Worry is a prayer for what you don’t want. — John Assarf, The Answer.
It seems the only news is about the virus, and very little of it is good. Suzy decided I needed a good pick me up, so she gave me an article that including the quote above. She knew that my lawyerly “what if” brain was working overtime contemplating things like “what if the economy tanks?”; “what is going to happen to our children?”; etc. It is natural for most of us to immediately go to the worst “what if’s” rather than considering the best possible outcome.
The article reminded me that “the world is designed with the duality of what is and what isn’t in every situation.” For every negative possible outcome in my future there is an equally positive outcome. It is up to me to always consider every positive as much as I worry about the negative.
In sports you are taught to believe in the best result so much so it becomes reality. I need to take that same attitude to the current situation.
