WORRY TOO MUCH?

PROVERBS 31

With time, experience has taught me how invaluable it is to become a more positive person.

There are always risks out there that can leave us badly hurt. Life’s roadblocks make it easy for us to complain, leading us to become bitter. Rejection, fear, judgment, conflicts, anxiety, abandonment, and betrayals are all examples of said obstacles, to name a few. To put it simply, it’s hard to smile amidst life’s failures and frustrations – and is even harder still to exude a positive attitude while being misunderstood and embarrassed. Most of all, it is hardest to love when you’re in pain. Be it others, or yourself.

But what benefit can we gain from worrying, if any at all? What good thing can we get from whining?

Corrie Ten Boom said, “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” It is true; we gain nothing from worrying. But if we learn to let go, perhaps it will still be possible to experience joy in the midst of failures. To be happy in the middle of the chaos. To even have and enjoy brighter days.

One statistic says that “97% of the things you worry about don’t even happen”. And so with that in mind, instead of worrying, why not focus on living? It would be impossible to gain good health, happiness, healthy relationships, connections, clear headedness, confidence, contentment, wealth, success, good times, and a satisfactory life while carrying a burden.

Our life is as good as our mind set. We should stop worrying and focus on the things that matters. There are things we cannot control, and worrying will never change its outcome. What we can control is the way we respond to it. Be positive, be kind, generous, polite, and respectful. Realize that you have many positive qualities you can offer other people, and that may be enough to shift your focus from worrying into helping.

Stop overthinking. Live positively. Be in the moment, and focus on what really matters. Life is too short to worry about everything.
