I've always been plagued by worries (or caused my own plague of worries!) about the future, This seems to have increased over time, instead of diminished, despite the inner work I do. I believe I have periods of living without fear or worry, but they seem fewer and far between. That said, I am grateful for the awareness that I have future-fear thoughts. The awareness helps me realize I can choose to remain in the fear, or I can turn my thoughts to more positive, action-oriented, calming thoughts. And if I can stay in gratitude, the fear will not become a self-fulfilling prophecy! With this knowledge, I am grateful for my comfy, hygge home, and my medium-satisfaction job. I want to remain settled here for another contract cycle at least, and get a sense of stability and security in my life, save more, travel more, increase my health and well-being. I am grateful for the opportunity, and I am grateful for my home and work that allows me to live in my current manner of comfort.
