I’m worrying far too much. About people, about money, about health, about the world. Sometimes it hurts to even turn the TV on. After turning off the news I sit staring at the black screen for several minutes, just taking in deep lungfuls of air. The pictures are enough to terrify even the most hardened of people.
Perhaps I should just stop watching altogether. All I want to do is curl up under my blankets and close my eyes because tomorrow can only be worse. But who am I to make that judgement? I have no idea what is around the corner, so for now I will put on my running shoes and get out into the rain. I’ll feel the wind on my face and I’ll feel truly alive. Because the weight of the world is heavy and I can’t possibly take it on all by myself. For now I will just take it one day at a time and enjoy the fact that I’m OK today.
Repeat that again: I am OK today. I have so much to celebrate and be thankful for. Let the burdens of tomorrow stay where they belong.
