Today Jamie Ridler asked the question ‘What do you wish to take a break from?’ My answer is worrying. I am such a worrier – and as a friend so aptly put it today – worrying is a misuse of my imagination, and I certainly do not wish to misuse my imagination.
My most usual worry is over money. Even when one is careful with their money life has a way of throwing curve balls. For example on Sunday we were on our way to meet friends for some skiing in the back country. It was a beautiful sunny day. We were starting up the pass when our trusty & powerful camper van, Samwise, quit accelerating. Hmmm…not good. And immediately my eyes saw dollar signs and I began to worry.
After aborting our ski day – fast forward three days – I have been worrying further. Samwize is in the shop, and the verdict is still out.
I’m hoping for not too many zeros at the end of the bill, but I am giving myself a break from worrying about it! I know that life is full of the unexpected. My word for the year is grace with the unknown – and this is one of those things you just cannot control…a big unexpected, unknown.
This break from worrying is scheduled to continue indefinitely. Wish me luck!
