I don’t want to worry about the general collapse of life as I know it – governmental, financial, spiritual. I don’t want to be afraid that I have a good chance of getting cancer, heart disease, Alzheimers. I don’t want to worry about being alone in the later years of my life. I don’t want to be anxious over the state of my retirement while I’m still in my 30′s.
I just can’t follow every event, disaster, speculation, trend, statistic, and anticipated source of mayhem. I can’t draw the lines that all conclude vast conspiracies and evidence of the impending apocalypse. If I did, I’d be too afraid to live my life, too hopeless to make plans for the future.
I want to believe that life will be good a year from now, five years from now, twenty years from now. I want to have confidence that my goals, plans and dreams will come to fruition in their time.
I want the condition of the world to stop being so scary.
