What Should I Fear.

I used to live in perpetual fear of losing things I have,
or never having things I hoped to acquire.
What if I lose my job?(before I retire)
What if I lose my love ones?
What if I never get the bigger house that I have always dream of?
What if I lose some more weight and unattractive?
And what if I even lose my hair?
What if I never fought hard enough in the operating theatres?
What if I get old and frail and have nothing to offer those around me?

But in my real life experiences,
Life teaches those who are willing to listen ,
and now I know.

If I lose my hair (vanity comes in here)
there are such things call WIGS.....all length and colours.
Isn't that wonderful?
Most of all I will be grateful that my head can still stilmulate ideas,
if not follicles.

A house does not always make a person happy.
The unhappy heart will not find contentment in a bigger house.
The heart that is merry and free, however,
will make any home a happy one.

If I spend more time developing my emotional,
mental and spiritual dimensions,
rather than focusing solely on my physical self,
I will be more attractive with each passing day.

If I cannot work for wages, I will work for the Universe;
the benefits package is unmatched.

If I am too sick to to teach my kids to throw a curve ball,
I will teach them to handle the curves thrown by life,
and this shall serve them better.

And if aging robs my strength, mental alertness and physical stamina,
I will offer those around me the strength of my convictions,
the depth of my love and the spirit of a soul that has been
carefully shaped by hard edges of a long life experiences.

No matter what losses or broken dreams may lie in my destiny,
I will meet each challenge with dignity and resolve.

For the Universe has given me many gifts, and for each one that I may lose,
I will find ten more that I never would have cultivated were the
course of my life to always run smoothly with great strength.

And so, when I can no longer dance, I will sing joyfully;
when I haven't got the strength to sing,
I will then put my CD player into good use,
listen intently and shout with my heart;
and when my bright light approches,
I will pray silently until I cannot pray anymore.

Then it will be time for me to go Home,.
And what then should I FEAR?

*Nothing in life is to be feared. It is to be understood*
