Finding Stillness - Affirmations

Finding Stillness is a weekly series on ways I find stillness without meditating. follow the tag to read the other posts.

I woke up this morning with my mind in a frenzy. This happens a lot. I walked to the bathroom and panicked over everything. 

And then I learned how amazing this Stillness journey has been for me this year. I sat down, took a deep breath and said: 

I am healthy
I am well
I am always safe

The thoughts still swarmed. 

So I took a deep breath again and repeated the words. I smiled and I was still again. 

Even now, a couple of hours after I woke up, I smile still. 

It all was a good reminder that thoughts are just thoughts. I can choose to accept them or I can choose to live with stillness and love in focus.

I choose the latter :)
