Worrying never did a body good

I was speaking with my mother today, no actually I was crying to my mother today, and she calmed me down by giving me some very valid points.  She told me that no matter what happens, worrying is NOT going to do me any good.  The outcome will come in due time, but torturing yourself beforehand with worry is just pointless.   Of course easier said then done, but she’s right, she IS my mother.

l7She talked about how worrying is wasted energy.  If we are in fact let down, do you think that all the worrying you did before hand is going to help you now? Nope.  It was just ADDED stress, not good for the body.  It is a waste of time, the outcome will eventually surface so why add MORE fear or pain in the waiting game?  Actually, I can be REALLY good at channeling my inner yogi voice and NOT stressing about many things, but others, I can get more upset then I think I’ve ever been.  Lately I’ve been tested, and that’s life, but man it can really test your patience and your entire soul.  Again, that’s life.  I’m in it, bring it!

l2My mother also spoke to me about positive thinking.  We all know I’m a huge advocate and preacher, but sometimes, I need reminders too.  My husband is pretty amazing at being positive about the unknown, and my mother enlightened me today with the fact that positive thinking centers us, and in turn, attracts goodness.

lIn a society filled with a lot of fear, it can be difficult to navigate through the good and the bad and decide what to pay more attention to.  There can be too much information out there as well, sometimes it’s nicer to just trust the process…..   Not to look online (we are all guilty of nasty google)….

You will ALWAYS get to point B, you are right where you are supposed to be, so why do we tend to focus on the bad when there is so, so, much good?   It’s the world we live in, it’s our trained brains to be afraid of the “what ifs”, instead of seeing the fantastic “right now”.  Do you think that if the outcome is bad your worrying did you any good?  Nope. It won’t make you feel any better when you are sad, it was just ADDED stress and anxiety, so try, and I mean TRY to focus on the good.

l5It’s there.  Don’t ignore it in your fears for the unknown.  Let the process unfold and take DEEP breaths.  Talk to people who distract you, or comfort you, and again, TRUST the universe.  Instead of finding that ONE thing that is not answered, that isn’t solved, that “COULD” be bad and letting it consume you, focus on ALL of the good. There’s a ton of it if you just open your eyes, and your heart…and then breathe it all in.

    Lindsay, you blessed us with a very inspirational blog. You explained your mother’s loving advice to you and your determination to focus on the positive so well. You Rock The Positive Lindsay, and that’s just one of the many things we love about you. Thank You for helping us to remember that we have it within our power to do the same when we find ourselves feeling down and on the brink of worry and despair. Focus on all the Good, and breathe it all in!

    Thank you for reminding me of this. I have always been a person who worried over most things but in the last decade have tried to get this under control. I get so overwhelmed with things going on in my life that I forget to slow down and let things unfold. REALLY needed to see this today so I thank you for that.

    Your mother is a very wise woman. They say worrying today only steals today…it makes nothing better tomorrow. Namaste sweetie.

    Mama Klein is so wise! Ever notice people who are always negative and it seems like everything bad happens to them? It’s not a coincidence. Goodness attracts goodness. I think that’s why, given our family trauma, we are still all functional and loving human beings!
    Well you more than me !

    Well spoken right out of my heart, or head. Doesn’t matter. For the past few months we have been very much focusing on – the positive things, the little things, what brings us joy… there will always be other stuff and distractions – it is called life. But as long as you can focus and center yourself on what is good and important – you’ll be happy.
    So glad that you are surrounded by so many good, supportive people!
