So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.I'm sure many of you have read this before, but after my mini-fear fest yesterday and Jack Sh*t's gentle response, the above quote suddenly came to mind this morning.
-a quote from FDR's first inaugural address
I got on the @$# scale this morning and found that I had neither gained nor lost over the last few weeks. Yes, the last time I weighed myself (3 weeks ago?), I had gained about a 1/2 kilo or so but since then, nothing's changed. It was the right thing to weigh myself, rather than obsess about the unknown.
I still think that there are many more worthwhile things for me to be concerned with and to talk about, but sometimes you just have to get a load (or a kilo) off your chest.
There, that feels better!
