Don’t Worry Today


Today, I will not worry;
to do so drags me down,
makes me lose faith.
The dark voice whispers
all the “what-ifs” but I
refuse to hear for experience
shows me that, in the end,
all is as it should be.

W aiting for disasters that never come
O pen your mind to positive possibilities
R elease all negative thoughts
R esist temptation to fret
Y ou are the sum of your thoughts


Here is some toe-tapping joy music.

    I am so glad that I read this post today. I was just saying to a colleague that I am on the verge of making some big chances and instead of focusing on the wonderful possibilities of the future I have been placing the emphasis on my dread. I have been letting my anxiety get the better of me and worrying about things that have not even taken place it, what an absurdity!

    Thank you for the post 🙂
