pic     So I spent the entire day yesterday and a sleepless night last night in a complete panic. It could have been about any of a million different things. In this case it was about some health insurance paperwork that didn’t make it from my old home in Texas to my new home in New Hampshire, but this panic, this gut-wrenching worry, has repeated itself innumerable times over the years.  

Not once in one of these “things” has it not worked out somehow, or resolved itself in some way, or just been deemed unimportant and forgotten about, or in fact did turn out to be a disaster but then a new solution presented itself.

I mean, I’ve made it this far - I’m 63 - and I’m just fine. Considering, you know.  

I was on the phone with a close friend and I said to her, “We’ve always landed on our feet,” and she didn’t respond. So I added, “Kind of,” and we both laughed ourselves silly.

So after wasting my life yesterday in a frenzy and doing nightmares all last night, I called the insurance company this morning and they had found the problem and fixed it.

I’m asking myself: Why don’t I wait to worry until there’s actually something to worry about? It doesn’t make sense to focus my life-energy into yet-unresolved stuff.  

When my son was little I told him just that, and because he was a child, he believed me. To this day, he worries only when there’s a situation, not before. And he nullifies his worry by taking action when it’s needed. I taught him that. I’m amazed.  

I need to take my own advice.
