I know my day is just beginning but sometimes I have to write more than one entry a day. Today is one of those days…like yesterday. I know I have not written in my diary as much as I once did in the past and I do not have any excuse for it except for time and the need to do so. No excuses allowed. I know I can find time to write in my diary every day and why not start right now as the year 2017 leaves us forever and 2018 comes for 12 months tomorrow, January 1, 2018. I am not going to complain about how fast 2017 has come and gone although I have definitely done my fair share of complaining…mainly things I have no control over. I have to yet learn or control my complaining nature and live life to the fullest of what life I have from day to day. I think too far in advance, anxiety will find its way into my world. I have found a website worth reading about anxiety and how it can affect anyone’s life when dealing with anxiety and overthinking everything. https://www.healthyplace.com/blogs/anxiety-schmanxiety/2015/12/anxiety-and-over-thinking-everything/ is a very interesting and awesome read. Although the internet is not always the best place to do research at times, I do have to admit that learning about myself to help myself and others is worth sharing. Also, with anxiety, I deal with being worrisome … overthinking things during my anxious mode. I found an awesome website about how to stop overthinking and being worrisome. https://www.helpguide.org/articles/anxiety/how-to-stop-worrying.htm… … Why not start on the last day of 2017, right? I believe so. Worry, anxiety, worrying about things that we/I/you have no control over can begin right now as the new beginning of 2018.
Okay, my day was wonderful from start to finish. Bedtime is looming around the corner here in a few minutes. I tried to lay in bed and nap a little bit this afternoon after getting home from church because I was feeling a little tired from being up a little earlier than my usual 7 AM alarm or wake up time, but that did not really happen. Personal cares began at 4:45 PM and afterwards we watched TV together for a while before she left to go home to be with her husband and family that decided to visit.
