Let's Chill

It's no secret that anxiety along with stress and I are on a first name basis.  I am always weary about what's around the next corner.  To the point where it keeps me up at night.  Everything is good right now, but I find myself having a hard time enjoying it.  Fear sometimes keeps me grounded.  So as we headed to the beach on Sunday to get some much needed family time, I had a nice little conversation with myself.  I felt the anxiety, stress and fear penetrate my armor.  I looked out the window and started to stress over what was around the next corner, figuratively and literally.  Then out of nowhere this voice that was so tiny, got stronger.  Not to mention louder.

Chill Out and Shut It!

Message received.  Loud and clear.      

I'm glad I listened.  I had an awesome weekend.  I spent some time with some good friends and spent a lovely Sunday with the two loves of my life.  Even today I started to feel anxious and gently reminded myself to chill out.  So far it seems to be working.  I'm sure it wont always so for now I am enjoying my time.  Clover is tucked in bed.  Hubs is teaching his online class and I have two free hours to do whatever I want.  Enjoying a nice glass of California Raspberry and a Brie cheese platter with dried cherries and pecans.  Not to mention I have full control of the remote!
