Do you let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy????

I am always worrying about things...it make my head ache! I am always worrying about things…it make my head ache!

When you are going about your normal day, what is your mind doing? Is it with you or is it against you? I don’t know about you but my mind is constantly chatting. The only time it is not is when: I am asleep; I am really focused on a task or when I am listening to others. The rest of the time my mind is tuned into “my own internal chatter station”.

So how could this be good???

This old post is very true in these times when there is so much uncertainty…some things we see as bad but also many things that we can see coming out of this strange year as good…………

Life can be great and quite frankly at times it  can really suck! They say that we are never given more than we can’t handle but I know at times, we feel like we are being tested to the nth degree and have no idea how we might get through.

Now a little faith….. in love , in life, in humanity is what gets me through.
