I used to worry about everything. I had a lot to worry about--4 kids, one disabled... a business that was beginning to fail in this horrible economy. I had to deal with so much stress. I still do.
But a few years ago I made a life changing decision. I decided I wasn't going to worry. I was going to do what I felt I needed to do to take care of my kids and pray about things that are a concern to me, but I wasn't going to cause myself to get physically sick with worry. I have learned to have faith things are going to be alright.
I sold my business. I stay home with my kids and we are all okay. My husband works hard to a job that doesn't pay well, but also doesn't cause him to be sick with worries. We have learned to live with less, but we have also learned to be happy!
A neighborhood church had this quote on the readerboard and it is perfectly how I feel...
"Worrying won't stop the bad from happening..it just stops you from enjoying the good"
I thought I would share this since I know there is so much to worry about in this world...
I hope you go out and enjoy the good!
