Being Still in the Wait

I love the verse that's so artistically designed all over the Internet, Be Still.

(Side note, because I love side notes, I love that this is a perfect example of something that is based in Christianity but applies in a non-religious sense too).

I am reminded right now, in this moment, to be still in my mind. Being still doesn't have to mean physically. I don't have to stop what I'm doing. In fact, if I were to stop what I was physically doing, working, then that would be a real cause for freaking out. Right now, what I need is to be still mentally. To not let my mind race in anxiety and worry about the future. Be still, quiet that mind that will not stop. I don't want to let my doubts and fears control my actions and emotions.

Sometimes I crave clarity so bad, it hurts. My mind spins with anxiety as I worry about how everything is going to work out. Miraculously, I remind myself, be still. Let my mind be still. Let tomorrow worry about itself. Which doesn't mean that I am procrastinating things I need to do. I'm doing what I can and I'm not going to work myself into a tizzy about things that are completely out of my control. It's important to prepare, do your best and then trust, if it's meant to be, the rest will fall into place.
