The truly bad things that happen to us are usually short-lived.
There is that bill to be paid or that deadline to meet, but each occupies a short moment in time.
And yet, we often waste all of the moments leading up to that thing. We worry, imagine and create worst-case scenarios on our heads, when we could have been enjoying all of those drama-free moments.
There will always be something coming up that may cause concern. The unknown is like that.
Given that, we could spend our entire lives in a state of worry.
What a waste of a beautiful gift.
If we learned to say, "I will deal with that when it happens," and proceed to enjoy life, we create an emotional state that will attract good thing to us. We might even be able to lessen or avoid the "thing" that worries us.
Most of our lives happen between the pleasant and unpleasant events. That's a lot of worry to create.
Why not create "happy" instead.
