THE MIND BOGGLES!!
Coaching Videos & Tips - August 18 2022 No. 770
Do you care too much? Care too much that it's got to the point that you're concerned or anxious? Care so much that it implies that you don't trust yourself? You need to throw caution to the wind... mindfully!
We can get awfully attached to what we think we want; awfully attached to the notion that we know how to get it; awfully attached to the point of obsession... I must have it (what ever "it" might be).
When we want something so much, we disable ourselves - we get kidnapped by an attachment that divorces us from being who we can be, an attachment that blinds us to what we actually need to do today.

Forget what you think you want and let yourself take you by the hand on an adventure that your wanting mind couldn't imagine. Detach yourself from the energy sapping thoughts that question you, that question your deservedness, question the "how" and the "when".
Forget all those questions and attachment - for the answer will find you.
Choose to do something carefree today - it doesn't matter how apparently insignificant what it is... there's no such thing as an insignifcant now.
Don't concern yourself with what others might think about you - they don't because they're not all there.
And never forget who the most important person in your life is...

How about caring too much about getting cancer.
Yes, we know people who have obsessed about getting cancer who... get the cancer they've wished for!
Remember: healthy mind, healthy body. Or, put another way, if your mind is ill-at-ease, your body will suffer dis-ease.
