Things That Make Me Nervous

Happy Friday, All!

Here’s to hoping your weeks went well so that we can T.G.I.F.!!! Yes, it seems we have made it through another week and the weekend is upon us! How are you all feeling? Fine and well I hope.

This particular piece is one I wanted to make a little fun; yet, we all know that a certain percentage of anything funny is often very serious. So, this is no different, okay?!

Did you ever wonder what is going to happen to the world economy? I mean, we are in such serious conditions, and every country seems to be having its own economic woes. One of the most common “jokes” is, “Look at what’s happening in Greece?”. Amongst the major “jokes” nowadays is: “Which country owns the most property or land right HERE in the United States of America?” One of the most common answers is: China! Is that funny?!

Now, George Zimmerman wants HIS day in court because it appears that there is evidence that his “911” call that he made after he shot Trayvon Martin was edited by staff at a television station to make it sound like he was racist! Is that funny?! It kind of makes me nervous, in fact. So, a young kid with alleged links to Al Qaeda attempted to “what he thought was” blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in New York City. Anybody laughing yet? Well, Lance Armstrong, who had been an image of athletic excellence is finally accepting the fact that he indeed was “doping” for several years and even encouraged fellow bikers to do it … and we are just officially finding out! Still not funny, is it?! Either I have a strange sense of humor or the world is going out of control, you think?

Okay, here’s my last one in retrospect of the 2nd Presidential Debate that looked like at several points, the incumbent President Obama and Governor Romney were about to square off in the middle of the stage! Did that cross anyone’s mind?! Well, we’ve got Halloween Celebrations next weekend and there will be many many costume parties, some of them into the wee hours of the night and early morning. Am I the only one nervous? Some days, I keep a simple prayer or meditation, perhaps even a mantra or two, on the tip of my tongue just to get me through the following hours or days, even. They are always positive things to thwart off evil thoughts and “spirits”, feelings even, when I am around certain people and hear what they are saying.

So these are just a few of the things that “make me nervous” . . . can you relate to any? Whatever happens, just know that we are all in this together, and, that I wish us … each and every one of us … the BEST!
