How often do you worry?- Positive Wednesdays

I often admire those persons who wake up every day and just keep going. They do not worry about the things they cannot change. They just change the things they can.  I often try to be like  that.But, every now and then i get knocked down. It often starts by just one stray thought and then it balloons into a mountain  that sits on my shoulder. I usually go into internal mode until i get a reminder like this one. I hope this can be your reminder too.

Legend has it that 90% of what we worry about never comes to pass. Whether that is statistically precise or not, there's probably some truth to it in your life. How much of our lives do we miss because we're agonizing over what might happen down the road? How often do we fail to act--even if it's the right thing to do--because we fear any number of possible consequences? Fretting over the future doesn't solve any impending problems. It only paralyzes your actions of the present. It stresses you out, makes you mentally and physically tired, and saps all the fun out of what could have been another great day. 

Next time you start to worry about what might happen, think of this: You can prepare, but you cannot predict. So do what you can and forget what you cannot.  

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.

- Corrie Ten Boom, author and human rights activist

  5. Lovely! I love the quote at the end.
    True and well said.
    A worry thought can really destroy the here and now. It's hard to retrain the brain to focus on the beautiful moments of today sometimes and not the worry.
    Mostly I think I'm pretty good at it. But not always.

  8. Worry is such a time waster. I read a quote that says Regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow are twin thieves that rob us of the moment. worry always puts me there.
