There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.

Push worry aside

To stop worrying, start focusing. To stop being distracted, get yourself fully immersed and fascinated in meaningful work.

Like everyone else, you have concerns regarding issues you cannot do anything about. If you let them, these concerns can overwhelm and disable you with negativity.

But you don’t have to let that happen. Because you can push those concerns completely out of your awareness.

To do that, focus fully on what you can control. Focus fully on the good, useful, meaningful goals you can accomplish.

An idle mind can quickly be filled with despair. By contrast, a focused, determined, purposeful mind puts you on course to achieve great things.

Worry is a waste, and you can literally put it out of your mind. Concentrate on doing the good you can do, and keep your mind happily occupied.

— Ralph Marston
