Why worry? It's not going to change anything. Live the best life you can and **** the rest of the world.

Worrying is a sin, itís not trusting God to provide and protect you.

Do you do the same shit everyday? Same routines? Don't. Change it up. Go see or do new things.

Last week we drove a 100 miles to a nature preserve. I really don't gaf about a nature preserve but it was something different. Saw some bear, elk, birds, asian's with cameras and alot of nothing.

Tomorrow, I'm going in for surgery. we'll se how that plays out. Something different.

THIS

When you worry, you doubt God.

I quit being a worry wart long ago. Always looked at it like......What's the worst case scenario?
Lose everything? .......BTDT
Get tossed in jail?.......Again?
Have somebody try to kill me?..........Again?

I just decided to quit worrying.
But I still carry everywhere.
Mama didn't raise no fool...... Crazy, for damn sure, but no fool.

I only worry about me not doing a good job controlling what I control. The rest is noise.

Not worry about myself. I worry about my wife, my kids, my new grandson......I worry about dying and not having done enough to care for them all. My grandfather passed away way back in 1968, he was a very good man, worked hard, raised his children, worshipped the lord, etc. a good person. BUT after he died there wasn't enough money to pay the house expenses, my Gmom had to move into a shit apartment.....Then they started talking shit about him....An entire life of good, then boom overnight being bad mouthed.

I can't allow this, I just can't....

I worry....

I worry....

I've done MORE than enough to insure my wife, kids, grandkids, will be ok.
I've informed my children that my wife and I will probably piss away $$$ invested. They will inherit my home and rental houses.
You plannin' on continuing to bust your ass working, worrying about the quality of life THEY'RE gonna have after you croak?
Great.......you'll stroke out/vapor lock relatively young.
Worrying.
Doesn't sound like too much fun to me.
Besides.......You won't worry much after you take a dirt nap.
I ain't gonna tell you what you wanna hear, but what you NEED to hear.

I use to be a bible thumper in my younger years. DAB may know where it is written but your wife comes first. Worry about setting her up after you're gone.

I just spent the last year of estate planning for mine. Your kids and grandkids are not your problem.

I am leaving my son from previous marriage a small insurance policy. He is well off anyway. My wife will inherit 90% of the rest and leave it all to my son when her time comes
