My friend Brent doesn’t worry. He says he outsources his worry to the Universe.
He figures there is no point in worrying about things that you have no control over. I agree wholeheartedly. If your worrying isn’t going to make a difference why bother? Why invest energy in something that at best has no positive benefit and more than likely has a negative effect on your mood?
Even worse worrying consumes your attention and prevents you from fully enjoying whatever is good at the present moment.
By outsourcing his worry, Brent is acknowledging that something is bothersome, but not letting it bother him. Meanwhile the Universe usually does take care of things so it all works out. Its brilliant.
Worry dolls and buddhist Yogi carvings can serve the same purpose. You assign your worries to these dolls and as the myth goes, they make them disappear. Ahhh. Namaste.
