Do fear and anxiety create certain types of thoughts, or is it the other way around?
I sometimes wake up thinking about all the material possessions that will have to be dealt with when I die; the undeserved load it will be on someone if I don’t “take care of business” beforehand. I think about getting started putting those affairs in order and getting rid of all the possessions I can live without. I then feel burdened and afraid I won’t have the energy or time to do it all.
It’s a good thing I have something to grin at first thing every morning when I look into the bathroom mirror at my hair sticking up in all kinds of wild conglomerations.
