Don't Worry - Be Happy

Worry…worry! Why are you worrying? Are you worrying of your sweetheart if he/she is still love you and honest with you? Or you are worrying of your face on how you can make it more attractive and beautiful? Or you are worrying of your debts on how you can pay it? Or you are worrying of yourself and asking why until now you are still in unfortunate life?

Encarta Encyclopedia defines worry as “keep thinking about something: to think about a problem repeatedly in an effort to find a solution.”

Why are you worrying for something that in reality does not yet happen to you? Why not give yourself some space to relax and enjoy for a while and think for a solution? Remember you are the architect of your destiny and the author of your future! If you would continue worrying, it can only lead your life into destruction. Remember our life is short. Our life is like vapors that appears for a moment and then disappear. So therefore, do not let your life die like an insect without doing something good to yourself and to your fellowmen.

If you are feeling fake, lonely, and feeling defeated, why not encourage yourself to kneel down for a while and voice-out your errs and concerns to our Loving God? Our Merciful God said in Jeremiah 33:3, “Call me and I will answer you and show you the great and mighty things which you do not know” (NKJV). This verse emphasize that our Loving God is ready to answer you my dear readers, what shall you need to do is just go with Him, Call Him and He will give the desire of your heart! Because with God everything is possible!

Paramahan Yogananda reminds you “…not take life’s experiences too seriously. Above all, do not let them hurt you for in reality they nothing worthy but dream experiences.”

She adds, “If circumstances are bad and you have to bear them, do not make them part of you. Play your part in life, but never forget that it is only a role!”

Edmund Burke added, “The battle of life in most cases is fought uphill, and to win it without a struggle is almost like winning without honor. Difficulties may intimidate the weak, but the act only as wholesome stimulus to men of resolution and valor. All experiences of life, indeed serves to prove that the impediments thrown in the way of human advancement way, for the most part, be overcome by steady good conduct, honest zeal, activity, perseverance, and by a determination to overcome difficulties.”

Billi Lim asserted that, “Most people think that taking the easy way out or having an easy life without difficulties or problems is good. It is a very serious misconception. Who wants a tough, hard life? I for one would not like it. But what I am putting forward here is that struggle, be it physical or mental, is necessary to make us grow stronger in body and mind.”

Dr. Vincent Peale argued, “Mental control is the secret of mature and creative judgment. Your mind is an instrument designed to serve you not, not to destroy you.” Dr. Peale further argued, “When uncontrolled, your mind can be very damaging to you, but when controlled it can develop unlimited power.”

Dr. Peale pointed out why “Everywhere men and women are failing simply because they have not mastered their minds. At the same time others do amazing things through the exercise of mental control.”

Talking of mental control, I recall Dr. Napoleon Hill, my most admired author in self-improvement. Dr. Hill encourages you if you really not want to be defeated in all your life you should learn to “take charge of your thoughts, so that you can do what you want with them.”

Dr. Peale elaborates and convinced you readers, to “Know yourself. Control your mind. Think. Make right decisions. Never accept defeat. Believe in yourself. Mentally accept your great future. Never think of failing. Believe that you can if you think you can!”

My dear readers, I encouraged you, do not fear the winds of adversity. Remember, a kite rises against the winds rather than go with it!

Before I conclude, I would like you to recall this, when you are at your weakest, God is in His greatest!


Wish you many blessings to come and God Bless!
