What should we be worried about? We should worry about a lot of things like will we have social security when we retire? Will I have enough money to send my children to college? Will our government improve or get worse? Will I graduate from college? Will we have jobs after we graduate?

Worry about Worrying

When we should worry, is when we stop advancing to the next step. When advancing stops, learning stops, better living stops, and it will seem as though the world stops in place. The biggest worry someone should think about is when he or she hits that point in life that they, “stop in an era”. You think it’s funny, but individuals literally find an era in time and as time goes forward they stay put. This is when the person stops learning, stops accepting change, and time stands still for them even though it has not to everyone else. Always keep an open mind and always learn, and you should have no worry of where life takes you.
