99% of things you worry about never happen. I just pulled this “statistic” off the internet. It may not be scientifically verifiable or whatever but it rings pretty true for me. I am, by nature, a worrier. And most of the things I worry about never happen. So I actually waste time and productivity by even worrying about them in the first place. I need to stop worrying. You need to stop worrying. In this post (the 4th installment of my series A Year of Positivity ) we’re gonna have a little chat about “How to Stop Worrying.”
I think this is important. Worrying robs us of our time and of our positivity. Worrying doesn’t add anything good to our day.
I actually feel like worrying takes my focus away from God. When I worry I try to think of ways that I can fix my problems instead of giving them to God and saying “I trust you, Lord.”
You might be thinking HEY HEY HEY, I got good things to worry about!
I’m right there with you sister. I have tons of things going on in my life right that I could be worrying about.
In all honesty, just last week I was filled with worry and anxiety until it made me physically ill. I came home with an aching back, a stiff neck and chest pain. All because I let the worries of my day cloud my mind. I ruined my evening and went to bed with a heavy heart.
Worrying makes me an anxious person and I don’t like being anxious. I also don’t like having chest pain–I’m only 30 y’all.
I was so inspired by her post. Instead of letting each day be a continuation of worry I stopped. I let my worry go and gave it all over to God. I prayed. And I decided to trust Him.
That post was one of the most positive things about last week. It also helped me see beyond my worry and fill my days with more kindness.
I really hope you get a chance to hop over and read Michele’s post. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
