agree 100%

My mom always told me to call her when I was leaving for the 400 mile drive to visit her so she would know when to start worrying. She didn't want to waste time worrying for nothing! LOL

Yep - I agree!!! I believe in the serenity prayer:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

Add me to the Agree column, and also second the Serenity Prayer.

And when I have to make a decision, I base it on common sense and logic.

I agree, but I am a big worrier! It is awful sometimes.

I am too Yoga. I have to make the effort to turn off the worry button.

My Dad called me Worry-wart. But if worry means that we go to effort to plan well to avoid problems, then I think a little worry is a good thing.

I agree. I have also learned, since my two bouts with cancer, not to sweat the small stuff.

Agree! I am a worrier and almost nothing that I have worried about has come to pass. Sigh. Trying to not worry so much!

Agree, my husband tells me almost the same thing all the time, I wish I could live that way...

I agree!

But, I think maybe a little worrying about some things can help find a solution to a problem. You think it over more.

Notice, I said a LITTLE...

Absolutely,I'm a big worrier. Most things I worry about never happen. And worrying never improves the situation anyway. If it's gonna be bad, so be it.

I agree 100%. My other name for DH is Chicken Little :-( Very depressing.

I agree, but like wantoretire_did, DH is a worrier. He's stressing about something now. I keep telling him, it will either happen or it won't. Losing sleep every night is not going to change the outcome. (I was this way about the Y2K thing as well :-) .)

I agree, but the message could be interpreted to mean you'll be "totally Grasshopper" and never "Ant".

The key is the word "worry", which means to be *overly* anxious, concerned, fearful, disturbed, etc. I like to picture a secondary meaning: "The dog *worried* the bone." He dragged it around with his teeth, chewing it over. He's completely occupied with his worrying!

Agree, but I think with love comes worry naturally. We worry about those we love....their safety, their health, etc.

Well, who wouldn't agree? But I think for some it's easier said than done.

Considering the issue and working toward forestalling some potential difficulties is useful.

But worryin' don't achieve nuthin!

'Cept get the worrier all hot and bothered ... more or less in a stew pot.
