English Proverb On Worrying...

Now here is a fun English Proverb that I heard about worrying:



Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair,


It gives you something to do...


But it doesn't get you anywhere.











Don't waste your time worrying...life is too short.

Spend your time doing things that will not only keep you
from worrying, but will make you happy!

Hi Lisa- I wasn't familiar with that one but it makes a lot of sense.

Very true!  I've spent enough rocking chair time to attest to the accuracy of that proverb!

Morning Lisa.

Exactly, there is not much of anything that causes me to worry.  I know I'm in the last 15-20 years of my life, I 'm not going to leave it worried

My favorite one is by a friend of ours...she says:  "You cannot love and worry at the same time!"

I don't ever worry when I have a rocker to while away the hours. The one pictured looks like it'd be a great fit.
