Frey Freyday – Worry (don’t worry)

(Frey Freyday is simply a bunch of inspirational, motivational and other quotes meant to make you think, reflect, smile, even laugh a bit. Hopefully helpful, useful stuff….)

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.-Leo Buscaglia

A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work.-John Lubbock

You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.-Walter Hagen

To be a champion, you have to learn to handle stress and pressure. But if you’ve prepared mentally and physically, you don’t have to worry.-Harvey Mackay

I think my mother… made it clear that you have to live life by your own terms and you have to not worry about what other people think and you have to have the courage to do the unexpected.-Caroline Kennedy

Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.-Dale Carnegie

Worry is a technique you created to fill the moments of your life. –Wayne Dyer

Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.-Charles M. Schulz

Worry: [wur-ee, wuhr-ee] – to torment oneself with or suffer from disturbing thoughts; fret.

Worrying is a learned habit. (It can be unlearned) Worrying is almost always useless. It has been said that worrying is like praying for bad things to happen. Worrying makes us feel worse, it makes us focus on things we don’t want, it makes us tense and unhappy, it takes us away from what we do want or hope for. We can interrupt the pattern of worrying anytime we want. We can choose to think of good things, hope for good outcomes, or even simply stop worrying and take action instead!

In our society, sometimes some of us think that worrying shows love or caring for another. Traditionally our grandmothers and mothers would say something like, “I worry about you” and maybe they sometimes mean, “I care about you.” We can care about someone or love them without worrying about them.

Instead of worrying, think about good things for our loved ones. Instead of worrying, write a list of things you’re grateful for, happy about, hopeful for, action steps – or just go take action. Write someone a quick positive letter instead of worrying. Send out some good energy!

I’ve heard someone say that ‘Worry makes us immobilized in the present moment as a result of things that may or may not happen in the future, or things that have already happened and we can’t change.’ So why do it? Does it help? No! Is it useful, no.

Frey Freyday was actually born out of something I created called “Words To Live By” (WTLB).
Going forward, I will now not only share the quotes, as you may be used to receiving, but also
a related (WTLB). In 1999, when we had our first daughter, I was contemplating how I would
raise my new beautiful child, and I was thinking about how I can best educate her and my other
children about values, morals, and other key thoughts about life. School offers education.
Religion offers some values and morals. Parents offer most of it, sometimes intentionally,
sometimes accidentally.

So I created a (WTLB) book, like a dictionary, which lists things like honesty, love, persistence, etc.
with a definition that I created, with my wife’s input. I then turned it into a workbook with one
word per page and space below for notes. For years we would discuss with my two daughters and
they would draw pictures and make notes in the blank space. I may share some of those images
with you. As they got older, they were less inclined to draw and more open to quotes and
references from adults, hence where Frey Freyday came from….
