Chapter 12, Page 19, Book 20

Worry is a misuse of the imagination.

Dan Zadra

December 19th - life is too short to be unhappy

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen.  Keep in the sunlight.

Benjamin Franklin

Worry its a waste of time and energy.  And our time is very precious to us.  It only creates more stress in your life.  Our imaginations can spiral out of control.  

Time spent worrying is time spent not living.  It takes us out of the present moment and into the past, ruminating about what has already happened or into the future, projecting  what might possibly come. 

What we need to do is to keep in the present moment, and enjoy what we have now.  Not worry about what may happen.

Don’t let the past steal your present.  This is the message of Christmas:  We are never alone.

Taylor Caldwell

How much better it would be to spend our time doing things we actually want to do.  Enjoying the people we are with right now. Don’t lose sight of today, thinking about what might happen to tomorrow.

Worrying is truly the biggest time waster of all.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.

Leo F. Buscaglia

Worry is a big waste of time.

I read somewhere how much time people waste worrying about things that never happen. So it is good not to worry. I'm working on worrying less. This year has taught me that :)

I agree but boy has it ever been hard not to worry a lot this year!

You said it, Martha! I like what another blogger's husband says, "“Worry is interest paid in advance for trouble that rarely comes."
