So what am I doing now to do to stop worrying so much?
I’m TAKING ACTION!
You fellow control freaks know what I’m talking about. We like to be in the driver’s seat. It’s not that we’re bossy, it’s just that you do it wrong. What?
I may not be able to control the outcome of every situation, but if I simply DO the things that are actually within my power and leave the rest to fate, I feel much more in control and liberated from worry.
Worry: My son being teased at school about his sister being different.
Action: Talk it out with him, discuss potential scenarios and how to handle them, give him the tools to share his message (video) about his sister’s Chromosome Deletion.
Worry: Missing a deadline.
Action: Revamp my schedule and calendar alert system and PRIORITIZE.
Worry: Health concerns (mine and family members).
Action: Discuss details with my doctor and book necessary appointments to make sure we’re as up-to-date as proactively possible.
