Kimberism: "You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith." Mary Manin Morrissey Ashley the young woman who lives with us was telling me her childhood plunger woes. I laughed as she relayed her father’s distain for her childhood propensity to overload the toilet with excessive amounts of toilet paper. With exasperation she said, “You know there is a fine line between smooth sailing and backing up the whole plumbing system with one extra sheet of paper!” I gave her a nod of agreement. I too had a child that kept our plunger in use.
The line of conversation had me pondering the other areas in our lives that get stopped up from excess. The area that readily comes to mind is the excess of worry. Worry is sure stopper upper! Worry shuts down all systems and keeps us blocked and over flowing with the castoffs of anxiety, fear, suspicion, ill-health, and distrust.
If you are like most of us, you need regular maintenance to make sure you’re not getting bogged down with the blockage of worry.
Here are 4 simple steps to keep things moving smoothly!
- Ask yourself if you are holding onto an assumption, or interpretation about life from a past story that needs to be flushed.
- Master your fears and worry by reframing your thinking.
- Exercise faith by relying in Someone greater than yourself to create possibilities in your circumstances.
- Act regularly by flushing the unwanted residue of worry in a timely manner, so you don’t have a backed-up system.
