Last night I gave a talk titled “The Age of Anxiety” and it was SO GOOD! If you missed it, don’t worry… the recording will be rolling out by the middle of next week so be sure to look for the MTL Podcast on iTunes.
I wanted to mention two things from last night...
First, I mentioned that I am a huge fan of herbal supplements when it comes to anxiety. Afterwards, some people asked what I meant by what I said. Looking back, I can only imagine that everyone was wondering to what I was referring because of where I live... right? : ) So to be clear, this picture is what I take on a daily basis to help with my anxiety, and I feel it has really helped me. For more of my story, listen to The Age of Anxiety on iTunes.
Second, I can't stress enough using GOOD ingredients to cook up peace in your life. Finding healthy distractions as well as ways to care for yourself and reinforce the truth about who it is you are and to ground yourself in the present moment of reality. SO many times UNreality and irrational thinking can grab ahold of you. One of the GOOD ingredients I use is my past stories. I have them on hand and ready to go so I can remember all the times before when I made it through. Times when the worst case scenario did not happen even though I was so sure it would... AND times when it did happen, and I am still here. : )
Those stories give me strength...
they remind me that I am in the hands of God...
and that tomorrow will come.
Peace be with you today, this week and this month.
