A few days ago I woke up anxious about something. Given our current COVID-19 state of affairs, I just couldn’t see how a particular scenario was going to turn out well. I started going down a nasty path in my mind. Basically catastrophizing.
Then the thought occurred to me that in my wildest dreams I couldn’t have imagined this COVID-19 world that we find ourselves in. So how could I possibly expect to know the outcome of my worrisome situation.
I can’t know.
It reminded me that I wrote a blog about this very thing – “There are just so many variables that I can’t even imagine … How limiting to assume that if I can’t imagine it, it’s not possible!”
Now, when I start to get anxious about how things are going to turn out I remind myself that just because I can’t imagine it doesn’t mean it’s not possible. I think about my experience in the blog and it helps me drop the worry and move forward. I hope it helps you too.
