“Wise Words from Pooh”

“Supposing a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?”

“Supposing it didn’t?” said Pooh.  After careful thought Piglet was comforted by this. (A.A. Milne)

How many times do we worry about something that is never going to happen?  Or even things that could happen?

Worrying doesn’t change anything.  Worrying is not an active action that can change a situation for the better. Worrying can, however, make us feel worse.  Thinking about something that bothers us and going over and over it just serves to make us feel bad.

I am reminded of those little worry dolls that kids (or adults) can put under their pillows at night.  They actually serve a purpose in that you tell each little figure a worry and tuck it away.  The same thing can be accomplished when you write down your worries, then throw the paper away.

Give the worries a little attention, then put them away. You may be comforted by this.
