Why Worry

- 40% will never happen, for anxiety is the result of a tired mind,
- 30% concerns old decisions which cannot be altered,
- 12% centers in criticism, mostly untrue, made by people who feel inferior,
- 10% is related to my health which worsens while I worry, and only
- 8% is "legitimate," showing that life does have real problems which may be met head-on when I have eliminated senseless worries.

Only one "humor"?

It reminds me of when I had asked Mom if I was adopted....
she took my little face (really. I USED to be little0 and said to me, "No...no... But, don't worry about that. We only put the ad in the paper last week.

When I was in college I told my grandma (who was generally very loving) that I wanted to ask this girl out but was worried she'd say no. My grandma asked me, "What are you, a pussy?" I asked the girl out the next day.

I love the stories you post.
