  1. I had a lot to worry about with my late husband. Of course I knew worrying doesn’t change the outcome, but it honestly felt like if I didn’t worry, there was something to worry about and if I did worry, I was worrying for nothing. Do you know what I mean? Like jinxing, I guess.

      Yes, I do know what you mean. I have had those worry don’t worry thoughts myself. And if I worried I was better prepared if there was something to worry about. Crazy. lol

  2. You are just like me, Victoria. I was such a worrier as a younger person. Not that I’ve totally stopped now, but I am definitely better about it. Maybe that’s one of the reasons I would never want to go back to when I was younger? I feel so much more secure in my self now! (besides the fact that my husband worries for both of us…ha ha)

  3. the only thing that keeps me “up at night” (in my case literally) is health… every time my husband or little girl cough or sneeze at night, I’m there… lying awake, worrying that they are getting sick 🙁
    I guess for me it’s a loss of control, having to change all the schedule last minute. Silly, right?

      Yes I read that part after I had linked and couldn’t figure out how to remove. Won’t happen again and so sorry for this time.

  5. Ah, where’s the music post??
    I included you in the list of participants which means you should have a music post up and then go visit the other participating folks and leave comments for them. That’s how this works…
    If you have one up, I can’t find it. Let me know. thanks.

  6. You’re absolutely right about worrying stealing our time. I heard a saying a few years ago that said, “95% of the stuff we worry about never happens”. I started mind exercises about 3 years to master my thoughts, so my mind doesn’t master me, and I have to say it’s like doing a sit-up, you get better and better at taking control of your thoughts when you practice. Very few things rent space in my head now.

      Good for you. I seem to as I get older worry about very little and when I do find myself worrying I put a stop to it.

  7. My daughter is a worrier while I am not. My question to her is always “when has worrying ever changed the outcome?” And I remind her of this verse: Matthew 6:27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Thanks for sharing at The Blogger’s Pit Stop!

  8. Wow, this really resonates with me as well. I lost so much sleep in my younger years due to worrying. I think we do realize with time how little worrying accomplishes and we are able to let it go. I sleep better now than I ever have in my entire life. And most likely it is due to less time spent worrying and more time realizing that with good sleep I can accomplish great things when I am awake. Really great post! Thanks so much for sharing and for linking up with me!
