To worry about what will happen tomorrow or even the next hour is to waste precious time we could be using otherwise. It is time we could be spending with the loved ones in front of us or experimenting with a new dish for dinner or simply reading the next chapter in our book. Time wasted worrying is time forever lost.
Looking at children, we see how they live in the moment and not worry about what will happen tomorrow or even the next hour. They take pleasure in being present and concern themselves not much about things over which they have no control.
As children get older and see their parents worry about even the most insignificant of things, they too start to believe they should worry, for they model themselves after their parents. They learn by example and as parents we need to show them a better way. In this case, we should learn from our children and slow our worries by living in the moment more often.
There is a reason for all things which happen. The misfortunes which come our way will one day be balanced out by good. It might not happen at the moment we wish it or think we need it but eventually good fortune will show up in our lives. It is only when we start to look for the good instead of everything bad that we will live a happier and more fulfilled life.
The future will eventually come. Minute by minute, hour by hour, the days pass us by and we will get to where we need to go...eventually.
