Worry is a Wasted Emotion
We all have worries, especially during a global pandemic. What often gets forgotten is that we are in charge of this wasted emotion. We have to remember that worry will often paralyze us, or at the very least prevent us from fully experiencing the present that is so valuable. When you start to feel worry creep into your emotions and affect your ability to stay present, remember this perspective: worry does nothing for you. Stop and think about what you are worrying about for just a moment. Is it something that you can do anything about? If it is, then shift your gears and get busy doing it. If it is not something that you can affect, then let it go. Do not allow things that you cannot impact to have control over your emotions.
They lose the day in expectation of the night, and the night in fear of the dawn.
