Worry Changes Nothing

Life’s journey is filled with moments beyond our control, moments of apprehension, concern, and even foreboding, about what a situation, event or person could produce. They are imagined “could happen” scenarios which create stress and drain energy. Worry, in itself, has no value. It does not create change nor solutions. It does, however, take away precious moments of your life’s happiness and peace.

Winston Churchill wrote, “When I look back on all my worries, I remember the story of an old man who said on his deathbed that he had a lot of troubles in his life, most of which never happened.” Erma Bombeck adds to his thought writing, “Worry is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do, but it never gets you anywhere.” May you be wise and cautious in your moments of worry. Pause to test its reality. Get out of the rocking chair. Is it a “could happen” or something beyond your control that will happen? Remember that the product of most worries never happens. Don’t spend a lot of time worrying. As Mark Twain said, “Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.” May you choose always to capture and live life’s precious moments of happiness.

Have a beautiful day, a Happy Memorial Day Weekend and a magnificent week!!!
