Getting Out of My Own Way

One of the greatest life lessons I have learned is that &*^%* happens. There are just so many things you can do to prevent it, and then you just have to have faith that whatever happens, you will be strong enough to deal with it, or at least get out of the way. While I know this to be true in my head, in my heart I firmly believe that if I worry, I can prevent disaster. How super power-y of me, no? So, I’m stewing, and fretting and throwing temper tantrums because I can’t find my keys and if I can’t find my keys, I’m going to lose my job because I can’t leave the apartment and if I lose my job, I’ll have to move because I won’t be able to pay my mortgage. See where I’m going with this? At one point in my life, I was afraid to fly, so my husband and I took a 17 hour train ride from New York to Savannah. It was extremely relaxing. But then I got worried about not having anything to worry about. And that makes me crabby. So now, I’m worried and crabby, and I’m sure that every person I’ve ever met and those I have yet to meet, are probably thinking , “Gee, she’s a crabby worrier. “And meanwhile, life goes on and &*^%* still happens, whether I worry about it or not. I guess I’ll have to have faith that I’ll be strong enough to deal with it, or at the very least, get out of the way.
