This quote written by Mary Oliver was sent to me by my sister. It makes a great introduction to enhancing our lives.
I worried a lot. Will the garden grow? Will the rivers flow in the right direction? Will the earth turn as it was taught? If not, how will I correct it. Was I right? Was I wrong? Can I be forgiven? Can I do better? Will I ever be able to sing? The sparrows do it. Is my eyesight fading? Or, am I imagining it. Am I going to get rheumatism, demetia or lockjaw?
Finally, I see that worrying came to nothing. And I gave up. Then, I took my old body outside in the morning and sang.
