There should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now“
Worrying is like a rocking chair; it gives you
something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere..
This rocking chair quote is attributed to many. No matter, it’s a great one.
I love rocking chairs. Have a little thing for them. So calming, peaceful and stills my brain.
Interesting to think of a rocking chair in the context of worry. It reminds me the process of worrying, which I believe to be a close cousin to anxiety, is not productive. Drinking really shifted my anxiety levels into the stratosphere. I don’t miss that level of anxiety one tiny bit.
Here’s a favorite song of mine, most especially this version by the Everly Brothers. In this video the great Chet Atkins is at the helm.
