Every time a negative thought comes into your mind--like "how am I going to pay the bills?" or "what does he think of me?" just focus on what you can do at THIS moment and affirm, "they will be taken care of", or "he thinks I'm fine" etc.
Do the best you can--of course wishful thinking doesn't get the job done, but focus on what you can do from moment to moment to make a cause towards the job.

Often all the stress and worries of the day seem to flood my mind when I am trying to get to sleep. I have found that if I jot down these worries on a pad, I can more easily relax and go to sleep. When I wake, I am more able to make decisions on how to best solve those problems.
In the words of Scarlet O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind," (paraphrased) " I am just not going to worry about that today. I will worry about that tomorrow."
When I have a worry, I write it down and fold up the piece of paper. Then I drop it in my worry jar. Two to three weeks later I read my worries and many of them I laugh at. I can say 253 to those worries. It makes me feel so much better.
