Sunday Story…What? Me Worry?

The Dalai Lama is often quoted as saying: “If a problem is fixable, if a situation is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable, then there is no help in worrying. There is no benefit in worrying whatsoever.”

If there is no solution to the problem there is no problem. You can’t fix it; all you can do is live with it. There is no sense in spending time or money trying to solve the unsolvable. It is unfortunate, it may be difficult, it is certainly regrettable but it really isn’t a problem if it isn’t solvable.

If there is a solution, there is no problem. The solution might be difficult, expensive, or require more of you than you are willing or able to spend (time or money or both). But if it is solvable it is no longer a problem.

Problems exist in your belief system. Reframe your belief. If it’s a challenge, apply the solution. If no solution exists let it go.
