Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy. – Leo Buscaglia
It’s 7: 09 PM on day 351 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, reply to a few comments of this blog, read The Economics of Friendship. And other social media DOHs by Stan Faryna, feed myself oranges for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – watch TV, tweet about my campaign some more–still no luck although somebody did promise to make a donation so it wasn’t a total loss– feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch some TV and feed myself bread and baked beans for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
This morning I was in the bathroom and as per usual I checked for any changes in my body which is normal for every women I suppose but I take it to the extreme if I notice a change or think that there’s something wrong I automatically assume the worst I remember this one time I thought I found a lump in my breast only it was a bone sticking out LOL I will never live that down my siblings still bring that up every once in a while but I honestly don’t mind because they don’t know what it feels like to be put under anesthetic not knowing if you’re going to wake up again– I had to have surgery done on my back when I was younger due to the fact that I had Scoliosis – in any case while I was in the bathroom checking for changes in my body I realized that waiting for the other shoe to drop wasn’t really living so I’ve decided not to worry so much and trust that I’m doing enough to earn my life. Are your worries of tomorrow robbing you of the joys of today?

Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
