Follow your inspiration when the mind is stormy

Sometimes the mind gets stressed about the future. At these times life becomes difficult and we may turn to our usual distractions, or ways of pushing down the bad feelings.
Rather than repeating those self-destructive habits we learned from others, we can find a way through the stress and confusion.
We can search for a safe thing to hold onto, while our mind passes through its storm of conflicts and impossible beliefs. We are not our minds and we dont have to believe we are doomed. We are awareness, and we can be guided by our mind, or by what inspires us.
No matter the strength of the minds storm, we can hold onto our inspiration. Turning our awareness to what we are inspired to do at this moment, we can distance ourselves from the minds storm and not fall into believing its message of hopelessness.
Once we are reminded of our source of inspiration, we stop feeding the storm in our minds and we can observe and learn about the beliefs we can choose to change.
