Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way and that so many things that one goes worrying about are no importance whatsoever. ~ Isak Dinesen
Are you a worrier? We all are to a certain extent, but some of us are more pessimistic than others, and when we worry, it’s always the worst possible thing that comes first to mind. Worrying is a great thief of time. I have a good friend who can soar from distress to disaster in five seconds, and it has caused her no end of sorrow. Now that she recognizes the pattern and can stop herself in midflight with a gentle reminder, she experiences much more inner harmony even under difficult circumstances. Often when we stew, we think that we’re doing something positive about the problem; at least we’re thinking about it. Instead, we’ve set off an escalating spiral that can ruin an entire day – for ourselves and those in our vicinity.
If you find yourself fretting over an issue, instead of working yourself into a frenzy, STOP! Now think about everything that’s humming along nicely. Lift your worries away and replace it with gratitude and appreciation. Loyalty, Commitment and Gratitude are the foundation of Desire, Ask, Believe and Receive in ANY situation!
Worrying about the future robs you of the present moment. Try to observe how uch worrying you do. And if the nagging worry follows you relentlessly throughout the day, follow Scarlett O’Hara’s example: Tell yourself, “I’m not going to think about this right now, I’ll think about this tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.”
