F Simple and Serene Living: GO AWAY ANXIETY 09 10
Monday, December 1, 2014



Because a little rain will fall into each person's life, Mondays are devoted to a snippet of inspiration. I believe everyone should start out their week feeling inspired.

I woke up this morning knowing that I really needed to practice this today. 

My life seems to have been filled with nothing but anxiety lately, and I have let the anxiety take over. As I sit here today waiting on some test results for myself, and knowing that Katy is still very ill, I realize that instead of focusing on the anxiety, I need to focus on the gratitude. 

I am grateful that, although Katy is still ill, she is now at my daughter Cary's house, where she is getting good care,lots of love,and nourishing food. I am grateful for a caring doctor for myself. I am grateful for a loving family. 

So go away anxiety. I am banishing you. Because life is so much better when you are not around.

I hope you have a wonderful day.
