What people don’t realize is that we equipped with everything we need to do what this life was given to us to do. We are complete, capable and cared for, yet we run around scared … and for some people, that never ends.
Many scaredy cats, like me, finally figured it out one day. I remember being 33 years old and saying to myself, “Hey! If you can do 33 years one time, why wouldn’t you be able to do it twice?”
Yes, I am past the 66 mark I flagged for myself and going strong. That was 33 years with less fears than the first 33 years.
Another part of the eqution is something I’ve mentioned to you all before. “Ninety per cent of the things you are worrying about will never happen!”
My wife works at Macy’s. We were told that Macy’s is shutting down 7 stores. My wife started worrying. I told her: “No use worrying. Your store probably won’t close. If it closes, you’ll probably find a different job. If you don’t find a different job, you can collect unemplyment insurance that you’ve paid for. If all else fails, we will survive without your paycheck!”
Really, why should she worry? You may ask, “What about the 10 percent of your concerns that come about?” As indicated by the previous paragraph, you’ll find an answer because…”There is always an answer, and that answer is good.”
You may ask about things that actually do turn out badly. I will tell you this: To the worrisome mind, poblems happen and complicate.
BUT: To the mind full of love and trust in Universal Good, the right answer appears and the solutions are found.
NOTE: I didn’t say that “good things happen to good people and bad things to bad people,” because that just isn’t true.
Expectation of good, trust in the Divine, worry-free conscious thought yields great results. Expectation of problems, worry, doubts and fear bring negative results.
Your fear is your downfall, every time! Choose well!
