I can barely imagine my life without these thoughts. For a while that is quite scary. I realize that my life had its share of ups and down, I wished that I could go back. However, that is impossible. I don't want to go back now. The good thing about have these thoughts is about being wiser as one grows older. I have just realized that life is just too short to worry. I have also realized that I am worrying over nothing due to my anxiety. It is interesting that the Bible says be anxious for nothing. I guess it means that whatever the reason or whatever the need, we can present our requests to the Lord. For me, being free of anxiety is very, very hard. I have to remember that greater is He who is in me that who is in the world. If only I have learned this lesson earlier.
