Today on the way home from a shopping trip, I was thinking how I need to concentrate on moving toward uncertainty, rather than running away.
Then a few hours later, I learned that a Christmas gift I'd ordered isn't expected to arrive until Monday (for some reason it's been hanging out in a Fed Ex facility in Washington State for 4 days- weird).
But I went straight to a bad OCD place. I'm not actually that worried about it not arriving in time for Christmas. It was instead a generic "fear of uncertainty." I just wanted to feel certain about when it would get here and the condition it would arrive in. And then I started to ruminate.
Which of course is exactly the opposite of running toward uncertainty. Ha. So I'm letting it go.
