Do Not Worry, Be Happy

Categories Emotions, Human Nature, Religion

God tells us in Matthew 6:25-34,
“Do not worry about
what you will eat or drink;
Do not worry about
what you will wear.
Can any one of you by worrying
add a single hour to your life?”

Therefore, take a step back;
interrogate yourself,
and decide that you’ll stop worrying
and start living.

And in order to start living once more
decide that you will not hate
because someone broke your heart;
decide that you’ll not bother
about things you cannot control;
decide that you will not hang on
to painful memories;

Decide that you will stop taking life for granted;
that you will live for yourself;
that you will follow your dreams;
that you will inspire and make
another person’s day; and
that you will live for something.

Decide that you will live
with the hope that one day,
when you are old,
you will look back with no regrets.

I am an epic introvert, who quickly becomes an open book when I pen what’s in my significantly fertile mind; fertile as a result of bombardment by realities that are continuously captured by my inquisitive eyes, ears which are constantly rubbing the ground, through constant reading, and through dreaming too.

Writing provides an opportunity to ‘say’ what my unapologetic quiet mouth will not say; which not only soothes me, but also bequeaths to me a relief, a release, and a hope that the written words will change the world, even if only one person at a time.

And so should you seek, that’s where to find me; deeply tucked inside the blankets of reading, seeing, listening, dreaming, and then writing.
