Power Yoga Playlist – “Everything Is OK”

Everything Is OK

I am a huge worrywart.  My husband can fall asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow, whereas I stay up tossing and turning replaying events from the present day or stressing over my to-do list for the next day.  I worry about big things, like whether I am raising my daughter “right,” or when we will be able to find (or afford) a house to call “home.”  I worry the night before I have to teach class, even though I have taught many classes and know I have a music playlist and class theme prepared.  Then there are those why-am-I-stressing-about-this things like worrying about earthquakes or accidents happening.

We all have worries on our mind (some more than others), but most worries emerge over events that are in the future and are usually out of our control.  It is ok to worry, but not to the point that it consumes your mind and takes you out of the present moment.  If worry creates positive action, then that is productive and helpful.  However, if worry is over something that cannot be changed, then it is useless and should be let go of.  I, myself, am working on tackling my worries by acknowledging them when they arise, exhaling them away with a conscious effort, and replacing those worries with reminders that everything will turn out fine.  It is an active, and very deliberate, process that I am working on in my own life.

My playlist this week includes songs that remind us that everything is ok.  No matter what challenges life hands us, we need to let go of our worries and focus on everything in the present moment that is good and beautiful.  You are strong and you will make it.  You will be ok.

“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how… The artist never entirely knows.  We guess.  We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”

~ Agnes de Mille
