Good morning, fellow affirmer!
The late great Wayne Dyer once did a brief monologue on one of his old cassette series’s that always stuck with me.
He said there are only two types of things you can possibly worry about – things you can control and things you can’t control.
Then he asked two sagely statements.
“There ain’t no use in worrying about things you can control. If you can control them, why worry about them?”
You’re capable. You’re responsible. You’ll handle them. Worry adds nothing useful to the equation.
Then he said, “There ain’t no use in worrying about things you can’t control. If you can’t control them, why worry about them?”
Our little egos must learn to accept that there are certain things beyond our control. We can’t control what other people think of us, whether the sun will come up tomorrow, or how many days our current form will remain here. Yet, we spend time worrying and stressing over such things. They steal our energy and our positive momentum and we can’t change them no matter how much we worry.
Then Dyer concluded by saying, “That’s everything it’s possible to worry about. So, there ain’t no use in worrying “
He makes a powerful point. Whether we can control something or not, both are reasons not to worry.
I would add that that we have a wisdom within us and there’s a wisdom present in the universe that are both working to get you and I where and when we need to be. Trust that wisdom and, as much as possible, cut worry out of your mental diet. It’s mental junk food of the worst kind.
Wherever you are on your journey today, just commit to taking one more step.
Keep your mind on your side, my friends.
