Are you worried about anything today?  Sometimes we worry about decisions we have made in the past which we can do nothing about.  Sometimes our worries have to do with what other people think about us.  Sometimes we worry about our health, and most of the time what we worry about is not worth worrying about at all.

Sometimes when we change our point of view and get above our problems we tend to see things we could not see before about a situation we may be having difficulties with.  Perhaps the answer is in stopping to talk things over with a close friend or someone who has been through similar circumstances.  Maybe all it takes is to go for a long walk or to sleep on it.  The subconscious mind has an amazing way to work things through when we are sleeping, or change our focus.  You might also try praying about something you have no answers for and is troubling you.

Whatever the difficulty may be, sometimes it is a good idea to change your way of looking at things by getting above your problems in some way. Your perspective does have a way of changing the outcome of things.  Finally, forget about worrying, because after all, it really never accomplishes anything at all.


  1. We never know where we’ll find the solutions to our problems. Sometimes we find them where we’re least expecting to.

    This is true! Sometimes, it helps me to remember the “bigger” picture in order to gain perspective. Will this make a difference in the long run? Or What’s more important in this situation? Thanks, Tony. 🙂

    So profound and meaningful, Tony! Sometimes we worry unnecessarily and cause ourselves great heartache and stress. Thank you for insightful thoughts. Blessings, my friend!

  6. “Worry is like paying interest on a debt you don’t owe.” Sometimes that is easier said than done(!!) and I still stew about stuff I shouldn’t. I inherited it from my grandma–she worried about everything 🙂 Thanks for the reminder to ‘get above’ our problems!
