Thoughts about worries…
It just crossed my mind about those innuendos on the subject of worry. When you throw a party or host a gathering such as birthday, anniversary or wedding you worry about everything trying to please everyone. Let’s face it, it’s normal that people will say something both pleasant and disgusting remarks behind your back, it’s human nature. Too, when you try to accommodate visiting friends or relatives you try to be the best host there is, at times you feel that you’re being taken advantaged of. Notwithstanding, you overlooked to invite friends or relatives because of certain limitations. That certainly hurt some feelings. No words of thanks at the end of their stay or journey that you hear rather unsavory comments behind your back. I simply take things for a grain of salt. It’s not easy to do all these things “you worry to death” ensuring you gave everyone the best accommodations there was. When the party or function was over, send them a thank you note or card for showing up, show them you got class.
“Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.” Roy T. Bennett,
“If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.” Roy T. Bennett
And here is my take on the subject..
Worry won’t protect you from whatever you’re worried about. What can protect you are truth, strength, and action.
Here are the questions you must ask yourself. What can you do about it, and what will you do about it?
The good thing about worry is that it points your awareness specifically toward what you care about. That’s a valuable start, but it’s not enough.
Once you understand what you care about, worry has done its job. At that point you can transform the energy of worry into the energy of focused, effective action.
You can make a commitment to improve some particular aspect of your world. Then you can follow through on that commitment with the time, energy, and resources available to you.
Make note of what worries you, and determine what you can do about it. Then leave the worry behind by virtue of your positive actions.
