Happiness is only Skin Deep

How many things can a person juggle in their lives at the same time? Most of us have kids, a house, a significant other, one or more cars, one or more hobbies, a job, and a bunch of payments that support all of this. My thoughts have recently been trained on the fact that I have too much shit to worry about.

On a recent vacation, I was even worried about the consequences of getting eaten by a shark or dying in a fiery crash aboard a jumbo jet.  Who would be around to ensure that the shyster lawyers would not gobble up all of my possessions before making sure that my kids could pay for college and get three squares a day? How would I make sure that the contractors and employees in my company would get paid? The reality is, I’d be dead and wouldn’t really give a rat’s pitooty. Parenthetical question – What is a rat’s pitooty anyways?

I know what you are thinking; if you are worried about having too much to worry about, you should get some help from a professional. I think that eventually, we all get to the point in life where we realize that all of the things that cause us to be anxious are just chains holding us back from true happiness.

I’ll end with a song:

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me
