Two Things Not to Worry About

Worry is a misuse of imagination.

~Dan Zadra

In my life, I have found there are two things about which I should never worry.

First, I shouldn’t worry about the things I can’t change. If I can’t change them, worry is certainly most foolish and useless.

Second, I shouldn’t worry about the things I can change. If I can change them, then taking action will accomplish far more than wasting my energies in worry.

Besides, it is my belief that, nine times out of ten, worrying about something does more danger than the thing itself. Give worry its rightful place — out of your life.
