"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
This verse was written over two thousand years ago, and we're still trying our very best to apply it today, with limited success to say the least. How many hours a day, days in a week, and hours of sleep lost do we go through in our lives worrying?
Peace of mind is absolutely precious. Millions of dollars were paid for 'gurus' to teach us how to achieve peace of mind. Thousands of tools, systems and processes were developed and created over the century to help us manage our lives in order to have inner calm. Psychologists and therapist are more in demand now more than ever to help people deal with anxiety and stress.
In an ideal world, we can separate our minds from our worries, compartmentalizing it to be dealt with in future at the right time and place. There should be a 'cabinet' where we can chuck our worries into, and not to be 'touched' again during our family time, personal time and sleeping time. There is a proper time and space to tackle the 'contents' in the 'cabinet' with 100% focus to systematically reduce them periodically.
For those who identify with this message, do not give up on achieving the 'ideal' state. Intentional steps forward will definitely bring forth improvement. Keep going! 💪
