Trying to Stop Wondering

I think if I keep wondering then I'll use up all that time and not use it DOING something to make life better. Then I wonder if I'm not doing enough? Or the right things? Is the world just not turning my way, no matter what I do?

I guess the first step is to want life to get better. I've made some steps and I suppose those have worked out OK. It can just be hard to see results sometimes. I feel I still need to improve my life. Time to stop wondering and time to start doing???

I know what you are saying T. I worry a lot less now about things I used to freak out about years ago. I'm trying to focus on the good stuff, I think the apathy just strikes sometimes and that is what I'm working to avoid, as it brings too much negativity. I don't want anything handed to me, I just want to know the way forward so I can work in that direction.

I used to be the type of person that thought 'why doesn't the world just give me what I want'...I would always worry about the things I didn't have or I'd think positive for a day but then all of a sudden here comes the doubt...this woman told me that being genuinely positive is the key...she said to find one aspect of ur life and expand on that...she said stop worrying about what u don't want and focus on what u do want...the life u want will come to u but u can't be lazy about it either u got to put SOME effort into it with positivity and action...(I just wanted it handed to me) it sounded cheesy but I tried it...needless to say I think something worked 'cause I really worry a lot less it's crazy I now know things will work out even if I don't necessarily know's a good feeling don't know if that helps but it rang true for me, maybe it'll ring a little something for u ~ =)

I certainly feel like we can affect people and be changed by the effects of others. Or at least I know that my life changes when I meet other people.

I don't know about life; but with people, you change the world one person at a time.

I'm just thinking life improving in general, not just a few things in particular. You're partly right about being fearless, but more so, for myself I just need to be less apathetic.
