Don't worry, cause worrin' is like prayin' for what you don't want" -Bob Marley
I am a firm believer that the more you worry about something - the more likely it is that it will come to you.
What you resists persists. Sounds like I am preaching The Secret, but I don't think I am.
I just believe God is expecting us to have faith that good things will happen - even when our minds and hearts might think otherwise. This is extremely hard for me - I work at being positive even when (at times) I don't feel positive.
And it is made harder when you have negative people - toxic people - around. It's like you have to fight their negativity while trying to hold up your positivity.
Don't you think it's good to try to be positive? Do you think that's what God wants is to do?
I heard a saying that goes something like this - faith is like stepping on the first step of a stairway when you're in the dark. It's there, but you can't see it. You go by faith.
I know when you have a serious loss or you are in crisis it's different - I'm talking about plain ordinary everyday living.
You get up in the morning - you start thinking - then comes the choice - am I going to be happy today or unhappy? You put your feet down on the floor and go forth.
What happens next?
Happy Birthday - Olivia Hussey - Wikipedia
Hussey was married first to actor Dean Paul Martin (son of the famous Rat Pack singer/actor, Dean Martin) in 1971 (he reportedly fell in love with her after seeing Romeo and Juliet, and sought her out). They had a son, Alexander Dean Martin (later an actor), in 1973, before divorcing in 1978. Dean Paul Martin met an untimely death in 1987 when his National Guard F-4 Phantom fighter jet crashed in California's San Bernardino Mountains during a snowstorm. Fourteen-year-old Alexander had watched his father take off on the ill-fated flight.
In 1980 Hussey married Japanese musician Akira Fuse, and had one son, Max (born 1983). Divorced from Fuse in 1989, she married American musician David Glen Eisley in 1991. In October 1993, she gave birth to a daughter, India Eisley, now an actress who plays a series regular on the ABC Family teen drama The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
She has suffered from agoraphobia, which she decided to treat with meditation rather than medication. She has suffered from anorexia.
