"Interrupt anxiety with gratitude."
I saw this quote (on Pinterest, where else) and decided it will be my mantra for 2015. I have this habit of only appreciating something for a moment before playing it over in my mind and starting to think about how I could have done better or how something great could turn into something bad. I'll be enjoying a lazy Saturday morning lingering over coffee and then anxiety hits me and I start to think about the laundry list of things I could be doing: working on the blog (that turns into beating myself up about blog content), cleaning our apartment (that turns into thinking, how am I almost 29 and forever running out of clean socks?), you get the point. Even at work, when I do well on a project I'm somehow unable to dwell on nice words from my boss before I'm thinking about how I could have done better and reprimanding myself for mistakes along the way.
So 2015 is the year I am going to really try to interrupt these anxious thoughts with grateful ones.
What's your resolution? I'd love to know.
