Is There A Haunted House In Your Head?
This Week's Simple Tip
Why do we drive ourselves crazy thinking about future "what ifs??" We seem to be really good at creating a haunted house of scenarios and characters. This kind of worrying is neither healthy nor enjoyable. Fortunately, we can sometimes eliminate many of the frets with a simple conversation. Just recently, I was driving with a friend to an event. She couldn't even be excited about going as she was worrying about two other events in her future. We had a few minutes to kill so I suggested that she just make a call to ask a few questions and clarify the facts about one of the future events. You know what happened? She was able to breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy the rest of the day once she found out that her assumptions that were causing her angst were incorrect.
