That’s what I try to repeat myself whenever I am overthinking whether things are good or bad (specially the things I feel are bad).
The minute we stop cataloguing events and focus instead of our mindful respond or not to situations, the minute our anxiety does away, and we regain control.
Life happens, that the best gift we get every day and what happens in such life is what gives meaning to waking up.
Challenges or opportunities, all situations will have multiple angles we can look them by, and we have the power in ourselves.
But we must try.
In these times, taking things at face value and then figuring the best next step is an approach we can take with so much uncertainty flowing around.
This is my daily practice.
