LETTING GO OF WORRY
What if we knew for certain that everything we’re worried about today will work out fine? What if we had a guarantee that the problem bothering us would be worked out in the most perfect way, and at the best possible time? Furthermore, what if we knew that three years from now we’d be grateful for that problem, and its solutions?
What if… we knew that even our worst fear would work out for the best?
What if… we had a guarantee that everything that’s happening, and has happened, in our life was meant to be, planned just for us, and in our best interest?
What if…we had a guarantee that the people we love are experiencing exactly what they need in order to become who they’re intended to become? Further, what if we had a guarantee that others can be responsible for themselves, and we don’t have to control or take responsibility for them?
What if…we knew the future was going to be good, and we would have an abundance of resources and guidance to handle whatever comes our way?
What if…we knew everything was okay, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing?
What would we do then?
We’d be free to let go and enjoy life.
Today, I will know that I don’t have to worry about anything. If I do worry, I will do it with the understanding that I am choosing to worry, and it is not necessary.
The past is gone, except in our minds. When we dwell on past hurts, mistakes, or even joys, we can’t focus on the present. No amount of thinking or worrying can change the past or recapture it and bring it into the present.
We can now say a loving good-bye to the past, thanking all of our experiences for the lessons they brought us. Then we can concentrate on what is here and now. We can fully experience each new moment as it comes. We can also give our full attention to each new lesson as it is presented to us
As we turn our minds to each present moment, we find ourselves recognizing the continuum of life. Who we are now is a result of past lessons learned. We don’t need to remember the experiences that taught us the lessons, only the lessons themselves.
Today is the only place in time that exists. I release my past and everyone in it.
To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch... To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. -Emerson
