Day 25 – March Slice of Life

Today is Day 25 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
I am using Encyclopedia of Me; My Life from A to Z, a guided journal created by Amy Krause Rosenthal.

W is for “Why Worry?”

We all have worries from time to time. Worry about our children, our jobs, our health, the health of our loved ones. We worry too about the craziness in the world.

Some of my biggest worries:
*waiting while my hubby was in surgery
*my children driving in bad weather
*my own driving

Yet, worrying takes it toll and it really doesn’t accomplish much. Worrying about a future event won’t help the outcome of that event at all.
As these quotes show, worry is a negative emotion, not positive at all:

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
Corrie Ten Boom

Don’t worry so much. Most of the things you worry about never end up happening.
Dick Van Dyke

Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere.
Erma Bombeck

Stop worrying about what can go wrong, and get excited about what can go right.  Great advice – one I need to follow consistently!
