#14 Reflections The thing about worry

The thing about worry
By Mary K. Mennenga

That you may not know is
Nothing changes because you worried about it
What's the reasoning behind all that worrying?
Or was it to give you something to do
As you wait to find out what has happened
About something you had no control of
What the outcome would be anyway
So what good did you gain from all that worrying?
That is a question I haven't heard an answer to
That justifies the amount of stress it causes!

very true and helpful to remember. I try to keep to constructive helpful thought but sometimes it slips into the evasive ether of worry and sneaks in. So I am training myself to see it and stop it....but it will take practice to wrestle this etheral beast of worry. I'm gearing up with my strenth of positive thoughts and feelings.
