Opportunity Killed the Cat

What could possibly go wrong? What may be alright? What if it’s not worth the time? All these questions race through my head, but they are just noise at an unreasonable volume. Okay, that may be an understatement. It burns so bad I don’t know what to do. I don’t know where to look. Which way to turn or even which toothpaste I should buy. My mind is racing, but there is no finish line. Seriously, if I didn’t know better I’d say I’m going crazy. Am I overly stressed? Sure, but it’s not that at all.

There’s an old saying, which says: “Curiosity killed the cat.” I don’t think that’s true anymore. What it should really say in this fast-paced, ever-changing reality is this: “Opportunity killed the cat.” Look at it another way. What should you do today, what is going on tomorrow? It’s easy to say ‘nothing‘, but if you live in a decent city there are hundreds — if not thousands — of things to do at any given time. How do you cope? Do you feel you are missing something? Like right now? Take a step back and think about it just for me.

I guess there are two ways to deal with this. Relax. From your forehead to your toes. Let go. It’s just thoughts creeping up on you for no reason at all. Look at them, register them, but don’t let them get to you. They’ll only end up overbidding yourself, and you will pay the ultimate price. And then there’s time. Go to sleep and think about it again tomorrow. At least that’s what I’m doing most of the time and it seems to do the trick. Good night then.
