Catastrophic Thoughts

I believe I have to continually think about the what ifs to ensure I don’t overlook something or to prevent unpleasant surprises and control the outcome. The problem is, it doesn’t serve me well and takes me down a deeper, darker path.

Yesterday my happiness fell with the thought that all this goodness will come to an end.  That happens a lot.  I experience great days, or even weeks, then I feel like it’s too good to be true and wait for the bad to happen.

My logic side of my brain tells me statistically, I’m do for a down turn.  My intuition tells me law of attraction will cause these thoughts to become my reality.  How do I stop it all and just live a happy life?

Amy Morin from Very Well Mind, suggests playing the “catastrophic” scenario out and reflecting how horrible it would be if it happened.  So…

What would happen if something bad would happen?  Actually, when I play it out in my head, the result is eventually I’ll pull myself out of it like I always do.

We all survive, even you, reader, survive and are brought to where you are today.

Knowing I have always survived with what life has thrown at me, I am able to let go of the fear that bad days are coming.  If they come, I know they will also go.

I will always survive until the day I die.

Weeks of life left:  1,170
