Why "Let Go of What You Can't Control" Doesn't Work (and what do do about it!)
Welcome back to Consider Yourself Hugged! Click here to listen to Episode 108. (***Disclaimer: I provide these notes as a skeleton for the show - nothing fancy 😄)
Apologies for the sound quality of this week's episode! I was walking my dogs yesterday and just had to record right there, right then!
You've heard it, right? "Let go of what you can't control." Seems simple. But for those of us who struggle with anxiety and worry, it is anything but simple. Join me today as I talk about why that doesn't work for us and how we can work toward letting go.
I've mentioned that October has been the busiest month of my life, so I'll tell you now these show notes are skinny! And you know what? I won't apologize because, like you, I believe I am trying hard, working faithfully, and doing the best I can to juggle my current responsibilities. Thank you for the grace I know you're giving me 😘
Here's the basics for today. I'll share personal revelations (as always!) and some practices that have helped me tremendously over the past couple of days, including:
Rely on your life system/faith.
Take your thoughts captive.
Give it to God.
Speak your gratitude.
Focus outward through prayer or service.
Thanks for joining today! As we’ve always asked in the past, please pass the show link along to your friends and subscribe, download, and review wherever you are listening. If you’re a woman and you haven’t joined our private FB group A Place for Women, please do that now! It’ll be your source of encouragement.
And until next time, Consider Yourself Hugged 😘🤗
