THE DAILY GROOVE ~ by Scott Noelle
:: Worry Less, Love More ::
Perhaps you've been led to believe that worrying
about children goes hand in hand with loving them.
But in truth, parental love is far more powerful
*without* worry than with it.
Worries focus all your attention on what you *don't*
want and put you in a state of *fear*. This sends a
message to your child that you *expect* bad things
to happen. And since children naturally tend to meet
their parents' unspoken expectations, worries are
Today, if you catch yourself worrying, don't worry
about it. :-)
Instead, use your awareness of worry to shift your
focus in the direction of what you *do* want, and
reach for thoughts that soothe your worries:
"It's not the end of the world."
"It won't last forever."
"I've successfully handled worse situations."
"We always find our way."
Before long you'll start feeling hopeful, and you'll
feel your heart opening, too. An open heart is all
you need for love to flow unconditionally...
unhindered by worries.
