Don’t fret over what you can’t control.
We all tend to worry, some of us more than others. Thing go wrong, could go wrong, have gone wrong, or aren’t what we want.
It’s easy to get upset about it. We feel bad and that certainly doesn’t improve the situation.
Worry can sometimes impel us to make changes. At least if we don’t like a situation of our own making, we can elect to make different choices.
But if the troubling situation is outside of our control, worry has not possible upside. We feel badly and can’t do anything about it. Then the only option within our control is to choose not to worry.
Today’s message reminds me not to create difficulty for myself by worrying. I can instead choose to take what actions are within my control and then trust that all will be okay.
Please reflect and share. What worry might you jettison today?
