Clear the Clutter in Your Mind

Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry NEVER fixes anything.

I can be such a worry wart at times, i think my mind actually searches for things to fret about.

I think these two quotes reinforce what we allready know to be true.

Don't let worries waste your time.

That is funny, because I have been clearing the clutter at home...and it seems to be freeing my BRAIN too. It works. ;0

Oh awesome post! I worry all the time. I worry about other people and their lives, I worry about work, I worry about dinner. It can be all consuming.

Thanks for the reminder to wind back a bit!

Couldn't agree more. It's a tough habit to break but worrying does more harm than good. If it's out of your hands it's not worth your thoughts!

I tend to overthink everything too. I've also discovered that whatever I'm worrying about, is never as bad as I imagine. Which has taught me, over many many many years, that worrying solves absolutely nothing. In the end, it will all be fine. That's not to say I don't worry. I just choose to worry about the big things. Fretting about the little things isn't worth it.

I can be a worrywort, as well. I think the only time it works to my advantage is when it causes me to really prepare for something (like a presentation) but usually it's just causing more harm than good. Hopefully we'll all get better at not wasting time worrying :)
