Recently, I noticed that I was feeling fearful; fearful about the future. This went on for a few days.
My husband and I were out for a walk and I was talking to him about my fears. Suddenly, I stopped. I had an AHA moment. I realised that the fear was due to something I had heard on the news. I also realised that I was using my imagination to catastrophise!! Oops...
I am a very visual person. So, I was actually visualising myself going through what I had seen on TV. As soon as I realised this, I was able to let the fear go. I decided that I would use my imagination constructively.
We are all creative beings. If only we channelled this creativity into imagining and making wonderful lives for ourselves and others instead of giving in to fearful thoughts, how different our world could be!!
