Are you filled with worry in this moment?

Even as you’re reading this, are you fretting about paying your bills? Wondering how you’ll get through today? Or the month? Overwhelmed with a diagnosis of an illness? Perhaps the illness of a loved one?

When you are filled with doubt and fear it robs you of this moment. I’m not saying focusing on your breathing or focusing on this moment magically takes away all of your problems, but what is does do is it stops the avalanche of thoughts that defeat us and convinces us that life is too unbearable to handle.

You can do this. You are far stronger than you know.

In this moment, take a few seconds and take a deep breath and say out loud ONE thing you are thankful for. This shifts your brain and allows you to view things from a fresh perspective. It is living actively in the face of all that is going on in your life.

Don’t let your thoughts empty today of its strength.
