The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Don’t Worry, Be Happy
Quotes of the Day:
“Do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.” ~Benjamin Franklin
“How much pain they have cost us, the evils which have never happened.” ~Thomas Jefferson
“Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden.” ~Corrie ten Boom
The Single Woman Says:
That miserable little five-letter word that causes us so much unnecessary torment, pain, and strife. So much so, I had to choose three quotes today instead of the usual one because as we leave 2011 behind, I want us to leave worry on the shelf and give 2012 our best self.
Worry does nothing to make the future better, but everything to make the present worse. Worry doesn’t bring peace, it steals peace. Worry doesn’t spare someone else pain, it causes you pain. Worry is wringing your hands over the people you love when you could be joining hands with the people you love.
Here’s the thing: Worry doesn’t do one thing to change the course of events from happening the way that they were going to anyway. It just leaves you dreading what could happen instead of enjoying what DOES happen. And it is entirely in your control to STOP…to lay down the worry and pick up faith. To realize that there is a bigger plan at work and that God is in control and that by trying to worry yourself out of troubles, you’re worrying yourself out of LIFE. Remember: The rain of life can’t stop you if the umbrella of faith tops you! Make today the day you step out from under the cloud of worry and into the sunshine of faith.
