Worry - Or Pray and Take Inventory

It is so easy to worry. With all the conveniences and connections in modern society, ending up overwhelmed and full of doubt and worry is almost inevitable. But, there is a better way. Finding it involves going against the current, but the battle is worth it. To begin, look at priorities. Decide and pray about what's important and what sort of legacy you want to leave behind. From there, look at each hour of your day, week, or month and decide how it should be spent (yes, sleep is a priority). Is the way you're spending your time now demonstrative of your values? In other words, would an outsider be able to see what you value just by watching you? If not, it's time for a change.  Solidifying your priorities will remove the other mental clutter and leave far less to worry about. Who knows, the worry may all but vanish completely.
