Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, but it empties it of its strength.

George Seaton Bowes

Anxiety can be a tricky thing to navigate. Worry and fear can easily become overwhelming, but Reverend George Seaton Bowes’ reminder that the future can’t be changed by worrying about it can be a grounding thought in trying times. Not only does anxiety fail to alleviate future problems, but the constant stress it places on our minds and nervous systems can actually sap us of the strength we need to tackle whatever may be ahead. Although these words were published in 1880, they ring truer than ever in a society where anxiety seems to be at an all-time high. Luckily for all of us, there are also more ways than ever to seek support for our disquietude. Bowes reminds us that preserving our mental and emotional fortitude is necessary for navigating life's uncertainties, and moving forward with clarity and strength.
