Studies show that 40% of the anxiety felt by people in the world is focused on things that will never happen.
Apparently 30% is related to the past which we cannot change, 12% to other people’s criticism and 10% to health.
It is a very curious reality that only 8% of the time do we really worry about concerns that need to be faced in the here and now.

Ive had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened
God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time

Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not ye of much more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit unto the measure of his life?
Jesus quoted in Matthew 6: 27
What are you anxious about?
