Why? Why does that little voice come in anytime it feels like it to make us worry and become sad? Is it because deep down we are worried and we put up a front so everyone thinks we're OK? Is it because deep down we fear the worse case scenario?
As a carepartner I know you know what I am talking about. It's that stupid little voice that says "don't get too happy and plan too much because you never know what may happen." Why can't it just shut up and leave us alone?
The best thing I can do when this happens is to remember I am not in control and cannot change anything. I think that's what is the hardest part, giving up that control. God knows what we need and provides in abundance so why let that little voice creep in?
It is times like this that I have to give my own advice back to myself. "Don't worry about something you cannot change. Worry about those you can."
