Worries Got Your Down?

“Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.”
Swedish Proverb

Worries are slippery little devils! In my experience the root of my worry is rarely what I think I am worried about. For example I may think I am worried about my relationship but the reality is that I do not want to grow old alone. My relationship is fine, but my concerns over being old and alone are causing anxiety.

I recently heard someone say stop letting your worries bully your mind. The truth of the statement was immediately relevant to me. I, and maybe you, let worries bully our minds. I can worry for day over a comment (either to me or from me). I rarely take action; I just mull it over in my mind for hours.

Find the root cause of your worry and take action. Inaction is the fuel of worry. Get busy first finding the root of your concerns and then working through solutions to those concerns.  Do not let small concerns overshadow your greatness!
