It’s a time stealer, a peace sipper, a life subtracter. It keeps you awake at night and makes your head tangled and occupied in your waking hours. It’s the archenemy of tranquility, the disturber of every peaceful retreat – worry.

“What if?”

“What if he didn’t come?”

“What if I don’t know the answers?”

Worry assumes to be friendly and a faithful reminder, but it’s not. It seeps in quietly into our mind and blooms in it as long as you entertain it. The questions loop until you’re left with nothing but exhaustion and pessimistic feelings.

After hours of worrying, you’re still left in the same spot with no changes in outcome. Why? Because you just worried, you didn’t do anything about it!

Taking the actions you can do is one of the best worry repellant. Instead of asking, “What if it didn’t work?” Ask, “What I can do anything to make sure it would work?” Learn and do everything in your power to change the course.

If you’re in the bed worrying if you have closed the door, wake up and check if the door is closed, if not, then close it. There are people that let that kind of simple issue ruin their sleep.

Don’t worry about your son’s tuition fee if you have four hours of free time, find an extra work and do the job. C’mon, it’s for your son’s future!

Don’t worry about your final examination, stop posting your petty worries on Facebook, then open the book!

Don’t worry about what others might think of you, just always do the right thing and be honest.

That approach would always work. Don’t expend your energy baking the problem in your head, if you can find the solution, then go cook and implement it! As Jim Rohn said, "If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree."

And when you’re finished doing your best, then trust. Trust that whatever might happened, you won’t have regrets. As the classic saying goes, do your best and let God do the rest.
