me. I had been envisioning a situation that is not even close to happening and have been tossing things around, mulling it over in my mind and truthfully, expecting the worst case scenario to play out in a multitude of horrendous different ways...  We all do this, don't we?

As bad as it may seem to me, in reality it is a lot different. I took a step back from it all, took a few deep breaths and looked at things from a different perspective. As much as my thoughts may be rushing things, how it will pan out could be entirely different when it finally comes to fruition.  I may still have my concerns, and these should never be discounted, but as far as my worst fears and all that hooey-hullaballoo that goes with them- there really wasn't a lot to be caught up in to begin with. 

My last post about unspoken words? I was trying to find the courage to tell a person about my apprehension. Now that I have a cleared head and better idea of what to expect, that things aren't so out of control and my fears were more or less unfounded, it will be easier to speak my mind and get it off my chest.  I can lay it aside and look forward to the peaceful resolve sure follow.

  1. I tend to think of the worst case scenario at times too and get my panties all in a wad. Such unnecessary stress when things usually work themselves out.

    1. The stress is such an unwelcome guest at those times too. Things do always work out.

  2. I always expect the worst to happen. On the plus side, it makes for a pleasant surprise when things turn out well.

    1. That's like having low expectations and never being disappointed. Sometimes it is just how you perceive things.
