My mind has been feeling a bit mucky as of late. Truth be told, I am stressed about this weekend. Every year, for about 15 years now, my family has gone on this 3 day rafting trip. I went for many years until witnessing a horrible accident 4 years ago and have not been back since. I just can't do it. However, my sister, brother and Dad still go and every year I have a pit in my stomach for about a week until I know that they are all home safely. Everyone tells me to not feel this way, but sometimes you just cannot help those darn feelings!
I am trying very hard to not let myself get too carried away with "what ifs" but it is easier said than done. In an effort to calm my nerves, I like to look at things that make me happy. This has been a coping mechanism I have had since I was a little girl and it still works well today. I think, when I look at lovely images, I put myself in the photo - like I am there in that beautiful setting, and it calms me down. Here are the photos that are helping me today:
Apparently I have an thing for chairs, eh?
What are some things you do to relax when feeling a bit on edge?
