It Is What It Is – Harvest the Good and Forgive the Rest
When was the last time you found yourself worrying? About health, money, debt, kids, elderly parents, job, your future?
Today we are going to give you some tips and methodologies on how to stop worrying.
Truthfully, worrying is a complete waste of time, it is a waste of thought energy and we know this, but we still do it. We think it is uncontrollable but it’s not. We just haven’t focused on stopping it, we don’t have a methodology.
Worrying is like praying for something that you don’t want.
When you worry you are putting thought energy towards something that you don’t desire.
Whenever you have something going on in your life, no matter how tragic or horrific, or however grave you think it is or seems to be, the first thing to do is go to the phrase” it is what it is.”
Most of what is going on is an external stimulus and most of the time there is not much that we can do about it. This may seem overly simple or even cold but it’s a protection mechanism to calm your mind.
We seem to magnify and dramatize most things we go through in life. You can either Internalize and self-destruct or you can say “it is what it is.”
Harvest the good and forgive the rest. Because life goes on. When you look back, you’ll realize it wasn’t that big of a deal the majority of the time.
Nothing is as bad as it seems or what we make it out to be. So why not understand that right at the time of the stimulus, whatever it is?
Worry puts the mind in a state of confusion. It is impossible to solve problems when you are in a low vibration or a state of worry or confusion. That alone should signal you to not put energy towards worrying.
Worry causes stress that leads to panic attacks and nervous breakdowns and eventually heart attacks.
