Ever WORRY about ANYTHING?
"Life is too short."
" Don’t take your days for granted."
"Hug your loved ones- you never know what could happen."
" You think you have it bad…someone has it worse."
" We never know what tomorrow will bring. Live today like it is your last!"
I hear this all the time- I used say it all the time!
Were people saying this back in the 80’s? Were they even thinking it? Were people going around telling others to learn their lessons, find their purpose and count their blessings? Were people saying hashtag blessed? And showing you their hilights in life just for you to compare your, what seems to be boring life, now? Or showing you all that is wrong in the world constantly for you to fear?
SO much pressure these days, am I right?
From what I remember of the 80’s was all good. It was easy. It was living life free with no worries or cares. Was this the reality of the 80’s or was this the reality of me being a child?
I was a child in the 80’s and I thought those were the best years ever…..my mom even says- “best years of her life”. Now thinking of it, she was just a kid too (having me at age 17).
What was it about back then? Why was it so much easier and why can't it be like that now?
"Why does being an adult have to be so hard?”
Why is (you know this is coming) but why is the news always bad?
Why is it that we have created so much fear and worry about the things we can't control?
I guess it is because we are living in a world now that is different. It is different than the 1980’s. BUT, that doesn’t mean it's worse. Is it because our world is getting worse?
No, absolutely not! We just KNOW MORE NOW. We are more advanced. We learn the news and updates of EVERYONE in the speed of light. What used to take weeks or months to get to us is updated every minute it seems.
The world is not getting worse. We are just getting smarter. We know more. We are evolving. This is a great thing. We are constantly creating new ways to heal and help and grow.
It is good. A little to fast pace? Maybe. This is your chance to slow down. If the news bothers you- remove yourself for a few weeks from it. If you are burdened by the constant feed on FB or IG, take a freaking break.
YOUR MENTAL HEALTH IS NUMBER ONE right now. Do things that feel GOOD (aka GOD) more and focus less on what is stressin ya out!
Try to find the Good News. Stop absorbing the bad. All of this is just energy. Bad energy drains you. Good energy REVIVES YOU! You pick.
❤️ WORRYING WILL NOT GAIN YOU ANOTHER DAY ON THIS EARTH….….WORRYING WILL NOT TAKE SICKNESS AWAY….WORRYING WILL NOT PAY THE BILLS….WORRYING WILL NOT BRING YOU ANYTHING GOOD THAT YOU WANT OR NEED.
Worrying brings you only one thing...MORE WORRY!
👉Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. ”
😊This world is not bad. It is not becoming bad. Back in the day there were troubles too. You might think that there were not as many issues back then but I can assure you there were problems then too. Most of us might have just been too young to remember.
Now we have kids. We want them to look back at these days as “the good old days” right? Because that is all they will ever know and remember from their childhood, this, this present moment. Make it good, if not for you for them. You have the choice- Live in fear or live in faith.
🌟Let’s make these years good—GOOD FOR OTHERS and good for you.
Together we can. Positive thoughts and prayers and spreading the love to all. You might not think your one kind gesture matters, but I can assure you it does.
In 20 years from now – I want my kids to say to me- ❤️“Mom, remember when we were little how great it was?”….”Yes, honey—those were the best years!”❤️
