Good Morning!


This morning my 6 year old daughter was very upset about going to school. Today was the day she was to have her make-up photos taken as she was absent the morning that her class had theirs done. I could not figure out why she was so worried and concerned about being alone when they took her photograph. She kept asking over and over whether other children would be there and what if she ended up being all by herself.


After explaining the situation to her several times something shifted. I realized that she thought she had missed taking the class picture with all of her classmates together and that she thought she was going to be standing on a stage posing for her class picture all alone. When I explained that she had missed the solo portraits and not the class pictures she got a big grin on her face. She said, “Mommy, I was all worried for nothing.”  We both breathed a sigh of relief and hugged each other.  In the car on the way to school she kept saying over and over, “I didn’t understand.  Now I feel so much better!”


I reminded Ania that even grownups do that to themselves sometimes. They get so worked up over things they have either misunderstood or things that in the end never happen. Eventually they realize that worrying is not only unproductive, but optional as well.


How much time do you spend worrying about things that never happen?  How much energy do you put into making up stories about people, things or experiences that not only rob you of precious time but also usually prove themselves to be false?


Imagine how enjoyable life could be if you were to give your “Inner Worry Wart” a vacation. As my coach likes to say, “Let her/him go make the bed while you go off and have some fun.” I like that idea.


Have a worry-free week!

Carole's Latest Book Recommendation

Inner Outings: The Diarist's Deck of 33 Cards and Book of Exploration (Paperback)
by Charlene Geiss, Claudia Jessup

Charlene Geiss’s collage style of journaling is not only fun to do but draws from a variety of media. Newsweek has reported on the therapeutic benefits of confessional writing, and writing and art together are able to pull out a deeper range of complexity and personal expression from the journal keeper than words alone. Geiss and veteran writer Claudia Jessup created this set of 33 cards, each corresponding to a question that prompts the journaler’s imagination. The Book of Exploration elaborates upon each card and suggests writing and drawing techniques to plumb the depths of the journaler’s experience toward rich self-exploration. Black-and-white illustrations throughout add to this tool for creative journal keeping.. From Book Details.
