Is there something that you are worrying about today? Worry is an absolute disaster that prevents us from becoming the best version of ourselves and living a happy, joyful, and blissful life.

Worry not only causes anxiety and fear, but strips us completely of our peace and joy. Not only does it strip us of our peace and joy, but it sends men and women to the graveyard prematurely. Yes, there are people who literally worry themselves to death. Death is obviously the extreme case, but to just know that worry kills people should provide us with enough evidence that worry serves no beneficial purpose in our lives.

When we worry, we can’t sleep. We aren’t productive. We aren’t eating healthy. We let life simply pass us by while we are neglecting what’s important.

Decide today to put an end to all of the worry in your life. The next time you feel yourself worrying over something, think of a past accomplishment, count your blessings, or simply just smile!

Don’t you dare let worry get the best of you. As you focus on your strengths and continually count your blessings, you’ll drive out worry and welcome in peace and joy.
