Worry is wasted energy.  That's what I always tell people and it's how I strive to live my life.  So often we stress about things we have no control over.  We waste precious moments, days or even weeks of our lives worrying.  While we're busy worrying, we don't actually LIVE these moments.  What a waste!  We've been given this wonderful life to live and experience, and we just let it waste away while we worry.

I read, "Worrying doesn't take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace."  Also, "People sacrifice the present for the future.  But life is only available in the present."  These statements are so true.  That's what I often talk about.  It seems to be a recurring theme in my blogs because I believe it's such an important message.  I try to remember to live in the NOW moment.  That's all there really is anyway.  And if you live in the "NOW" moment, there's really no reason to worry, is there?  Think about it.  The past is over.  The future isn't here yet.  ALL THERE IS IS NOW!!!

Being human, sometimes I forget and I start to worry about things.  But as soon as I catch myself doing that, I JUST STOP IT!  It's a choice.  It's always a choice as to how you live your life.  Every moment of every day we make choices about our lives.  You can choose to be happy.  You can choose to live in the "NOW" moment.  You can choose to be worry free.  Oh... it takes practice, but it's worth the effort.   Give it a try.

Love,  Paula
