I thought I’d share some quotes about worrying, just because I’m hearing lots of worrying these days. I’ll be completely honest. Many of these I’ve used so many times and for so long that I don’t even know where they came from, so I can’t give a righteous attribution. I’m sorry, but I’m not gonna worry about it.

Your brain thinks that by worrying, it’s actually doing something about a problem. It’s not.
Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.” Leo Buscaglia
Don’t worry, be happy.
“There were many terrible things in my life and most of them never happened.” Michel de Montaigne

“Don’t worry about a thing, ’cause every little thing gonna be alright.” three little birds

Love, and light in the shadows,
Oh. I almost forgot. “What, me worry?” Alfred E. Neuman
