How Can We Get The Wisdom To Move Beyond Worry?
Our thoughts might look like a string of what – ifs.
What if this or that goes wrong? Sometimes we think if we worry enough we can prevent a catastrophe event. While worry may be a hint that there is something you need to take care of, prolonged worry makes you spin your wheels. It just fuels your fears and you wind up missing precious moments of today.
Perhaps, the best thing you can do is to show up and do your best. Sit down and put your worries on a blank sheet of paper. Ask yourself what is the worst that could happen – what do I want to achieve – what advice would I give another with this worry? Why not try to re-think your thoughts? Thoughts can feed our anxious feelings. We can challenge or change our thoughts from a pessimistic to a calm and positive state of mind. Worry is simply a way not to make decisions or take action.

Mary Ann grew up in Brownwood, a small central Texas town. Her early love of the violin, which developed at the age of ten, and subsequent mastery of the instrument opened many opportunities for her. She was mentored and prepared for her musical journey from the director of the Abilene Philharmonic Orchestra. She auditioned and was selected to join the Blue Jeans Symphony Orchestra. The orchestra was underwritten by Levi Straus Blue Jean Manufacturer and the City of Estes Park, Colorado. Two musical students from each state were selected and concerts were given each Sunday afternoon in a natural amphitheater in the Rocky Mountains. Mary Ann remains an alumnus of this group which is an active symphony now making their home in Breckenridge, Colorado. Mary Ann also played in the Las Vegas, Wichita Falls and Austin Symphony Orchestras.
She had a busy career beginning at the Governor’s Office in Colorado. Then fourteen years at a Texas Trade Association. She was Manager of a Computer Magazine Publishing Company. The last few years of working were spent in sales, which led to her home office, as her husband’s health declined.
Since her husband’s death, Mary Ann has written several books, including a Book of Poetry, Children’s Short Stories, Reflections, The Pioneers and her just published book, Journey of My Heart, A Memoir.
During the last quarter of 2012 Mary Ann was engaged with speaking engagements and book signings in several states, as well as radio interviews from New York City, Dallas, Denver, Portland and Seattle, Washington.
