  • I agree with Momma Little that it is almost impossible to when someone says, "don't worry" - and it is like a pink elephant that comes to mind even more often. However - there is surely some benefit that comes from trying to manage one's worries - and I envy people who can put things in boxes and only bring them out in a positive, constructive way. I'm not so lucky - and could easily be called a "brooder" - but more and more I'm trying to learn and practice leaving my worries out of my daily routine. It doesn't always work, but I keep trying. And I rally like what Need to lose 100 Lb said about "If you don't mind, it don't matter" - great mantra - thanks!!! ~Lily - by LILYBELLE8
  • definitely easier said than done, but well worth the effort. Age is definitely a mind over matter deal...if you don't mind, it don't matter! - by NEEDTOLOSE100LB
  • I think it's just a little impossible to tell someone not to worry. It's like, "Don't think about a pink elephant", and all you can think of then, is a pink elephant! - by LORIDREX
