No worries…

One of my son’s has a seemingly favorite saying, it’s ‘No Worries’.  It is a reminder to me that worry is something that we can choose to say ‘No’ to.  Worry revolves around the past and the future, both of which are phantoms in the sense that they have already ceased to exist or are yet to manifest.  Spending time in worry and agitating is a grandiose waste of time.

There are always invitations to enter into these types of activities and conversations.  In fact, one such opportunity dropped in on me today via a phone call.  I could sense the irritation and angst, all over realities which had not yet manifested.  A potentially nasty argument in formation and rapidly escalating into a sure depletion of energy…

Somehow, something inside me said, ‘Stop! – No Worries’.  It takes an intentional effort to clear the mind and choose to be in the one and only place we can ever really be, which is the present.  Blessings to you today for the gift of presence during this time of remembrance and gratitude for the sacrifice for those who have given their life, time and treasure in service to our nation.
Presence
