When assailed by worries it is helpful
to take a few moments to calm down
using deep breathing and/or meditation.
Then list all the things you can think of
that could go wrong or cause a problem.
Divide them into two separate columns.
Column One: those you can prevent,
prepare for, minimise or else control.
Write down exactly what you will do
regarding each item to neutralise it.
Column Two: those you cannot do
anything about. Allow yourself enough
time to calmly acknowledge each one.
Then let it go, visualising yourself
breathing it out of your system.
Repeat as many times as required.
THESE FURROWED BROWS
You can spot thinkers
But what preoccupies them
Is it of value?
