Don’t be afraid of what isn’t.

We worry, some of us more than others. Fretting about the future is all too easy to do. We fear that something we don’t want will happen or that something we do want won’t materialize.

Lost in our worry, we lose sight of the fact that what we’re afraid of isn’t real. It hasn’t happened yet, but we’re reacting to it emotionally as if it were an actual fact.

When we fear the future, we suck the joy out of the present. We lose sight of the goodness of right now. We also may be more likely to manifest what we’re afraid of because of our strong emotional focus on it.

Today’s message suggests I don’t want to borrow trouble. Should things that are difficult for me do occur, I can deal with them at the time they occur. I will also be better equipped to deal with them if I haven’t run myself down with worry. Meanwhile, life is here for me to enjoy!

Please reflect and share. How do you handle your worries?
