Worry is like a runaway horse. If you don’t take the reins, it will runaway with you, taking the quality of your life with it. When you worry, you are fearful of some possible future event and how it will turn out. Have you noticed that most of the things you worry about never come to be? Instead of making assumptions, building false realities out of your fear of the unknown and just continuing to worry, use your worrying as a signal to take action. By accepting that not everything is within your control, and then taking the actions you can toward the outcome you desire, you will have taken the reins of your worry and directed it in a constructive manner.
