No Parking

on January 20, 2013

– From the Daily Compass:


Who, do you suppose, really wants to park alongside this ramshackle building? And don’t they have larger concerns to worry about? And yet, so many of us expend energy defending ourselves against the remote chance of intruders when

we might more profitably give that time and energy to reinforcing our own structural integrity.

What worry might you give up in order to give that energy to your own health and wholeness?

I have recently applied for a job. I have been worrying and stressing over it. I have decided to give up worrying. Either I will get it or I won’t. If I don’t, it isn’t the end of the world. It just means that there is something else out there meant for me. I tend to worry over EVERYTHNG! I worry that I am not a good mom. I worry over finances. I worry about my husband’s schoolwork. I worry over my cats. I am a worrier. So, when I give up one worry, it is huge. It is still hard though. I still check email constantly, hoping for word of an interview. I take my phone everywhere. Well, I did that before. You never know when I might have an emergency need of Angry Birds or something. Funny, I don’t even play that game…

OK, so I won’t freak out. I won’t check my email and I won’t worry. I won’t check my email…I won’t…. Dang! I checked it anyway. Oh well, I can’t ALWAYS not worry. It is just part of my nature. But I will try. I will try to go without checking email for an hour. Yeah right. Let’s see where that gets me.:)
