Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy. – Leo Buscaglia
reasons for worry
How can we stop worrying? There’s so much to do, much that needs our attention, relationships to tend and a never ending list of new things that keep cropping up! We’re responsible for family and self, how can we not worry? Right?
1st Principle to Overcome Worry: Live in “day tight compartments.”
Here’s a bit of background on this principle from this site:
“This term was first coined by Sir William Osler when he encountered this life-changing quote from Thomas Carlisle, “It is not our goal to see what lies dimly in the distance but to do what clearly lies at hand.”
Why worry when we can live in joy now and today? Let’s live in ‘day tight compartments’. By doing that we get accustomed to focusing on the here and the now. We deal with issues based on their relevance to today, only. Let’s try it!
