This summer I am getting married AND moving one month before the wedding. All during a pandemic. Cue the image above.
I have spent my fair share worrying about how it will play out. But ya know what?...It's exhausting.
Worrying is exhausting.
Most of the things we worry about don't even come to fruition. So why is it so hard to let go?
If you're anything like me it's because you long for control. But control over life is something we will never have. So what's the point?
As hard as it is, there is such a great peace that comes from trusting that things will work out the way they are supposed to - even if it doesn't look the way you thought.
Tips for Building your Trust Muscle:
1.) Awareness is always the first step. Are you wasting time and energy worrying about things that are out of your control? Think of all you could do if you focused that energy into something that better serves you.
2.) Check yourself every time you fall into worrying. Worrying is a habit that you have built. You have to deconstruct that habit by replacing it with better thoughts.
3.) Use the mantra "Everything is always working out for me." Say this to yourself multiple times a day until you start to believe it.
4.) Focus on what you have now and what you're grateful for to put yourself in a happier mental state.
5.) Stay diligent and consistent with replacing your thoughts. The more you focus on thinking better thoughts, the more natural those trusting thoughts will be.
What are you stressed about that you need to let go of?
✨God has a plan for your life. Everything IS working out for you. Even in the hard times.✨
