DECISIONS, DECISIONS, DECISIONS ??
Picture this: A building is on fire. A mother and baby are hanging from the window of the second floor as thick, black smoke billows from the opening.
There is no one around but you.
In that moment, will you take the time to think or will you act? An inability to make a decision in dire situations can be devastating. Is it any less devastating when indecision and anxiety affect our daily life even if no danger is present? We are constantly making choices i.e. do I need a new car, which one suits my needs and of course the color choices. Should I buy organic veggies, where to have lunch, right down to the simple, latte or mocha, with or without cream. Admittedly some of these choices are not life-altering but often by day's end the accumulation of small unresolved issues clutter the mind and without realizing it we experience an unsettling feeling like we're standing in front of that burning building. Overwhelmed.

You are not operating at your fullest if you feel worried about what might happen next and can't see a way to quiet your mind.
You deserve your full potential to focus the mind so you can trust your choices and feel good about them.
For people struggling with anxiety, it is important to know that the mother in the example wasn't asking you to put out the fire, she was just wanting you to catch the baby.
