Can you be happy with your life now without worrying about making life better for the future?
I was trying to phrase it in a better way or differently but it comes close to what I mean
You can be happy now and plan for the future, but worrying will just cause stress that you don't need. The key, is to have a positive attitude about yourself and life, and learn to appreciate all that you have. If you do this, then planning for the future is an exercise that will give you hope rather than stress.
This is tough--especially if you have obstacles you are facing in the present. I think it is important to make an active choice to find happiness, beauty and peace whenever you can, wherever you can, on a daily basis. If you keep future concerns consciously on a separate track than everyday concerns, it is easier to deal with both and still find happiness in many small, everyday things.
I would definitely say so. Like another said, there is no point in worrying about the future. It is good to be aware of it, and make choice and live in a way that is best for the long-term, but that is all you can do. Some people always worry, think long-term, and don't enjoy the moment. If you're always looking ahead, you'll be looking ahead again when you get to the point you were looking forward to in the first place. Hope that provided some insight. Just my humble advice.
At the end of the day, happiness, is a choice. You CAN be "happy" right now, but if you're " putting on a happy face" to appease the day, the thought is always going to be in the back of your mind, which, in my opinion, is a worry.
It's true that "worry" is an unproductive approach to making life better, but the truth is, it is all in how you direct your energy.
If you make a 100% decision to tackle life with trust and without worry, you will get back what you are putting out.
I think that if you WANT to be happy, you will CHOOSE to be happy.
If you CHOOSE to be worrisome then you will fill YOUR day with unproductive thoughts.
It's a choice. And, only YOU can decide what is or isn't allowed to accompany your happiness,
Yes, I believe everything that happens to you, you have control over it. You can think positive or you can think negative, but you are in charge and whatever occurs in life, the reaction you choose to take is all on you. So yes, you can be happy in life now, by taking the right steps and making goals for yourself so that you can better your life for the future and be happy while doing it. The key is to always think positive.
It's possible, but I think it's necessary to worry (in a healthy way) about the future. What will be the consequences of the actions I commit today?, is a question we could ask.
But I think one of the most important things (as well) is that if you have a positive attitude, optimism and faith, things can go even better than you had originally planned. Who knows?

Do you have any techniques for dealing with worry?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...
