Become a worry-slapper. Treat frets like mosquitoes. ~ Max Lucado

What did she mean by “Your hair looks nice TODAY?”painpill

What if he betrays me?

What if they don’t like my idea?

What if they don’t like me?

What if I screw up that presentation?

What if everything falls apart?

What if I don’t have enough money when I retire?

What if? What if!

You ever have one of those nights where your brain just won’t stop?

I have and let me tell you, it’s not fun to be around me when I haven’t had enough sleep!

I worry and worry and toss and turn and sing LA LA LA LA in an effort to drown out my brain and it keeps coming at me, YELLING at me, warning me, taunting me with endless doom theories and outrageous possibilities!

I’m not talking about the things I can do something about – no!

I lay awake barraged by things that are completely out of my control!

Boy that Max Lucado sure is one smart cookie!

The next time I’m laying awake with worry I’m going to pretend my worry is a mosquito


and SLAP it!!
