Not being anxious

Told the congregations about my Lenten vow – to give up anxiety – and was amazed to find many people wanting to join in. Perhaps it is a symptom of our society nowadays, or maybe we are rendered overly anxious by seeing so much of the bad side of life via the media. Maybe we should start an alternative AA group – Anxieties Anonymous – on second thoughts it would be better to be called Anxieties Non-anonymous. I’ll let you know how it goes from time to time.

Today is another beautiful, bright day here in Dalamory. Him Behind the Wheel has put out the garden loungers to warm in the sun, Misty and Fox are both enjoying the foretaste of spring, and I am taking a long time to decide whether to make coffee or the beds. I suspect the coffee will win.

    Greetings from California! On the subject of reducing anxiety, Tamar Chansky has a wonderful book for parents, “Freeing Your Child from Anxiety”. Her approach and technique would work well for adults, too. It’s available from Amazon & the UK Amazon may have it.

    Hi…It’s a small world but regarding your giving up ” anxiety” for lent, a few days ago I posted on my blog, that I was giving up “negativity” for lent. It seems that anxiety and negativity go hand in hand.

    Thanks Liz – I will hunt the book out. I had not thought of self-help as a means to giving up anxiety. Stupidity I suppose.

    Hi Chancy – caught your blog and will add it to my favourites. You sound as if you are turning into a very positive person. I’ll add giving up negativity to my daily thoughts.
