I have been a worrier by whole life. It was’t till recently I realized that worrying didn't help resolve any problems, but only made me feel bad. I also believe many physical problems have been partly a result of worry.
Through a lot of meditation, contemplation, reading, and paying attention to my thoughts and feelings, I have come to a different way of thinking. My attitude now is that feeling good is the most important thing. When I get in he state of appreciation, love, joy, and being happy; my whole body feels a exalted vibration. This feeling of joy and love, is so much better than anything I was worrying about having.
Given a choice I would rather have this exalted feeling than all the wants I worried about. More money, a lover, or other things, can only add to my already state of happiness, not be the way to happiness.
