MYTH: Keeping BUSY is helping women with anxiety.
Millions of women think that if they keep busy, they will get through THIS DAY, somehow hoping that TOMORROW the anxiety will magically disappear from their lives.
But instead of waking up with a peace of mind, they wake up feeling anxious (day after day) and they go to sleep the same way.
Keeping busy is what they have been doing for so many years, and keeping busy is all they know.
Instead of living life, they are making it through the day popping Xanax, looking forward to the evening so they can take an Ambien just to get a few short hours of sleep.
Instead of creating memories with their children, husbands and friends, they are irritated, snapping at their kids, getting angry at their husbands and politely declining their friends’ invitations for social gatherings ..because they are “too busy”.
They are trying EVERY POSSIBLE THING OUT THERE to stay ON TOP OF THINGS:
* they try to organize themselves better (and their loved ones, their house and their pets),
* they try to be more efficient….
* they download the latest “productivity app” onto their phone
* they purchase “How to split your TO-DO LIST, into 3 shorter TO-DO LISTS so you can actually get things done” Self-help Guide
But no matter how much they try, how they try to “better themselves”, life keeps being just busy for them.
The ONE THING that those women don’t know is that keeping busy is just a symptom.
Yes, it’s just a symptom. It’s not a problem.
It’s a symptom of hidden (deeply hidden) fear that is controlling their thoughts, health and life.
Keeping busy is how their mind tells them “they are in control”.
Keeping busy is how their mind tells them “they are on top of things”.
Keeping busy is how their mind tells them “they can handle everything”.
Keeping busy is how their mind tells them “they can avoid any bad situation”
The truth is …..THEY HAVE NO CONTROL OVER ANYTHING AND ANYONE.
These women have NO CONTROL.
No matter how busy they are keeping ….
No matter how much they are trying to control their lives (jobs, kids, husbands, friends, and everything that is happening around them)….
No matter how hard they are trying to answer all “what if” scenarios (and prevent the bad ones from happening),
If this is you, I want you to know that the MIND IS INFINITE and POWERFUL.
It will give you infinite reasons and things to worry about, to be busy with and to control.
You can’t win over it. Not the way you have been trying to (and I know you have been trying really hard over the years).
If you keep reacting to everything that happens or is said to you, you are not in control of your experience and life…
…YOU ARE BEING CONTROLLED BY FEARS.
How do I know?
Because I was there.
And I didn’t know what exactly was going on until I hit rock bottom by getting A REALLY BIG SLAP IN MY “I’M SMART, EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL, LIFE IS JUST BUSY AND I WILL FIGURE IT OUT” face.
I’m sharing my story below so you don’t need to go through what I went through,
So you don’t need to find yourself fighting for your life as your body gets completely depleted by the fears and anxiety,
So your kids don’t need to be home scared to death, wondering what’s wrong with mommy,
So your husband doesn’t need to pray to God that you survive.
Yes, the MIND IS INFINITE and POWERFUL,
and until you remove the fears that your mind is holding onto like a heavy-duty sticking glue,
nothing will change.
But when you do then THE REAL LIFE WILL BEGIN!
The JOY of being in the moment,
The JOY of seeing things you completely missed before,
The JOY of creating amazing, happy memories with your family,
The JOY of trusting yourself and life.
