The Upside of Worrying

There’s a common ground between all of us and it starts with worrying.


Everyone everywhere worries about something.


We are born to worry.


Some of us turn it off better than others but for the most part it’s always there in the back of your mind pulling at you.


Health or lack thereof can especially bring on worry. It’s one of the most important things you can worry about. It’s something that you often have little control over but it can take control of you and your entire life in a fraction of a second.







We worry about love. Love isn’t free and it isn’t all that you need but whatever you do have of it and no matter how much you have of it; you worry you will lose it.


We all lose love and find love throughout our lifetimes.


We give our love away and we take love often without really comprehending its value.


We worry about our children from the time they are born until the time we leave this world and chances are that even when we are no longer here, our souls drift off free except for the worry we carry for our children.


We worry about money. Money matters no matter what anyone tells you, no matter how many famous quotes or songs there are about money not being important; it’s essential to every living being because we need money for food, shelter and nothing is free.


We spend our entire lives worrying about what just happened and what is going to happen next.


And while we are doing so, we miss what is happening now.


The truth is that worrying is exhausting but without it, we would give little thought to everything and everyone that matters.


We all worry.


We all love.


We are all in the past and in the future even when we are in the present.


And worrying is what keeps us there.
