Peace of Wisdom
Fear of the Future

By Andy Andrews

What if the economy tanks? What if you get a bad report from the doctor? What happens if a hurricane hits?

There’s a song called “What Ifs,” that says “We could worry about the “what ifs” till the world stops turnin”.

We live in a time of anxiety and uncertainty.  Then again, we always have. If ninety percent of what we worry about never happens, why waste 90% of our time being afraid? 

Worry, anxiety, and fear are thieves out to rob you of your precious present

We can turn “what if” on its head. What if you find a way to fly above economic conditions?  What if you live a joyful, healthy life?  What if a hurricane clears the nasty vacant lot next to your house?  

We can’t control the future, but we don’t have to live in fear. We can–and should—focus on the things we can do something about. We can be fully present with our loved ones and be thankful for every day.  

Today’s Peace of Wisdom can be found in embracing the happier tomorrow that’s already on the way!
