Good Morning: Shrink Your Worry List

"Shrink your worry list. Examine areas in your life where anxiety
rules. Does your worrying really make a positive difference in
those situations? If not, dump the worry." ~from Checklists for
Life      

Good morning!  

Today's quote is practical in nature, but one that
we should no-doubt embrace.

Worry has many similar characteristics to guilt. It hurts us much
more than it helps. While a little worry or a little guilt keeps
our conscious clean and our focus clear, incessant worry and guilt
are destructive.

How do you know if these emotions are constructive or destructive
in your own life? Ask yourself this simple question: Did my
(worry/guilt/insert any emotion) make a positive difference in the
situation?

If your answer is "no" then you are needlessly bringing yourself
down, and likely bringing down the people around you.

Your turn:
As you encounter guilt, worry, and other emotions today ask
yourself: "Is this making a positive difference in this situation?"
If the answer is no, say a positive affirmation to dilute the
negative emotion.

Your affirmation:
I release negative emotions from my life and replace them with
positive and constructive thoughts.
