Some things just are
On theOther hand
Don’t sweat the small stuff; it’s all smallstuff.We’ve all heard it before.Life is stressful. There is so much moregoing on now.I have found the secret to keeping my san-ity. If I truly cannot change the outcome of something, I don’t invest in it.If I have no control over something, whyworry about it?I always used to tease my mom about it.She’d say, “Yeah, but. ...”And I’d tell her, “The yeah-buts aredead.”She was and still is a worrier. I have saidif she doesn’t have anything to worry about,she makes it up. If I truly wanted to know allthe ramification of an action, I’d just sick mymom on it. She would come up with everypossible pitfall and down side.However, on the flip side, some thingsneed worried about. They need time, atten-tion and nurturing for us to get the maximumbenefit.Then there are the things that just are whatthey are.Cameron has at times been upset becausesomeone he was really close to before he wentto prison hasn’t written or made attempts tokeep in touch. I had to tell him that he wasthe one who went away. Life goes on — withor without you.He also went away a time in a person’slife when a lot of changes take place. He was just out of high school and trying to figureout how the real world work, etc. He wasn’ttoo impressed that his less-than-motivatedlifestyle was getting him a little less than hethought he deserved.The things that filled his days and nightsas a high-schooler were lost in the pages of his yearbook.Cameron just hit a hiccup. He had to standat the sidelines and wait for his turn.In five weeks, he will be out on his own.SCARY! (In a Disney falsetto voice.) Butit’s also a wonderful, exhilarating time whenhe gets to really make it on his own. He’llbe making decision that can make or breakhim but at least he gets to make them — andhis mistakes. Hopefully they won’t be toopainful.Cameron deserves a break. He has workedreally hard just to be in a position to make thedecisions — right or wrong.A new challenge Cameron has had to faceis finding the right people to associate with.In the halfway house he doesn’t have a lot of choice. They are, I’m sure, a motley crew.However, he also has the opportunity tomeet new people through work and some of the events his restaurant hosts.It’s easy to want to be around people whofun and not so much to be around people whomake you think, question yourself and wantyou to work toward your goals.I know a lot of people who are much olderthan Cameron and still trying to get it right.He has gained a lot of wisdom and had quitea few “aha” moments.Life can be as difficult as you make it;as complicated as you let it; and everythingyou want it to be if you’re willing to put inthe time.We make our own luck and no onewho forges our path for us is doing us anyfavors.The best advice I have for him is theSerenity Prayer.
God grant me the serenityto accept the things I cannot change;courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.
And the knowledge some things just arewhat they are — with or without you and nomatter what you do.
