Live_Life_Worry_Free_Quote_grandeWorry is a waste of your imagination. There are so many other things you could be thinking about instead of worrying about something. The worst part about worrying is that it can’t change the outcome of a problem. Worry only makes your thoughts go crazy and your mind wish it could go on holiday. People are always posting on Facebook about worrying. They remind us all that it can’t change anything or fix it because you are in a mental state over worrying about money, bills, children, family, health, etc. The only thing we can do when worry hits our brain is to focus on another topic. I have recommended to many of my family members to listen to music, watch a comedy, take a walk or go to the gym. Retraining your mind to ignore worry is probably one of the healthiest things you can do. I have seen numerous articles about changing in 2015. The topics include losing weight, quit smoking, ┬ácut down on drinking, improving your finances, getting a better job, spending more time with family or just improving your appearance and outlook on life. No one ever suggest that worry which just about everyone does, should be eliminated from our thoughts. When we worry because our child is out late with the car and hasn’t returned at the appointed time, or if they will make the team, pass that big exam, or even ourselves trying to pass courses or tests to improve our financial standing. The Boy Scout motto, “Be Prepared” is the only answer that comes to mind when I worry. I love to listen to the old time radio shows, or watch television shows from the 1950’s and 1960’s as it takes my mind to a different time. Sure they all worried back then, just as we do now, but they didn’t portray it in their shows. In the Good Gus Series, there is plenty of worrying. There are several stories where the parents worry but there is always someone, usually Dr. Moore, who calms them down or tells them to just stop it. Rather than worry about choosing a book for the child or children in your life, select a book from the Good Gus Series where you know the children will be given a good story with a positive moral lesson.
