TAIT: Don't Worry

I tend to talk so much about living in the moment and enjoying "now".  Lately though, I haven't been practicing what I preach.  Instead, I worry. I worry about the future, about what is going to happen, where I'm going to be, what I'm going to be doing and when things are going to happen. I'm a big ball of worry.  In all reality, I have very little control over any of these things. Sure, I can control my reactions to situations or things that happen to me, but for the most part, what will be will be regardless of what I do. I've found some peace in these words below.

I worried about lots of things in life until I was in my 40's or 50's... can't even remember when it was. Life is so much easier when you leave your worries behind you.

Don't I know it! I definitely need this mantra to stick with me, especially since I've never been a worrier until this year. It's not been fun, but I want to get rid of the worry, and I'll definitely take confidence in these words!

Ya know, this is SO true. You completely described me in the first paragraph. I worry about everything and lately it's been making my headaches worse and I've just been sad. But really what's the point? It really won't change the outcome! Definitely need to work on that.

I feel like you and I would be BFFs IRL. lol We are very similar! haha

I totally needed this! I have been a constant ball of worry lately too. I'm trying to figure out what I want to do in life and I feel like the years are flying by! I thought I would have known by now. But you're absolutely right.... worrying doesn't change anything. Thanks for all the inspiration =)

I tend to worry quite often so these are great reminders. Thanks!

Amanda said...

Ugh, I'm the same way! I worry about everything. All the time. Even when I say that I won't, I always do.
I think I need to get these saying out on canvas as daily reminders!

Morgan....this is sooooo me!! That first one is a reminder I need every day!! I get it honest...my mom is the same way. I try to not get worked up about things, but it's my nature to worry...about....EVERYTHING! Thanks for making me feel I am not alone and that we can work on this together! ;)

I am a huge worrier ( person who worries?) I can't help it...I bottle it all up and then once a month all my stress and worries come out in a crying fit and my husband tries to makes me feel better. Thanks for the quotes!

This is something huge that God has been teaching me lately...I was actually just talking to david about it yesterday. I need to learn to let go and not worry.

It is SO hard not to worry about the future and even planning little things that aren't even a big deal! I hope you are able to relax a little more and enjoy every moment :-)

Alissa said...

This is such a great reminder for this next semester!! Such perfect timing!

What a wonderfully inspirational post lady and oh so true!

Amanda Raborn said...

Love this! I recently saw a quote that said "Worrying is like praying for something you don't want." So simple yet true! We all do it- so don't be too hard on yourself :)

Hope you have a great week!
