I want to run an idea by you. Someone said to me the other day that she was really worrying about me, and after the conversation I thought to myself, what good does that do her or me?
Worrying is a waste of energy and it affects our health. The next time you find yourself worrying about something, ask yourself – and that’s from the government to your children, to icy roads, to whatever – what good is it doing us to worry? It does nothing, and it affects our health.
So let’s make a pact for 2018 not to spend time in worrying. And when you find yourself starting to worry, stop and ask yourself: “Is this helpful to anybody?”
Especially you. Is worry really helping you?
I really think we should make an effort this year to stop worrying. Unless you can find a good reason why we should, I’m going to stop worrying.
Agree!! I quit worrying in 2016..I just do the next thing! Keep it movin’!!
Worry is like sitting in a rocking chair. It gives you something to do. but it doesn’t get you anywhere.
Please pray foir me Echo. I AM IN BIG TROUBLE. I USED CREDIT CARDS TO START A BUSINESS BUT IT DID NOT WORK OUT AND I GET ONLY $434 MONTHLY ON SOCIAL SECURITY. I DID NOT PAY ANY FEES FOR TWO YEARS, SO NOW I AM BEING SUED BY — CAPITAL ONE FOR $3684 — CITICARD FOR $1785, AND CHASE FOR $1200. SO I AM REALLY WORRIED ABOUT IT
This is a very wise message. Worrying can be an addiction and very hard to break. Thank you for sharing your powerful message on worrying, it is much needed advice, and especially these days. I truly look forward to your written and video blogs, Echo, they are so very helpful. You are such a beautiful soul and woman, inside and out! Thank you.
Yes, worrying is a waste of time & energy, unless…it’s the first step toward action. If there is a concern/worry and there is an action to diminish or take away the worry – that’s addressing a real need. If there is no action to be taken, then the next step is just to BE in the moment! 🙂
