Can it alter the cause, or unravel the mystery of human events? -Paxton Blair

23. Nobody should ever look anxious except those who have no anxiety. -Benjamin Disraeli

24. Worry affects the circulation, the heart, the glands,the whole nervous system, and profoundly affects the health. I have never known a man who died from overwork, but many who die from doubt. -Charles W. Mayo

    I thought number 9 was hilarious! It really made me laugh, which in itself is therapeutic to the soul, along with the great wisdom of the words themselves. So in essence, it had a two-fold effect. Thank you very much.

    Hello Shawn, I once use to worry about everything in my life, then one day I realized nothing changed through my worry. Things happen in life that we have no control over and then life changes and other things evolve, nothing ever stays the same, so all that worry was a waste of time.

    Great quotes favourite, 15;16;17;18;

    Here are some thoughts I would like to share:

    The secret to life is living it one day at a time.

    Our lives are made up of a million moments spent in a million different ways. Some are spent searching for love, peace and harmony. Others are spent surviving day to day. But there is no greater moment than when we find that life, with all its joys and sorrows, is meant to be lived one day at a time.

    It is in this knowledge that we discover the most wonderful truth of all. Whether we live in a forty-room mansion, surrounded by servants and wealth, or find it a struggle to manage from month to month, we have the power to be fully satisfied and live a life with true meaning.

    One day at a time, we have that ability through cherishing each moment and rejoicing in each dream. We can experience each day anew, and with this fresh start we have what it takes to make all of our dreams come true.

    Each day is new, and living one day at a time enables us to truly enjoy life and live it to the fullest.

    Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will not change. Yet I can change by choosing to do so.

    Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there waiting for me to make the most of it.

    Beginning today I will look in the mirror, and I will see a person worthy of my respect and admiration. This capable person looking back at me is someone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better.

    Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life. I value this gift and unselfishly share it to enhance the lives of others.

    Beginning today I will take a moment to step off the beaten path to revel in the mysteries I encounter. I will face challenges with courage and determination. I will overcome barriers that hinder my growth.

    Beginning today I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time. Discouragement will not taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed, or my capacity to love.

    Have a wonderful day!
