More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.

Worry is a darkroom where negatives develop.

Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace.

Never tell someone who’s freaking out ‘Life is too short to worry.’ Really, think about it. You’re just giving them one more thing to worry about—that they’re missing out on life because they’re worrying. Instead, try, ‘I understand. Life can be scary. I’m here for you if you need me.’

There’s a difference between caring about what others think and worrying about it. When you care about what other people think, you respect and value their opinions. When you worry about, you depend on their validation for your worth. So keep caring. Keep treating people like they matter. Just know that you matter too, whether they confirm it or not.

Don’t worry if someone does not like you. Most people are struggling to like themselves.

I will breathe. I will think of solutions, I will not let my worry control me. I will not let my stress level break me. I will simply breathe. And it will be okay. Because I don’t quit.

People tend to dwell more on negative things than on good things. So the mind then becomes obsessed with negative things, with judgments, guilt and anxiety produced by thoughts about the future and so on.

P.S. You’re not going to die. Here’s the white-hot truth: if you go bankrupt, you’ll still be okay. If you lose the gig, the lover, the house, you’ll still be okay. If you sing off-key, get beat by the competition, have your heart shattered, get fired…it’s not going to kill you. Ask anyone who’s been through it.

Do not dwell on the past. Your history cannot be erased, but your future has yet to be written, so make the most of what is going to happen instead of worrying about what you cannot change.

I want to live my life without stress and worries, I don’t need to be rich or famous, I just want to be happy.

Worry pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.

Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it.

Rule number one is, don’t sweat the small stuff. Rule number two is, it’s all small stuff.

Children are happy because they don’t have a file in their minds called ‘All the Things That Could Go Wrong.’

Worry trades the joy of now for the unlikely catastrophes of later.

Worry does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It takes away today’s peace.

Slow down. Calm down. Don’t worry. Don’t hurry. Trust the process.

Stop worrying about what can go wrong and get excited about what can go right.

There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.
