Yesterday, I wasted a beautiful day by stressing over a "what if". emoticon
My "what if" might very well come to pass. But it didn't do any good stressing about it.
In fact, stressing left me exhausted.

Today, I decided it does no good to worry today about the future. I can only do the best I can today and enjoy the day.

Nothing has changed between yesterday and today except on how I choose to react.
Happiness is a choice. It seems choosing to stress is also a choice.
Change your thoughts and you change your world.

I chose not to stress today. I can do it again tomorrow.

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
--Reinhold Niebuhr

    Choosing not to stress can be hard though, but I found that over 95% that I stress over never happens! Stressing or worrying is like rocking in a rocking chair, you use up a lot of energy getting nowhere! I hope you have a low stress day today!
