Do you do.....?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I often wonder if I had gone in another direction if I would have found my way home? As a young person I worried about this, but now in the twilight of my days I don't worry about much. Every day in every way we make choices. Sooooooo? Now I have learned that worrying is a wasted energy and most choices take us to a better place.

I believe in the power of me. I believe I have made a difference to many and I believe I will continue to learn as long as I live. Could I have have gone in another direction? Absolutely. Would my life have been better if I had? I am not sure but I am not wasting time worrying about it.

Sheila the older we get the wiser we get and allowing of it all!  As for worrying I saw a quote the other day about it. I think you'll appreciate it!

Worrying is using your imagination for something you don't want!

I never chart my course by looking back. I've made mistakes and learned a lot but staying positive has always gotten me to a better place...

Happy Friday Sheila Anderson

Hi Sheila- many of this wonder that, especially as we get older. But I look at what I have instead of what might have been and have no complaints.

The choices I made, good and bad lead me to a beautiful happily ever after with Donald, a daughter I'm proud of and a grandson who is the center of my current universe.  I don't wonder at all where I could have made diffent choices or how things might have been... I am living my destiny.

Your thing about worrying is so right on.  I don't worry as much as some folks.  However, in recent days I had been concerned about eye surgery scheduled for next Wednesday.  The concern was about what would happen if I blinked.  I have been laying on the couch practicing trying to keep my eye open and not blink.  Today, I went in for a pre-op.  My blood pressure was 168.  It has never been more than about 130.  I finally confessed to the doctor about my concern of blinking.  He laughed and said, "Myrl, don't worry about it.  We use a device that will keep your eye open.  After the exam, they rechecked my blood pressure.  It was down to 140!

Oh Myrl. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for your surgery. However I did know about that device. Have a good weekend.    Sheila

Morning Sheila.

I've had that mindset for several years now.  Not much of anything gets my blood pressure up.

Sheila, even if you did worry about things, it wouldn't change anything.   Look forward, not backwards.

Worry is simply a waste of time, yet it's natural to have concern about unknowns. However, I guess that's when we have to remember - depression is dwelling in the past - while anxiety and worry is representative of  trying to predict the future. The only thing we really have is right now - so I'm happy you realize the past doesn't need your attention.

I like Anna's quote too - it is a fine line to be able to continue to look around and calibrate your course without looking back and stalling out or being filled with regret
