what is a worry ?

Worry

is a feeling you are experiencing now

as a feeling in your body

as a result of a thought you have just had

about something that may or may not happen


that thought was followed by a thought that involved you


and then perhaps another thought


and with each thought

the muscles in your body tightened up

starting in your stomach

leading up into your chest


making your breath more shallow

depriving your body of oxygen


your heart started beating faster to try to compensate


now your body is reinforcing the thought

that there is something going wrong

some danger to be fended off


it starts to produce the chemicals necessary

for fight or flight


everything is saying that the original thought was true.


But it was only a thought

that appeared briefly in your mind


that you believed it and held in place

from your current way of seeing


but that was just one way of looking at it

that’s all


like

touch wood

for good luck


thoughts come and go


but you are always here

keep coming back into your here and now

how does that feel, now ?
