When I woke up, I must admit there was a heaviness in my heart. I am worried about the trip to see my babies. I have had my car since the end of February and it runs very well. It is a Subaru Legacy (a type of car I have previously owned and had wonderful luck with), it is a great car but it has nearly 200,000 miles on it… probably why I got such a good deal on it. LOL.
My trip to TX and back will be approximately 2600 miles. I will be traveling with my 2 oldest children (16, and 17) and will be switching off driving with my son who is a GREAT driver during the longest stretch of the journey to make good time.
All of a sudden I began to panic. What if the car breaks down? What if I get a flat? What if I don’t have enough money to cover the gas. What if, what if, what if?!
While these are valid concerns… they should not affect my mood of the day… or send me into a panic.
After some assurances, I have calmed down and I am just going to go with it. I will get my car serviced and looked over for any possible “foreseeable” issues… I will have enough money… and I will STOP worrying this instant. I will enjoy the excitement of having all my children together with me. ♥
Today is a beautiful day.
In a few weeks I will be with all of my children having the most amazing time.
Remember my friends…. worrying like this is not good for us and it sneaks up sometimes when we are not aware. Recognize the signs and squash it. Taking necessary steps to a goal is one thing… allowing your brain to panic and cause much distress is another.
Being aware and “in the moment” is where we need to be. ♥
