Impending Doom unsubstantiated

Does freaking out make one a freak?

I read the warning

Of course, it was in red letters

Heaps of snow to come

You’ll surely be buried

And not just that

But blowing snow

You’ll surely be blinded, get turned around, end up in the ditch

Best not to venture onto the roads

Stay home, for God’s sake

I’m admitting

That’s where my mind goes

I read the warning

And then proceeded to get worked up

And the fear kept me from investigating for myself

When I did finally poke my head out

And found the situation far from dire

I felt a little foolish

I hope that I’ll remember this most important lesson

That a forecast is not a fact

A prediction is only one possibility

And peace can be maintained when one pauses

To wait and see

  1. HI, Polly!! I’m right there with you… those weather forecasts are supposed to be accurate, right? And if they say lock your doors, grab twelve blankets, set the candles out, and don’t even think about going outside… well, that’s what we should do, right? 😯 It’s definitely NOT my nature to be patient, pause, and wait… nope. It seems, however, that my entire purpose in this life is to learn how to be patient in every possible way. I AM learning… one lesson at a time. I don’t like it… but I’m learning, and it does seem to bring about a more peaceful existence (when I let it).

    Very happy to hear you’re NOT buried alive in snow! 😀


  2. Isn’t this life – when we worry about things, 80% of the worries don’t materliaze and have wasted precious peace!!
