Having a worry cave with chocolates
Havi’s blog “The Fluent Self” is one of the blogs in my reader which I really follow. That means I read every blog post, and quite often I read one and it speaks to me, loud and clear.
I have just read “Dear part of me who thinks that if something good happens, something bad must follow”. At the end of that post Havi offers the worrying part of her a worry cave as one part of her internal space with lots of cocoa.
In some sense I often feel similar – I am definitely of the worrying kind. Lower your expectations in order not to be disappointed. Don’t let your dreams fly too high otherwise you fall deep. I somehow know that worrying in this way can be very limitating, and I’d rather would be without it.
Having read the blog post I now know that I won’t have to suppress my worrying me – I will give her her room, with lots of chocolate in my case. I will have her covered in warm blankets. But there will be still space for dreaming, for flying high.
