There are a number of sayings that stick in ones' mind but I remember this one above most. “I've lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” That bit of wisdom comes from the illustrious Mark Twain.

This speaks volumes to me. As humans we tend to stress over things even though what we are stressing over may or may not occur. We bring that unfulfilled event into the front of our thinking process and beat it to death.

That is not to say that sometimes shit happens. It does for sure but much of the time we think and rethink and then think to death something that never will materialize...which is great. But sadly we do a whole hell of a lot of damage in the process.

We are conditioned to worry and that is what we all do much of the time. We fret, we worry, we are fearful, we drive ourselves crazy with things that never come to fruition. Why the hell do we do that? I wish I knew the answer folks.

Why would you want to sit around and worry about something that may or may not ever happen. It beats me! Do you know that what you focus on your worries are multiplied. The really upsetting fact is that when you worry you are focusing your energies on that one area of your life.

Probably it's an area that you have zero control over anyway but there you are laser focused. You wake up worrying and go to sleep worrying.

Sometimes you worry about being attacked in your sleep or about getting sick or having a heart attack. Sad things to fret over and you know what? A whole lot of times you make that worry a reality.

Is it because you just focused too much on it that you magnetized the very thing you were trying to avoid? Think about that one. So the answer here is to focus on the positive things in your life and stop worrying about things that may never come about.

Life happens and we are spectators at times or participants at other times. Don't waste your valuable time worrying. Worry creates stress and stress my friends KILLS.

So unless you want to fall over dead before your time, knock it off. You can rest assured that most of your worries are nonsense so let go and relax. Stay tuned for more wisdom from me, your edgy blogger.
