Everyone has his or her own problems. Some are small and easily taken care of, like a burnt pot or an empty crisper. A good cleaning or a quick run to the store is all that is needed. Other times the problem is a bit more complicated. Such as a homework assignment due the next day that requires research into a subject you know little about. You may have to stay up most of the night to get it done on time but it’s doable if you put your mind into it and think of nothing else, especially sleep. Then there are those giant problems that seem to suck all the energy out of you. Finding yourself locked out of your car or home is a terrible feeling. When you are the only one who has a key to the car or you live alone that problem takes on a whole new dimension as it becomes locksmith time.

We live our lives every day with new and old decisions. What to wear, what to eat and what route to take to work when the traffic gets clogged are just a few of the things we wonder about every day. At times when we’re feeling low we wonder about our health. Some of us go to the doctor to be sure nothing is wrong but most of us put that thought behind us and decide that in a short time of a day or two the pain and discomfort will be gone and we’ll be our own selves again. There’s worry about the economy and our passbooks. Will be have enough to pay the bills? Can we make our next car payment? Do we have enough to by food? Money is always on our minds. We live to get it and we live to spend it or miser it. It all depends on the person. The reality of it all is very simple. There is nothing we can do about most of our worries and problems. They will straighten themselves out in time. So on to the next thing. Living our lives to the fullest that we can.

Why Worry -An Irish Poem, ……author anonymous..

Why Worry?

In life there are only two things to worry about:
Whether you are well, or whether you are sick. Now if you are well, You have nothing to worry about.

And if you are sick, You only have two things to worry about: Whether you get better, or whether you die. If you get better, You have nothing to worry about.

And if you die, You only have two things to worry about: Whether you go to heaven, or whether you go to hell Now if you go to heaven, You have nothing to worry about.

And if you go to hell, You’ll be too busy shaking hands with Your friends, that you won’t have time to worry.

So Why Worry?
