If you worry about it, you don’t need to

Good news today! The things your mind worries about will be sorted out soon. Sooner than anything else in your life.

If you realise what your worries are – the little ones that chatter in your mind one day, or prevent you from falling asleep at night – you’ll realise how soon they will be taken care of.

It’s the things you don’t realise that actually need more noticing. Not the other way round. Say you are doing a new dance class and you feel you are the worst student. You leave so disappointed you feel like crying, “I am worried I will never be as good as the other students”, you think. But think less. You wanted to be like the other students so bad that you forget to pay attention to how much better you got at moving your feet. So instead, you worry.

Isn’t worrying simply a symptom of how much you care? And don’t we know that everything that is cared for, grows beautifully? Isn’t that the case of trees, families, friendship and even skills?

Realise that worrying is nothing but a stressed-out version of: I care. And understand that everything that is cared for solves itself. Worrying is a part of the growing equation that can be completely eradicated from your dreams. Try to focus instead, on the little things that pass unnoticed. Nurture those things, and let the rest unfold naturally, just like it will.
