Worry is a silent killer.
It is like a slow poison. In fact, it is an illness which can be more dreadful than a physical illnesses. Worry not only affects our body but our mind and well being too.
If you think seriously my lovelies, you would find that it is really no use worrying about anything. It is really foolish to worry about past or future. Nobody can change the past. Whatever has happened has happened. It is how we react that matters! As for the future, how can something that has yet to come to pass affect us? How are we so certain that the future is so bleak?

I like to label them like this instead of allowing them to becomes seeds of worry, which are potent. These daily challenges really are not going to mean diddly squat in 5 years time.
