Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey!
With all of the pressure that everyday living heaps on top of us, is it any wonder that many of us seem to spend the majority of our time worrying about just about everything under the sun? We torment and torture ourselves over a variety of worrisome topics.
We worry about money or the lack thereof. We worry about our jobs, when our next raise will be coming and how in the world were going to make ends meet. We worry about the welfare of our family members. We worry about the weather, the economy and this and that and the other. Worry, worry and worry some more.
If only the people who worry about their liabilities would think about the riches they do possess, they would stop worrying.
As a matter of fact, we are often so caught up in this worrying merry-go-round that we regularly miss the boat by missing the best life has to offer. Instead of moving our lives forward by seeing the good, we quite often move in reverse fashion by focusing on the bad. Since we can only successfully move in one direction at a time, doesnt it make sense to move towards our goals and dreams by looking at those things we do have and the things we can do right now?
Rather than wasting our precious time on earth worrying about things that dont need to be worried about, maybe we should lighten up a little and start looking on the brighter side of things now and again. If we will only open our eyes to the boundless opportunity that surrounds us daily, we will see that there is plenty to celebrate in our lives. As Thomas J. Peters said, you need to celebrate what you want to see more of.
Make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!
Benjamin Franklin really had it wired when he said, Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight. In a few short yet super charged words, he reminded us to stand tall in the delightful sunshine of optimism and hope instead of slumping in the shadows of worry and doubt. He wanted each and every one of us to celebrate the joy that is life and to live, live and live some more.
When you begin approaching each day with excited anticipation, just KNOWING that something great is about to happen, you set the stage for something truly amazing to occur. By making every day a holiday, you make every day a special occasion a day well worth celebrating.
Overcoming fear and worry can be accomplished by living a day at a time or even a moment at a time. Your worries will be cut down to nothing.
Dr. Robert Anthony
Mary Hemingway warned us about the heavy price worry can exact on our lives when she said, Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.
Weve got to get out of this maddening cycle of worrying our lives away and start beginning each new day with plenty of vim and vigor, making certain that we keep looking up and looking ahead instead of needlessly looking back. Epictetus provided some sage advice when he said, There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.
When we stop all the worrying, fusing and fuming and redirect our energies and efforts into working towards a healthier life, a happier life and a more productive life; our lives will get better than we have ever dreamed possible.
The Bottom Line: When you live the life you love, youll celebrate the life you live.
