Do not be afraid…not to worry!!

Here is a thought as we get ready for a much-needed Spring Break and a time to Sharpen The Saw (Habit 7).  “I learned not to worry about having the right answer!”  This quote is taken from the book Read, Write, Lead by Regie Routman.  Many people suffer from worry.  You probably know people who seem to be worried all the time.  I have been learning about ‘worry’ and have discovered worrying makes little or no difference over the outcome of a specific concern.  Perhaps the biggest difference happens only within me as I worry, causing stress and negative vibes in my head and heart.  The more I think about the value of worrying, the more I realize it costs me.

Spring Break is upon us.  It is a time to pause, take a breath, change the scenery and go places in our minds and bodies to rest and rejuvenate ourselves.  I hope your Spring Break will be just that.  Just like Jesus said:  “Be not afraid!”  Or as a once favourite song said:  “Don’t worry, be happy!”  And…sharpen the saw!!!
