We are human. We make mistakes, we have opinions and we have feelings. We also have a propensity for worrying — especially about things that lie outside of our control.

We worry about terrorism, but continue to eat fast food even though heart disease is the number one killer in the U.S.

We worry about who will be elected president, yet continue voting in local officials who have proven themselves unworthy and have far greater impacts on our lives.

We worry about the country’s national debt more than our own (or that of our college grads).

Why do we spend so much time worrying about things that don’t affect us and little time on things that have large impacts on our lives? Where is our focus?

Let go of those things. Spend more time worrying where it counts. Your life will be vastly improved.
