Trials and troubles come every day, we accept them and then move on. We may worry about the challenges and outcomes involved in the impending endeavor of amends. Perhaps we have been projecting on how future encounters will play out but this is not helpful. We may be anxious or concerned about the outcome of a particular amend. These thoughts are really negative prayers and they interfere with the process. More importantly when we worry about outcomes we have gotten ahead of ourselves. Let us focus on the task at hand and let the future take care of itself. When worry or anxiety come let us recognize that this is just the mind wandering, remind ourselves that it’s no big deal, let them go without judgment and then move on.
