Peanuts again.....

For those of you that are worried about the future, or anything at all. 

You do know that worrying is a waste of time, don't you? You are not in control of what is going to happen on this earth.You cannot control anything. What is going to happen is going to happen. That is a fact. 

You can take precautions against certain things, but you can't control life... it will roll on regardless of how prepared you are, and worrying will prevent nothing. In order to stop yourself from worrying, you need to get in touch with why you are afraid. If you are worrying about things you have no control over, you are just beating yourself up for no reason. You need to stay in the NOW, today, the present. If you are worrying, you are projecting your thoughts to the future, and the future has no guarantees. 

Right now, this minute, all is well. Slow down and sink into this moment of serenity. Breathe ... and if you start to worry, direct your mind to STOP, change the subject, change your mind. Think of the most wonderful time of your life, appreciate that feeling, really lap it up. Distract yourself. Try reciting a calming mantra, have a warm bath, take a walk, play with your children/grandchildren, savour each moment and accept that you are fine, life is good. You may have to repeat this over and over, until it becomes a habit. Once you really feel that you are okay and that you can take care of yourself, you will feel safer. DON'T WORRY ABOUT THINGS YOU CANNOT CHANGE.
