Most of us are afraid of something. Boogeymen are all around us and, just in case we can’t drum up enough of our own, we can always watch the News or The History Channel and it’s ‘Doom & Gloom’ shows about the end of the world.
But fear is always about something imagined. As I sit here and type, nothing is frightening or scary. However if I let my thoughts wander to an hour from now, to tomorrow, or to next year, then the fear can take hold. Fear is always about something that might (or most likely will not ) happen some time in the future.
So, whenever I feel anxious or fearful about anything, I just remind myself that nothing scary is happening right now, and remind myself that I am ‘blessed’ with a very fertile imagination.
