EXCUSE ME; I’VE GOT TO GO WORRY ABOUT SOMETHING
We do a lot of worrying these days, don’t we? We’ve got so much going on in our lives that we are unable to feel happy or experience some peace without feeling guilty. It has gotten so bad that we sometimes feel there is something wrong with us if we are not worrying.
I am sometimes compelled to believe that people are ashamed to be seen happy and therefore, even when there is nothing to worry about, they make up something to worry about.
“I can’t afford to be all smiles and laughter when everyone around me is worrying about something, I need to worry too.” That’s what we seem to be telling ourselves these days: we feel normal when we get our minds to do some worrying and we feel abnormal when we don’t.
“Well, you know, you won’t understand. You’ll worry too if you had bills to pay, kids to take care of, bad health, this job which doesn’t pay much, these invisible people hating on me, this broken spoon in the kitchen, the TV remote I can’t find, this pimple on my face and the spoiled milk inside the fridge. This is so much for me to bear, I think I’m going to die; oh now I need to worry about that too. When am I going to die?”
Really? How can you put ourselves through all of that and expect the world, your world to get any better?
There will always be something to worry about if you choose to focus on all the wrongs that are happening around you and there will always be something to be happy about if you choose to see all the right happening around you.
Life is easier when we think less of what should be or what should have been. How many times has our excessive worrying solved any of our problems? Some of the things we waste our brains worrying about wouldn’t have been problems at all had we not enlarged it with our microscopic minds.
Today, I’m offering you worries on the left palm, happiness and tranquility on the right palm; make your choice.
I have chosen happiness and tranquility and I am never ever going to make anyone make me feel guilty for making this choice.
