Question of the Day

What is a thing you have successfully worked on yourself to improve?

Worrying. The sort of worrying about things that is distinct from anxiety; the worrying that is very much in my control. I used to worry incessantly about everything, allowing things to spin 'round and 'round in my head. Now when I start to worry, I assess whether it's something in my control. If it is, I turn my thoughts to what I can do to alleviate that worry. If it's not, I give myself permission to let it go, as much as I am able.
