People who have injuries or disabilities always talk about taking life one day at time or in sports they are “day-to-day”.  I had an appointment with my psychiatrist yesterday and he ask me how was feeling and I said “just trying to take one day at a time”  My parents and family are always telling me you just have to take it one day at a time.  As I was driving home I got to thinking about this philosophy.  My conclusion is that it is a crock of you know what!!

Fear, anxiety and depression are not caused because we are living or thinking one day at a time.  If you are at work, you are thinking, when do I get out of here.  Or, when is my next day off or vacation scheduled?  If you are sick or have a disability, you are thinking I can’t wait until I get over this or when will I ever get a break?

Today’s human being is not designed to live in the moment.  It’s always, what are we doing next?  My question is, how to we minimize this anxiety or fear in everyday life?  It’s a topic I get to think about a lot these days, and I was hoping to get some feedback from everyone.  So, make a comment on this blog, write a message on Facebook or Twitter, send me and email (mattrx99@hotmail.com), or if you have my number text or call me.

Have a great day and God bless,

Matt

  1. I can see exactly what you are saying, but maybe just set small goals for yourself each week. Pray for strength to get through each day. Try to focus on positive things in your life no matter how hard it may seem right now. Be strong for the kids. I am praying for you and your family. ❤️

    1. Thank you so very much. Small goals are what I’m looking for. Maybe not days, weeks, months….Hard to live day to day.
