So very true! Something I've had to discipline myself to do, coming from a long line of worrywarts. It's hardwired.

This related quote appears this week in Cheryl Richardson's newsletter (

"Do not waste worry. If you're going to worry, worry well. Put that
energy to good use; aim it at an answer. Don't forget: Nothing diminishes
anxiety faster than action." --Walter Anderson

My favorite quote on all this, though, is from Duke Ellington: "I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues."

Guess I'd better get busy.


This topic is very relevant for me. I am a very good worrier and fortunately I've become more aware of the anxiety that I have. That being said, I don't always take the action that I need to. But I will work harder to remember the above quotes. Thanks!

This reminds me of a quote I read somewhere. Don't know who originated it though.

"To worry will solve a problem as effectively as using chewing gum as a hammer."
