Don’t You Worry, Child

“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them have never happened.” – Mark Twain

We tend to worry more about what could happen rather than just living in the moment. Worrying will get you nowhere. I can bet approximately 90% of your worries won’t come true. So why do we worry? Why do we expect the worst to happen to us? Bad things do happen, but they aren’t the only things to happen to us. We expect the worst to happen because when they do, it isn’t so bad. But is that really better than living happily and positively? If we worry less, we can focus on the present moment. It’s important to focus on what’s happening right now to put your mind at ease instead of being depressed about the past or anxious about the future. It’s a difficult task to block out the past and future — but you can’t totally block it all out and you shouldn’t block it all out. It helps you grow into a better person. Cutting out the major worry in our lives can help with so much — sleep, stress, weight control, happiness, anxiety, depression.

Practice putting your mind into the present moment. Everything happens for a reason, so why worry about it? If it’s going to happen, it happens. But more likely than anything, you’re worrying for absolutely nothing. So just breathe, because everything is going to be okay. 🙂
