God Told Me To Tell You: Don't Make Everything An Event
If I could have it my way I wouldn't worry about a thing.
But I worry.
I worry about my daughter returning back safely to me every day in one piece.
I worry about my parents growing older and being financially ready to support them.
I worry about my partner and I splitting and ruining our foundation of friendship.
He is my first real best friend.
I worry about not living up to my full potential.
I worry about dying and leaving no legacy -- no footprint.
Not even writing that book I talked about my whole entire life.
I worry about paying my bills on time.
Who am I kidding? I worry about paying my bills. There are so many. Adulting is hard.
I think I got it from my mama.
Then one day a voice said, "Don't make everything an event."
I don't usually hear voices but when I do it's confident and firm yet loving in its approach.
So I listened.
Then I wrote it down.
It seemed important.
It was something I needed to hear that morning.
"Don't make everything an event."
It didn't say much after that but I can fill in the blanks.
Don't make everything an event -- just do what needs to be done.
There is no room left for worry when it's no longer one.
