I read an inspirational devotion every morning. It really spoke to me today when it quoted "do not be anxious about anything" and was directed toward those who are "weighed down with worry".
I realized I have been worrying a lot lately, fretting over others. A lot of it is about wantint to control others or change them which if I think rationally about it, is not possible. When I get anxious, I overeat and avoid exercise, getting literally "weighed down".
Instead of planning how to "fix' situations or other people, I want to accept them as they are, let them be and take care of myself, today, in this moment. It's not being selfish - it's honoring myself and worthy of my effort and I will appreciate it.
