Day 95 of 365: The 10 Things I am Worried About.



Day 95: The 10 things I am worried about. I have been thinking about what our world has become from where it was when I was younger. There is a lot that has been worrying me. I often think about these things because my 4 kids will eventually have children of their own and I worry and fear that their world won’t be a good one. Here is my list of my worries about our current world:

  1. Lack of respect for others, in general and with any difference of opinion.
  2. Lack of one on one, face to face communications, because of cell phones.
  3. Lack of self responsibility.
  4. Lack of open discourse, inability to listen and hear other view points.
  5. Lack of tolerance for different opinions and beliefs.
  6. Lack of work ethic, giving up too easily.
  7. Too much vindictiveness and hatred.
  8. Lack of respect for ALL life.
  9. Lack of kindness, courtesy and manners.
  10. Lack of religion, morality and values.

As I am getting older I am readily seeing changes in this world and almost all of them are NOT good! I don’t even see myself as a negative person but it is hard to stay positive with all these unfortunate trends in our world!

Today I am saddened by the death of Reverend Billy Graham. He was such a positive force in our world! I am happy that he is with God now!

  1. This post saddened me deeply, because it made me realize that I am worried about those things, too. And what is worse, our worry is not unfounded. The changes around us are frightening. Those who are pro-change claim that change will lead to something better and that we are just unable to see and trust in that. I don’t call it pessimism. To me is observation and realism. When I was a kid, my parents were already complaining of how this world was changing for the worse. Now, I do that, too. Is that just a natural pattern? Do we just fear change and don’t want to part with what we were used to? I really don’t think so…
