Stories Told by My Phone Now & Then

phone

Raise your hand if you can remember a time when your phone couldn’t take pictures.

Do you remember how phones used to be? No picture taking. No text messaging. No internet. No apps. ???

Hard as it is to believe, I lie not. There was a time (way back in the dark ages of my youth) when phones were used strictly to talk on. They couldn’t take pictures or send text messages or access the internet. The only thing you could do on a phone was talk.

Can you even imagine that now? A phone not being able to do all the wonderful things that they can do today?

Well I can….

Worry: A Waste of Your Imagination

worry

Do you ever worry about having a lack of money, or about your health, your weight, aging, your love life, your children, your parents, your siblings, your friends, your job security, your lack of time and/or a hundred zillion other things?

I do! I’ll admit it. I worry about all sorts of things … and I do it fairly frequently because my worries aren’t always just about me. I worry about my loved ones and their situations as well.

There’s always something happening – something changing in my life. There is almost always a situation coming up on the horizon – an event or problem that may or may not occur. It seems I never have a lack of things to worry or be concerned about. And I know I’m no exception. Life changes constantly for all of us. Still I worry. My mind grabs hold of these concerns and start twisting and turning and transforming them around. My imagination begins working triple overtime wondering, “What if this or that happens? Then what? And then what happens after that?” In no time flat, I’ve created and imagined a plethora of terrible scenarios – each scene worse than the one before it.

Recently, my Overactive Worry Imagination (or OWI as I now not-so-fondly call it – pronounced “owee” - like when you’re hurt and have a boo-boo) was brought to my attention. I had recently become aware of a situation that was about to occur and was worried about it. A friend and I were talking. We were discussing our cares and concerns – so I proceeded to tell her mine … and I didn’t hold back. I presented the situation and then rambled on and on about all the scenarios my imagination had concocted. When I finally took a breath, I saw that my friend was staring at me with a grin on her face.

“What?” I asked naively. The situation seemed pretty serious to me. What the heck was she grinning about?

“You,” she said. “You definitely worry too much.”

And that’s what got me thinking!
