I am a natural worrier. I create scenarios in my head about all the things that MIGHT happen in a situation, and I spend a lot of time in my brain thinking about how I’ll react. It’s exhausing sometimes. And probably makes me a “wreck nervous.” But it’s a huge part of my personality.
In spite of all that worry, I seem to have a natural gift for things just working out without a lot of “outside” effort. I don’t know what it is – things just happen, and they fall into place. I really try to do the right thing 95% of the time, and I’m optimistic enough (even with all that worry) to believe that the guys in the white hats will prevail. Sometimes, it seems like that will never happen, but if I stop and take a look back….they do.
I’d like to give up the worry. But what if…the worry is what helps to create the good things? (See, there’s the scenario thing again).
