I found this quote today – “Worry is like a rocking chair–it gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere.” It wasn’t credited to anyone. But, I liked it. Yet, I still worry sometimes. I am all too aware that it is an inherently worthless activity, but it creeps up on me sometimes. I worry about all kinds of things, mostly things I cannot fix. So how inane is that?! It is, I suppose, only human to worry about people you love, about a business you have invested time and energy into, about a planet whose stress you feel. And I cannot remedy all that is ailing for any of these things. So, I sigh. I sigh lots. I imagine scenarios full of sweet and savvy fixes, some of which I might implement, some of which remain out of my reach. I try to rein in my ruminating and fretting. And this ramble tonight is an attempt to remind myself to do so. Do you need a reminder also? Well, here it is. Care deeply and do what you can. The rest is out of our meager mortal hands.
