As many of you know, I always aim to be as honest as possible with everyone, especially you, my reader friend! There are obviously certain things that I prefer to keep semi-private about my life, just until (or if) I'm ready to share them with other people. I've shared certain struggles with panic-attacks with you here on my blog, as well as certain other fears and phobias.
One of these phobias that is super annoying is the fear of getting sick. I've probably mentioned before that I get nervous about germs and all that stuff - (the amount of hand sanitize that i use is ridiculous.) It's kind of funny sometimes, but through all of it, I feel like I've learned a lot.
Namely, I've learned to really take my own advice about focusing on the current day, and not worrying about the future so much. When you work in an industry that has so many unknowns - such as entertainment, - I feel that the brain tries to create certain aspects of life that we have a sense of "control" over. For me, my mind seems to obsess about germs and all of these things - making me feel like I have "control" over my health. And to some degree, I do have some control over health, and avoiding germs. I don't do any drugs, (yes, I have a few mai tais here and there!) but, I take really good care of myself. The rest however, is essentially out of my control. Why should I worry about getting sick, when today, I am healthy? My friend Liz always says, "don't worry about things. You'll deal with them when they happen." Very good advice!!
Anyways, this is a sort of random post about my inner thoughts I suppose haha, but my POINT is that I do hope all of you focus on the present day and try not to worry about things that are largely out of our control. Focus on NOW! And speaking of NOW, it is the best time to follow your heart and your dreams. Click here :)
