Thursday Thoughts - Rest
Journal Prompt – Rest and relax. Release guilt and make your needs a top priority. You can’t control your past because it’s already happened, so let it go. You can’t control your future because you have no idea what’s going to happen, so let it go. Release the worry and the need to control. All you have to do is take care of yourself, the rest will work itself out. For this entry, write about anything you need to let go of, release it all! Start fresh this month!
Human beings love control. We stress ourselves out trying to plan out our future or dwelling in the past. Over the years I’ve had to make myself live day to day. I made myself stop thinking about the past, stop worrying about the future. Just focused on what was right in front of me. The more you are engaged in the present moment, you’ll start to realize that those past worries will start to disappear, and you’ll start enjoying life. It’s not an easy process because you are un-learning a habit that has been a big part of your life but take it day by day. This is why I encourage journaling (whatever that means for you) because it is truly a release. It allows those thoughts and worries to go somewhere other than your mind.
Follow along in your own journal! Have fun!
