Wikipedia entry: Hakuna matata is a Swahili phrase that can be translated literally as “no worries.” Its meaning is similar to the English phrase “no problem” and is akin to “don’t worry, be happy.”
You know those times when you are overwhelmed with a load of care, responsibilities and obligations? Today is one of those for me. I am at a cross roads right now – a monumental one. I a standing at the edge of a cliff and just ready to take that one step that leads down into the rocks below. The funny thing is that I am so detached from any emotions about the situation. I must say a big “Thank You” to a small support group who are pitching in one way or the other to stand with me through this. You guys rock!
So, what am I going to do? It is still afternoon, and I will grind away at resolving this situation (it is one that has to be resolved today). But once it is dusk, I am heading out for some air and music. Maybe I will dance a bit too. I am certain that regardless of how things turn by this evening, I will keep breathing – and hold on to my peace of mind. The sky isn’t going to fall on my head (remember Asterix and Obelix?). There is nothing to be gained from killing myself with worry or letting stress get the better of me.
