The Doom-sayers

In four days, my wife and daughter will be travelling to the USA. A unique opportunity for them to go. We had planned originally for all of us to go as a family but financial circumstances didn’t develop as we had hoped. In any event, once we broke the good news to our respective families that they were going, all the doom and gloom started to flow.

What if…..
Oh you shouldn’t go because….
Did you know…..

We are excited over the prospect of the holiday and I thought that our families would also be thrilled for us too. Now I regret telling them anything at all.

If you let the fear that something might happen if you take a certain action govern your choices, then you’ll never ever do anything, and that is no way to live as far as I’m concerned.

They will have a great time in Tennessee and will have a chance to catchup with friends of old, one of which I understand is making the 8 hour drive so they can have some time together.

  1. Oh, they will have such fun:) I’m so happy they can make the trip. Very exciting. You have to live for joy and “what can/could happen,” because ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN…ANYTIME…ANYWHERE. Hope it’s a great big party. Share the photographs when they return:) At least they won’t be snowed in, in Tenn.

    So true! Fear can be used as a justification for any inaction, but it being the guiding force for choices . . . means a whole lot of life missed out on.
