I’ll take faith over fear any day. Yes, one good thing about getting older and wiser is that you reach a certain point in your life where you can just say fuck to fear. You have gone through so much that you just know this is another thing that will pass. You have faith.
Yes it is true. You will get here, you will reach this point and you will fall in love with your fearlessness because you will realize that most of the things you are afraid of are only in your mind and most of the problems you think you have – will magically work themselves out – without our worry or intervention.
And, if you have grown spiritually, you let God do the heavy lifting. You will ask your co-pilot for some assistance during the turbulent times.
Other than that, sit back and relax. Enjoy your life. It’s short.
It’s not to say that you shouldn’t pay attention to your life. Please do.
Like if you have a deep gash that is spouting blood and needs medical attention right now or a flat tire on the highway during rush hour. These problems need immediate attention. The others, I promise, you will survive.
Just watch your life unfold.
98% of the time, the things you were worried about – those problems you think you had – they just disappeared.
Here are the three most common things that happen.
- The person you’re really angry with does exactly what you feared they would do and nobody dies. And nobody cares. And nothing came of it. It came to pass.
- Somebody else takes care of it.
- You realize it wasn’t really a problem in the first place.
There is always something to worry about, isn’t there? It wouldn’t be life without the drama. It seems like one problem fades away and then another just pops up. And we couldn’t of even predicted it.
You know what we should have instead of more problems? We should have more fun.
You know what we should do with the unnecessary self-imposed drama? Ignore it. Just refuse it.
If You Ignore It, It Will Go Away. If you have more fun, you’ll need less drama.
Egon Schiele was an Austrian painter. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity and its raw sexuality, and the many self-portraits the artist produced, including naked self-portraits.
