Trading In Problems

Here’s a way to lighten our load:

  • As sure as you awaken each morning, you will be the recipient of a new problem or burden.
  • Few people say “hey, I’ve got another problem to deal with, which one of the other problems I’m wrestling with can I let go of”.
  • Instead, we keep allowing ourselves to pile them on as quickly as they come.
  • Trading in an old problem that cannot be solved right now for a newer one is the ultimate act of letting go of anxiety.

All of us can handle a given number of problems, but none of us can be burdened with everything that comes along so introducing this act of choice makes a difference worth trying.
