I remember my friend Emerald told me to write down my burdens in an envelope, seal it, and let that be the last I think about it. Now my frugality kicked in and I was like "umm I'm not wasting any envelopes" then she hit me with "not a real one, one in your mind".
I honestly thought I wasn't strong enough to do that, like mentally throw an emotion or worry away?
Nah. I can't do that. Cannot. Can. Not.
At 30 I finally did it. I had a huge burden and I had to literally stop worrying about it (then I realized how blessed I was).
Now I still think about it, but now that I've decluttered my burdens so many new blessings have come into my life.
Everyday I'm learning that when you feel most vulnerable and anxious you're on the verge of a big change, be prepared for it. We have to stay strong, even when we feel our weakest. Otherwise we'll miss our blessing worrying about things we can't control.
Try the mental envelope thing (working on a good name for it) and tell me what happens...
P.S. don't block that blessing with worry because things get easier.
