Earlier this morning, tossing and turning while the rest of the world slept, I couldn’t sleep. During this state, I started to feel anxious wondering about the future and how I can control the present.
Ever since the Holidays, I’ve been feeling exhausted, though determined to stay focused. However, things don’t always go as planned. Trying to control so much is not productive. Sometimes you just have to take time to smell the roses and know that He is in control and things will naturally work itself out.
Since I am my harshest critic, I had to take a deep breath and decide I wasn’t going to slip back into allow my anxiety disorder to flare up and cause those old feelings of depression and worry to arise. I have come too far to turn back now. So in that state of anxiety, I thanked God for my blessings, told myself that He’s in control and everything will happen on His terms. I proceeded to eat some food and turned on a movie – Kung Fu Panda 3.
Even though it’s a cartoon, it’s the moral of the story that got to me the most. Having the courage to believe in yourself against all odds and know that when you need it the most, you can always find a strong spirit within, or your Chi, to push you through and connect you on your path to greatness. Though the journey may be tough and you may encounter some scary people that try to tear you down, know that you are a conqueror. However, never be too hard on yourself. Always take time to have a laugh and smell the roses knowing that everything happens for a reason and it will eventually work itself out. You just have to trust the journey ahead!
