In the battle between worry and connection, choose connection.

Worry only pretends to be necessary.

A few years ago I decided to give up worry.

I cut it from my emotional diet.

Worry was driving me crazy.

I was worried about…

👉 Bedtime.
👉 Keeping the house clean.
👉 The kids fighting.
👉 My 12-year-old’s math grade.
👉 My husband’s work presentation.
👉 Getting the laundry done.
👉 Making sure the chores got finished.

I drew a line in the sand.

I wanted to show up calm and connected with my kids no matter what.

Worrying was getting in the way.

Anytime I start getting worried now…

I notice it.
Take a breath.
Get present.
Try to release it.

I say to myself…

❝ Andee, be here now.
Get out of your head and into your body.
Come back to the moment.
Be in this timeline.
All you have is now.
You are safe.
Worry doesn’t help.
I release you worry, and let you go.❞

Worry isn’t useful…see it, acknowledge it, get present, and let it go.

Use your energy on something that really matters.

Like connecting with your kids right now.
