“Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.”
― Arthur Roche
This is so true. Often we have one thing to worry about and a dozen that are going well. And what do we do? We concentrate of thinking about the worrisome thing, and eventually it is all we see. All the good things in life vanish from our minds because our mind can only concentrate on one thing at a time. And a thought we keep thinking tends to turn into what we perceive as truth. Suddenly that one worrisome thing has turned our whole world into a its likeness. Nothing feels good anymore. And getting out of that spiral of negative feelings takes some doing... So do yourself a favour and concentrate on the good things too. Take the habit of writing done one good thing that happened in your day. Every day. Use a notebook, your calendar, your mobile phone. Anything. Just write it down. And read later what you have written. You'd be surprised to see how many wonderful, joyful things you have in your life. It's just a question of learning to notice them.
