Three Reasons Not To Worry

How many hours have you wasted, agonizing over things of which you have little or no control? If you’re like me, or how I used to be, the number of hours is fairly high. I cannot count the number of hours and days—days that I’ll never get back—that were given over to this nagging worry that I now regret. So why do we engage in this pointless and potentially harmful behavior? That I cannot answer. Perhaps all I can do is give you my “Three Reasons Not to Worry,” and let you make up your own mind.

Reason 1

Because there are more important things to do like hugging your kids, writing a friend, volunteering for a charity or calling your Mom.

Reason 2

Because there are more productive things to do like perfecting your job skills, starting your autobiography or banging your head against wrought iron.

Reason 3

Because, and this is very important, in the end, when all the business of life is over, you will be judged for who you were, and not for what you were able to accomplish. God put us on this earth for his enjoyment and he loves to see his children at play. Don’t waste this precious gift fretting about stupid stuff, and it’s all stupid stuff.
