Our lives can easily become overwhelmed and consumed with a lot of unnecessary thoughts. We tend to flood our minds with things that have not yet come and those we don’t have control over. We entertain abstract ideas that take us away from what is already in front of us. We dwell with what-ifs. We worry. We busy ourselves with thoughts that do not take us anywhere. It is like riding a stationary bike; it consumes our energy and makes us tired. But it doesn’t bring us any farther.
Toxins poison the body. They destroy our immune system. Worry is a form of toxin that eats up our happiness and wipes out our bright future. Why? Because worries draw out all our energies and we have nothing left except fear and anxiety. When we are overpowered by worries, we don’t reach our destination. We lose the path to happiness.
