Sometimes when I hold Pepper, I feel my mind start to fill up with worries. I have to remind myself what is true right now in this very moment.
Right now we are breathing.
Right now we are happy.
Right now it is well.
The majority of my worries are not true.
We don’t know what the future holds. They might come true some day but right now, they are just figments of my imagination.
So take a deep breath with me, say a prayer, remove all of the “what-ifs” from your mind, remind yourself what is true, and enjoy the now.
“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2
