I am sure you are. There is a lot to be
worried about these days. And everybody is worried about something sometimes
(not to be confused with Dino’s “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime”… though just
as true). But even the smooth talking, care-free Rat
Pack had their worries. Like when Frank Sinatra Jr. was kidnapped. Imagine
how nerve-racking that would be! Us normal folks have more common things to
First and foremost on everyone’s mind is this fiscal pit we’ve
fallen into. The DOW
continues to drop. Huge
firms are flopping. Banks
are bankrupt. And you are worried about your money, your future, your
children’s future, and your children’s children’s future. Who wouldn’t be?
Then there is the Presidential election. Who are you going
to vote for? Will he
fix our problems? Can he
put an end to our worrying? And then even if he says he can, will he?
And don’t forget about the simpler uncertainties in life. What
to wear tomorrow? What to eat
for dinner? How
will this presentation go? And how far below that red line can the fuel
gage go before you have to fill
up on $4-gas?
So many questions,
so few answers.
"Today is the tomorrow I was so worried about
yesterday." It’s so true, yet, makes absolutely
no sense if you think about it.
What’s all this worrying for? What’s it mean? That you have
to hold off on that 60-inch
plasma to hang on the wall, or that roomy
new black-leather Gucci handbag. That you can’t lay a gas-hogging footslam
on the accelerator when the light turns green. And that you can’t go to SinCity
for a Sammy-Davis-style New Year’s bash.
Now I’m not going to pretend I’m Nietzsche
or anything, but does any of this truly matter? You need to have “the
ability to let that which truly doesn’t matter slide” because “everything
will work out – it always does.”
The truth of the matter is this: there is always plenty to
worry about, always; and worrying never makes anything better – it doesn’t
solve problems and doesn’t make issues go away. So instead of wasting away
worrying about things – especially things that truly do not matter – why not
take a break from your worries, smile and take a deep breath. Because just as
it reads on Sinatra’s tombstone: “The
Best Is Yet To Come.”
