I often have a sense of urgency about
- returning phone calls,
- answering emails,
- getting tasks (including taxes) done,
- running errands,
- expressing myself,
- clearing up misunderstandings,
- responding to requests,
- correcting mistakes,
- changing/improving things, and
- so much more.
Today, I have a sense of urgency about finishing this post, because I need to get my INR level tested at 8:15 before I go into work.
I often have a sense that my sense of urgency adds to anxiety and stress. If I had more sense, I’d probably let go of that sense of urgency, take a breath, and slow down.
I’m taking a breath and slowing down to share images I sensed yesterday.
Ann would say:
- be aware of triggers (things that increase your anxiety),
- notice and practice whatever reduces your anxiety (including self-care, being in the moment, forgiveness, etc.),
- do what you love, and
- listen to music you enjoy.
What would you say about all this?
I do have a sense of urgency about expressing gratitude to all who help me create these posts and — of course! — to you.
