don't worry...it's friday!


don't worry be happy...

why worry if you pray, why pray if you worry...

worry is interest on a debt you may never have to pay...

worry is meditation on a bad outcome...

being a new mom and not working has created a whole new level of worry for me. will we have enough money to cover the bills? is beatrice getting everything she needs? what if the car breaks down? what if, what if, what if...

people have said all the above sayings about "worry" to me before, but today someone said to me worry is meditation on a bad outcome, right before i was about to go to yoga. to meditate...and it really made perfect sense...i spend time meditating not necessarily to control the outcome, i know i can't do that, but to let go of worry and to invite love & light into our lives. so why do i go home and sit up at night worrying, meditating on a bad outcome? of course worry will creep into my thoughts now and again, but i have tools to keep it at bay--prayer, meditation, and the knowledge that the universe will take care of us. i just have to remember to use them.

it's patty's birthday this weekend, so we're having a potluck brunch at the house. it will be the first "event" we're having at the house since beatrice was born...

so have a wonderful, safe, happy weekend and don't worry!

And thank you. I love this. This is really helpful to me. I've been doing a lot of thinking about putting my emotional energy into the places where I want energy back, and letting the rest go. This helps.
