It is not work that…

Today’s proverb is, “It is not work that kills, but worry.”

Basically, hard work is good for you. Worrying about things that you can’t do anything about is bad for you.

I am an over-thinker. I mull things about in my head all the time, but I’ve learned to try and focus on things that I do have the power to change. There are more things in your control than you may realize, so before you stress yourself out think, “What can I do about this?”. Make an action plan with steps to achieve that will get you closer to whatever your goal is.

If I write at least 200 words per day over the next couple of months, I should be able to finish my novel by year’s end. This post is around 150 words, so if I write a couple of paragraphs every day my book will be done by December. Awesome.
