It’s not the current reality that causes my fear; it’s my thoughts about the situation that are the root of my fear.
It’s feels like if I don’t fear it, I won’t be able to do anything to stop it!
This is the root of my anxiety, dread, fear and even terror.
When I can pull myself away from the movies in my head and focus on the fact that I am presently just fine, then I come to a place of mindfulness. I am currently not in the movie. The movie is only in my mind. I am here, standing in the kitchen or sitting in my chair, and I am just fine.
Fear is just the story I am telling myself. The gift is that life continues to go on no matter what I believe about it.
Reality is always kinder than the story I am believing about it.
