The 24 hour rule

Lately I've been confronted with a few issues that have put knots in my stomach and caused me to over analyze everything. I've learned that if I give it 24 hours of overthinking, one good cry and an honest prayer before bedtime, I feel 100% better the next morning.

Maybe it's just me, but when it comes to my headspace, I'm my own worst enemy. I create situations that may never exist, and from that arise problems that may never prove to be issues. In the end, I am causing the knots in my stomach from problems that only God knows if they're headed my way or not. And IF they are headed my way, it's because they're supposed to. Because they'll make me stronger.

Clouding your headspace with 'what ifs' and 'maybes' makes you more vulnerable to hurt, but also self destruction. If you're telling yourself possible outcomes that are negative, you're only doubting your self worth in the made up situation you created.

I have found a way to process the overthinking that I need to get out of my system, as well as get rid of the knots in my stomach that seem to incapacitate me. I've started allowing myself 24 hours. 24 hours to play with as many and all 'what if' situations that I can come up with. That gives me time to talk to my best friend about the crazy things going on in my head, and then allow myself to let those ideas leave my head and go into the universe. We all deserve to be living in a healthy and positive headspace. Unfortunately, we are stuck in our own heads, and we listen to ourselves talk more than anyone else. Be sure to make them good, positive and healthy thoughts!
