No rocking chairs.

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

I wonder if worrying is learned or if we are set up at birth by some inherent process. Learned I think.

I don't believe my parents were worriers, both were more pragmatic by the time I came along(I was the youngest of four siblings)they knew what worked, what they could change, changed what they could if they wanted to do so and I think accepted the rest.
WOW, sounds like AA.

A lot of that rubbed off on me so the only time I'm anxious is if something is really scary medically and I guess that's only if I'm not sure what's wrong.
If I know, I read till I feel knowledgeable and prepared. I experience a rise in blood pressure every time I go to the MD's office just because it is the MD"s office. Sounds silly, but I track my BP every day at home, so I know. But knowing allows me to accept the nurse telling me what the readings are.

Two surgeries proved being knowledgeable is best.

I probably make a better follower than a leader because I don't worry and so don't consider all possibilities or consequences.

And I guess I'm comfortable with that although I'm also comfortable with leading if I know everything or almost everything.

Enough. I guess I got into that stream of consciousness thing.
Sorry,
Love ya

    I love the title...No Rocking Chairs...They are best saved for ancient relatives or hot summer evenings with a glass of iced tea!

    Hi there friend,hope your day is super. Your mention of rocking chair reminded me of a song by George Jones called; I don't need your rocking chair,I think its a funny song!Omg my mom was a worrier,but she hid it for the most part,but I am a worrier,too! I show it alot and I obsess about the silliest things and then when I realize that I was being silly I have this sigh of relief. I would much rather follow you then myself be the leader,truthfully I would rather follow then lead.I do like some control up to a point. How true time for some walking,now. Thankyou for stopping by my page,I enjoy visits,and visting! Diana on the other end of the country. emoticon

    Hope you have fun on your walk! I agree with Nancy. You're a rock in the storm and who doesn't need lots of those.=) It would be much more fun to follow you than a big worry wart anyway--just as long as I get to check the food you packed before our group starts off on our lastest adventure.=)

    You are a true leader in my book - the best kind - leading by example.
