The Meeting is Over

June 10th, 2013 at 06:29 pm

The meeting I dreaded is over, and it was just fine. How much time do I invest in dreading things that turn out not to be bad at all? The truth is, when bad things happen to me, they happen without warning, so why do I even waste my time worrying?

Tomorrow is the golf outing. I've decided to use my cash to get gas and drive. It's just too complicated to meet this responsibility without a car. I've done this event for several years and it's mostly enjoyable. I always get a wonderful free dinner!

I'm really looking forward to doing some financial re-grouping this month. I do have two birthdays coming up, and a vacation in Florida -- but the airfare is already paid, and I hope that buying groceries for my kids will be my major expense once there. I really don't want to do anything but enjoy my granddaughter!

    That is a good point. It's hard as an introvert, because I try to mentally prepare and that means going over worst-case scenarios -- which I then focus on over the best-case ones. But as you said, it's never as bad as I think it will be, and it takes a lot of energy to worry.

    It's something I continue to work on and sometimes succeed, but I've been kind of dreading something today that won't happen until July, so your post is a good reminder to STOP it. Otherwise I'll spend a month worrying when I could be enjoying life, preparing, and feeling optimistic.
