    I do worry too much. I read a good statement a few days ago. It said......Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday....I do worry about things ahead. I am self employed and never really know if the work will keep coming in. When I look back all the things I worried about in the past have worked out ok so I think the quote above is very true
    friendindeed

    Thats right. 30 years I have needed work and never run out yet I worry. Stupid

    friendindeed, I am self-employed too and have the same worries 'cause I don't know for how long I will be able to keep my business going. I went from having twelve full time employees to four. NFG.

    Hi varon...Its to be your own boss. Not o goo when sick or on Holls. The money stops. Wouldnt change it tho. All the best to you
    Not a worry in the world, not a penny in my pocket.. Life is going to happen just the same.
    Worry is trying to control things that we can't. It is one of the tools the demons use to cause us to question God.
    What, me worry.

    I do worry about the future of myself, my family, my country, the world and everything. But, I always try to think positively, so I don't worry about the things excessively.

    Recently, a chain of bad things has happened to me financially and as for my career. It's amazing how bad things come at me at the same time altogether. I've been under for a few weeks. But heck, how many times have I come back from the failures in my life? Many, many! I will overcome.

    Aw...what a great attitude! It is hard, sometimes, to see a way out! Hope things turn around for you soon! Good luck!

    Thanks, monkey11!
    Why did you name yourself, monkey?
    varon

    Good luck to you schubee, wish you the best.
    I feel comfortable financially at this time, due partially to a hobby which allows me to generate additional money. I am getting a bit tired of the amount of time I have to put into these projects, and the deadlines. My bodies telling me to chill. As long as I've got my old lady and my health that's all that matters. The future looks good for now. (Please no comments about The "old lady" remark, she's heard that since she's 15).

    My hubby calls me that too.. It is indaring... But I still slap him around a lil when I hear it.

    I dated her at 15, but I still am a filthy old. My wife's jaws get tight if I call her my old lady in front of a customer.

    Lol..behave!
    I worry my warts off...lol. Recently I decided that all my concerns were literally killing me so I took post it's and wrote "Right Here Right Now" and put them all around the house just to remind myself to stay in the moment. I am fully aware that most things we worry about never materialize but trying to stay present is quite difficult when you are so well worry trained.Raising teens is the most challenging thing I have ever entered so worry for them is a habit. Advice would be great as to how to just give this up;)

    Mom years ago I was diagnosised with siezures.. the doc told me I am a prime canadate for stroke... (that worry could actually kill me)I just let it all ride. Life is going to happen... All I can do is handle it when it gets here.
    mom

    I appreciate your advice...I want to feel relaxed but it seems I have so much riding on my shoulders and no help. I know this too shall pass I am just stressing with our trip in two weeks and trying to work extra hours and deal with the kids and house and and and. i know once we get home i can take a breath...this feeling of drowning is stifling.
    FreedomFighter

    Stressing out can cause the feeling of drowning because everything comes at you like a giant wave. Have you written everything down you need to do and what will happen between now and the trip? And even on the trip? Get a calendar or journal and write down everything and when it will get done. Be as detailed as possible and necessary. Then once it happens, check it off and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. This will help break down the giant wave into manageable "drops of water" thinking, and your mind will say, "I won't have to deal with that little thing until such and such time or day, so I won't worry about it." :)
    mom

    Thanks FreedomFighter...thats great advice!
    i used to worry about the future,but since i meet miss perfect,i am just enjoying the present a lot.............at my age i don't know how much future i have left anyway.............
    worry or concerned call it what you want perhaps yes.
    What bloody future? Some one once said,'Things are looking up,That's the only way you can look when you're flat on your back'.
    How true.
    varon

    I have never hear this .... it is quite good. Thanks Tommyh
    It is learning to live in the present. ... Life is lived in the present. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is ... fix what you can and let the rest take care of itself.
    Remember the song the fella sang a few years back I think it was called Don't Worry Be Happy ! well when I get into a stressful time I think about that song and sing it. Works for me.

    Be greatfull you have them, some couples could never have kids. Can't tell you how many times I wanted to stick my foot "through" his ass. Now I miss him.
    mom

    You have a point...I love my kids...it's just going through the teen thing alone can be overwhelming at times, especially when I can't seem to get through to them about the issues they are choosing. I know it is all part of being individuals and creating their own path. It is just hard to watch sometimes.
    ed shank

    Just reinforce your love for them by telling them, and doing what a good parent is supposed to do. They will eventually see the light. Wish I heard those words while living at home. Life may have been different.
    my father always said live for today because tomorrow may never come
    friendindeed

    Thats what I am worried about lol
    Tommyh

    Don't the Buddhists say 'Tomorrow does not exist'?

    I don't worry about my future,but i do tend to worry about my little grandsons future,i am his sole carer and if anything happened to me,gosh i dont know where he would end up.Like any parent i worry also if he will get into drugs or drink or even a life of crime.

    friendindeed

    I think we all worry about these things. I have been where you are and in the end all workred out good. Keep going

    Yep...all i can do is do my best.
    We'er all only a blink away from eternity
    Not at all. I have my survivalist kit ready for any disasters.

    Worry can be devided into parts,That kind of worry that will stop something wrong happening in the future,Thats proggessive worry,  And worry that it does not matter what we do,we cannot alter the outcome,That is retrogressive,worry,Or is it all common sense,??

    why worry about tomorrow it never comes its always be today and next week will always be next week take it one day at a time
    No, I look forward to my future always. There's always something new and better to come. If bad appears, I accept that too. It's all experience no matter how you look at it.

    I worry just to things that can cost me very expensive. And everyone think for the future, for example after ten minutes i must go to eat breakfast, that is a plan for the future but not always it will be how you thought and how you planned. The future isn`t sure for nobody.

    I woke up this morning and I wasnt worried. Now that makes me worry

    Very good,i like it,
