Worrying Your Life Away

worryI  say the tragedy is how you’re gonna spend
the rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
well, it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I won’t worry my life away.
I won’t worry my life away.

Jason Mraz.

Jason is a singer/song writer that a I saw being interviewed on the CBS Sunday Morning Show. It was a quote that caught my attention as I read the Sunday paper and enjoyed my half a pot of coffee.  I am sure  it was the Holy Spirit showing me my reflection in my cup of coffee. I have been a worrier all my life and it has gotten me nowhere. In my pursuit for happiness, I have got to learn to let it go.

Over the past week, I was upset by the lack of interest in my little e-book that I put together about the injustice done to me almost three years ago. I was actually angry that virtually none of my social network world (all 593 of them) even considered buying a copy. (Five friends did purchase – Thank You). I had spent time pulling together court documents, letters, testimonies to include in my little e-book. All I accomplished was dredging to the surface of my life all the anger that I still had over people that caused such an uproar in my life.

I had allowed the events of October 4, 2011 consume every part of my life. I had been letting it control me and the worst part allowed it to steal my joy and happiness. I announce with much fanfare today – “enough is enough”.

Accepting one another and forgiving on another if anyone has a complaint against another. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive

Colossians 3:13

I have always wanted to write about my time as Mayor and the charges that ended it. A project that is still in the works but the focus will not be the negative, but rather the positive. I was hurt by so many people, by those that I called friends and by those I knew were enemies. The Bible says God forgave me of my sins, so who am I to think that I can’t forgive those people.

I am able to all things through Him who strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13

So in the pursuit of my happiness, the first step is to forgive! It seems I have some letters to write.
