Don’t Borrow Trouble …

Like I do so frequently, I’m busy borrowing trouble again.

Knowing full well that it’s counter productive and self-defeating, I continue to worry excessively about what might happen. Worst case scenarios about things I’m helpless to change one way or the other constantly plague my thoughts. Every effort I make to avoid this destructive habit falls short.

My wife tells me not to borrow trouble. She tells me that worrying about things over which you have no control is fruitless.

She’s right of course.

To be mindful of what’s happening now and to live in the moment is the goal.

I’m working on it.

Guess I just need to work a little harder …

  1. it’s hard because our minds are creatures of habit. Changing any habit requires concentration and lots of practice….but also kindness towards our struggling self 🙂
