Worry No More, the Secret is Here

By Celebrity & Corporate Artist Derek Russell

Welcome to "Sunday's Shared Secret" #2

Spring is just around the corner and it's time for some change. Change in the way we look at things. Change in our behaviors. Change in the way we live our lives.



thousands of thoughts run through our minds.


we are constantly thinking,

constantly analyzing,

constantly wanting more.

And in this fast-paced world

where information is at our fingertips -

We spend countless hours worrying...


about work & about deadlines,

and about following the rules

and pleasing others.

We worry about making money (& saving money & spending money)

and about fitting in and how others judge us.

We worry about finding our soulmate.

We worry about our looks - are we skinny enough, muscular enough, or have clear skin.

We worry when we turn on the news or listen to the radio -

As it's hard not to be consumed by the onslaught of negativity being broadcasted.

We worry about staying healthy.

We worry about the unknown -

And the scary thoughts of what tomorrow will bring.

But we can change all that -

Are you ready to take back control of your life?

I know this can be extremely hard to do.

Trust me -

I've been there,

And I sometimes find myself back there

When I feel lonesome



But there are ways to fight back

And WIN!

And continue to WIN in the game of life.


It's time to release these limiting beliefs

And breathe in the beauty that surrounds us.

For in the simple exercise of concentrated breathing

We can change worlds,

We can find peace of mind,

We can discover our true selves.

And as we continue to educate ourselves

We will begin to take risks

And find comfort in uncertainty.

For when we take time everyday to appreciate life & all her majesty

We truly feel alive.


Life is about

Rejoicing and celebrating with family.

It's about enjoying the great outdoors

And the sweet aroma of Spring.

It's about taking time for yourself

And experiencing firsthand the power of being present.

Take 5 minutes everyday

To let this power infuse your body

with love,

with light,

and with laughter.

And so we have it - today's advice

: Slow down & roll with the punches - you will be amazed at how being present in your everyday life makes you so incredibly happy :)
