“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow. It only saps today of its joy.”

Leo Buscaglia

Imagine worry as a sneaky thief, subtly invading your peace of mind. But it’s a curious sort of thief. It doesn’t target tomorrow’s vault of potential sorrows or uncertainties. Instead, it zeroes in on today, draining the joy from your present moments, leaving you bereft of the happiness you rightfully own.

Realize this: worry doesn’t possess a time machine. It can’t truly touch tomorrow’s emotions. Its power lies in robbing today’s joy, today’s energy, today’s potential.

Don’t let the thief win.

Live in the now, and let tomorrow’s sorrows deal with themselves when they come.
