The known and the unknown. The familiar and the unfamiliar.
I like to tell myself that I’m all laid-back and easy-going, but the truth is, I know I have some issues with control.
I am not a controlling person (eg: I don’t try to control other people), but a lot of my anxieties and fears are based on things that I can not control; the sorts of things that can work my stomach into a knot, sap my energy and consume my focus.
When I stop and think about each worry though, I begin to realize that a huge number of them never come to be.
I’ve let myself spend so much time in that space between the ‘now’ and the ‘then’, that I’ve let the present slip into the past.
Living fully in the present doesn’t leave a lot of room for worry about the future.
