When I think of 'giving up' I always think of it in bad terms.
'Don't give up!' 'You're giving up on me?' 'So, you're just going to give up?'
Those are the things that come to mind first.
Today I have decided that some things you can give up on and it is O.K.
I'm giving up worrying, or at least trying to.
'Worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do, but it gets you nowhere.'
How true is that? You can stay up all hours of the night worrying over something,
will it make a difference in the morning?
Nope, it's going to happen whether you worried about it or not.
A friend of mine told me to never worry because you put yourself through
the situation twice; once in your head and once in real life.
I never thought of it like that! I'm a worry wart, I'll admit it.
I worry about everything, big or small.
For some reason I feel that it's my job to make sure everything goes smoothly,
and if it doesn't, it's all my fault. Who gave me all the responsibility?
No one did, I put it on myself.
I've been trying these past months to just let go of everything I've been
trying to control and worrying endlessly about.
If it's going to happen, it will happen.
'Rule number one is, don't sweat the small stuff. Rule number two is, it's all small stuff.'
I could go on and on with quotes I've found about worrying, they're all so true!
Tiny Buddah does it again with this blog.
This website has been a serious life-saver for me the past few months.
Any time I'm feeling or thinking anything negative I turn to the words
from this website and it always seems to calm my mind.
I had a big jump in readers yesterday, thanks for not forgetting about my little website!
As always, feel free to think of your own questions to ask me!
Don't forget to think of answers for yourself to these questions, it's good to
put your brain into overdrive every once in a while.
To all my Faithful Readers:
