Needless Worry!

 "When you worry, you go over the same ground endlessly
and come out the same place you started.
 Thinking makes progress
from one place to another; worry remains static.
The problem of life is to change worry into thinking
and anxiety into creative action."
                                Harold B. Walker.


We think we have problems
We all have those days. Worrying about things we have no control over. This would be me rationalizing my feelings.

Sometimes you feel all alone.


Even the smallest things to others, seems overwhelming to you.
Everything is all jumbled together in your head.
There seems to be an obstacle at every turn.
You have to find your way around the thing standing in your way.
You will find yourself again.
You will break free.
You are strong, things will work out.


Later.

I wonder how much most of us have shortened our lives with worry?

Worry has been called the greatest form of atheism.

Just let God.

I grew up and was raised by a Mother who was in constant fear and worry..and as the saying goes, children learn what they live...I broke that cycle...when I broke free from my family..
I live each day as pleasant as possible, whatever needs dealt with will be dealt with ...when it comes...not a minute before..
"Don't Worry Be Happy"...can't change it anyway
~~PEACE~~

It is definitely not an easy cycle to break free from and it requires constant awareness. I am a big worrier and dweller so I speak from experience. Your pictures are perfect examples of the feelings in you caption. I like them.

I had a friend that used to say to me "worrying will kill you". I was one who had to be in control of every aspect of my life. When I had a heart attack at the age of 48 my doctor told me that if I didn't change I'd never see 50. I started taking life one day at a time and I've made it another 22 years.

Your pictures a wonderful.

Well said, Button. It's difficult not to worry when the obstacles appear so big. But, as your lens shows, sometimes the angle and the point of view can over-magnify the problems.

It looks like you have a good perspective and just need to give yourself some room to breathe.

I love that quote from Harold and the pictures are amazing. It is true that we should never worry about things we can not control.

lovely the old hickory tree. i feel bad for the one with the chain though...

my great-grandma was a worrier. if someone was ten minutes late, she already had a worst-case scenario running through her head.

Cheers Maa.
