Seniorisms – Guilt, Worry & Contentment... 1-06-2018

Published on 1/6/2018
For additional information  Click Here


Please allow me to explain...

  • Guilt is being concerned with the Past...
  • Worry is being concerned about the Future...

  • Contentment enjoys the Present...

Over the years I have learned that Fear & Worry are the two most destructive forces known to mankind... I would like to venture a guess that that guilt would have to fall into that category also... I know from experience that these three things have caused me to do things that I considered to be out of my comfort zone... It took me a long time to realize that they are but mere words that can only hurt me if I allow them to have that kind of power over me... I now allow myself the luxury of taking my time to analize my options to remove all power away from those potentially harmful words...

If you allow yourself to be ruled by guilt over something you did, or didn't do you are sentencing yourself to a lifetime of living in the past... The Past is History, Tomorrow's a Mystery & Today is a Gift, that's why it's called, The Present...

If you allow yourself to be ruled by fear, you are doomed for failure because you will never take a chance on anything for fear of the unknown... Your comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there...

If you allow yourself to be ruled by worry, remember those things we worry about, in reality, seldom ever come to pass so put your mind at ease... There's a purpose for unpleasant thoughts & that is to remind us to replace them with wonderful thoughts... My Mother always told me to smile & the whole world smiles with you... Cry & you cry alone...

Follow these guidelines & you will find your way to true contentment... The guidelines are relatively simple suggestions to help you direct your mind towards a positive attitude, but difficult to live by sometimes... They grant you permission to live life on your terms... Master them & you'll realize a life free of limitations...


Signing off 'til next time this is,
