Worrying Doesn’t Take Away Tomorrow’s Troubles, It Takes Away Today’s Peace – Unknown

Are you a worry wart? Do you constantly worry about what’s going to happen tomorrow, next week, or even next year?

I think most of us fall into this category – at least every now and then. We all have that sore spot, and we tend to live too much in the future (or some, too much in the past) instead of the present.

But the truth is that the only place we can do anything about our situation is in the present. It is only now that we have a say about anything at all. What’s in the past is in the past and we cannot rewind time in any way. What comes next is only in the future’s grasp, too far out of reach.

So worrying about what troubles are to come surely is only going to take away today’s peace. Worrying about what’s going to happen in the future is like washing an already clean plate – it serves no purpose. Worrying about tomorrow will never do anything for you but make you miserable today.

Because what happens if tomorrow comes and whatever you were worrying about doesn’t happen? You will have worried for nothing, in complete vain! Isn’t it better then, to believe that only good things will come, so that at least you haven’t felt miserable for nothing?

Be a little naïve, for your own happiness sake. See every situation as something fun, something interesting. Believe that only good things will come to you. Worst case scenario, things turn out difficult every now and then, but at least you didn’t have to worry about it two weeks, two months, or maybe even two years prior.

Enjoy your now and let whatever needs to come, come. Embrace everything that is life right here and now, and you will find that it’s much easier to get through anything that is thrown at you in the future.

  1. I needed this reminder, too. It’s always such a challenge to stay in the moment and enjoy now instead of veering off into the worryland edges of the futures.

    • It sure is, Michael! It’s something we tend to do naturally, and the more excited you are about your future the more you seem to worry, even. But we just need to remember to have patience with ourselves as we’re a constant work in progress! 🙂

  2. absolutely right, dear johanna. 🙂

  3. I read this blog on wordpress (I am teenthinkingblog) and I found it so comforting! Being naïve is so often seen as a silly quality, while I ‘label’ myself as naïve too, actually. I stays difficult too not worry about things though, even if you realize it won’t bring you anything.
