Do you worry a lot? Do you have techniques that you use to deal with times that you can't help but worry? As a side note: While making this question I wrote 'worry' at least twenty times and now it is starting to sound like a foreign word...hate it when that happens. :)

I love these analogies, Renee, and it reminded me of the Guatamalen Worry Dolls, same concept. Funny aside: I bought a barrette with those worry dolls and because I'm left-handed, they stood on their heads when I had them in my hair!
Awesome! Love the can, visualization, and thought-provoking note...thanks for taking the time to answer.
Great answer Renee. I really like the idea of a worry can and I might try that.
That is really a neat thought, everything has a solution and we need to find it...
Yes, I can see how that can work!
One thing about worrying is when I am then I have to admit I am doing that thing call 'control'. LOL. I let go than. I do not need to control things around me, just my own actions and reactions.
Ironically, I had to do this today before I read your answer. My husband missed his flight, and I had to let go of the worry because I really had no control over the situation. I love the serenity prayer - something I should be saying more.
took a glance at ur impressive hub topics; wondering if ur worrying is based on actual knowledge of what can go wrong. F.C. probably works b/c of feeling of control. The statement helps me: I never worry about things over which I have no control:)
Ah...this too shall pass. I had forgotten that saying, and I used to use it all the time! I want my MTV!
Great answer. I love the thought of staying in the now, it is something that can eliminate a lot of negative emotions. Thanks!
I'm not sure why you would say I wouldn't like it. Have confidence in your beliefs! I believe both in prayer andi n councidence, and this is a great technique!
I like the action plan...it balances out the worry - or I guess even cancel it out because you find a way to solve the worry. Great suggestion. I am really into prayer myself - I find it is a great way to let go.
