A worry is a prayer...

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine that goes through episodes of anxiety once told me, "A worry is a prayer for something to go wrong." I always remember this when going through times of uncertainty..when my mind likes to take control of my thoughts and makes me obsessively worry .. mostly unnecessarily ..about things I can't control. Hope it helps someone else. I remember it and it calms me instantly.

I couldn't agree more. Whatever we focus on becomes bigger, which is why it's ironic that so much of the Herpes Opportunity is to get all the knowledge you need about herpes in order to stop focusing on it so much. If we focus on the shame and all the reasons herpes will be a dealbreaker for us and anyone we come in contact with, then it will magically become exactly that for us. But if we become knowledgeable on the basics about herpes, we realize it's just a skin condition that doesn't define us. Then we can focus on all the great things about us and the great things about life ... and all of those things to be truly grateful for get bigger and bigger. That's what it's all about. Yep, Bobby McFerrin said it best: "Don't worry. Be happy."
