Worry Less, Love More

I thought this was timely, as I said the other day that one of the things I am working most on is *not* worrying- not putting my energies in "what-ifs" , what "could" happen......
This includes not putting my energy/worry into things that *Seem* out of balance or is uncomfortable for me in our day to day life..... behaviors, physical manifestations, food (oh, the good old food issue!), ect.....
Setting that worry aside frees me up for so much LIVING AND JOY!!!!!

THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle

:: Worry Less, Love More ::

Perhaps you've been led to believe that worrying
about children goes hand in hand with loving them.
But in truth, parental love is far more powerful
*without* worry than with it.

Worries focus all your attention on what you *don't*
want and put you in a state of *fear*. This sends a
message to your child that you *expect* bad things
to happen. And since children naturally tend to meet
their parents' unspoken expectations, worries are
self-fulfilling prophesies.

Today, if you catch yourself worrying, don't worry
about it. :-)

Instead, use your awareness of worry to shift your
focus in the direction of what you *do* want, and
reach for thoughts that soothe your worries:

"It's not the end of the world."
"It won't last forever."
"I've successfully handled worse situations."
"We always find our way."

Before long you'll start feeling hopeful, and you'll
feel your heart opening, too. An open heart is all
you need for love to flow unconditionally...
unhindered by worries.


  1. You always post the most inspirational messages! I'm a huge worry-wort, and I needed this reminder. (Do I sound totally neurotic to you by now? LOL!)

  2. Oh believe me, I think I need this reminder just as much as you, if not more. :P
