Patsy Cline–I’m crazy…worry, why do I let myself worry….
Music holds such power. It can set a mood, it can soothe a soul. It can excite and it can add courage as men march to war.
Funny thing about a song, the whole song may be irrelevant to a situation, but there can still be a connection.
Patsy Cline sings ‘I’m Crazy” as a sad realization that she has loved the wrong person. I don’t share that sense. I feel that I love my soul mate who comforts and creates more enjoyment of life. Yet…her words, “I’m Crazy” come out of my mouth frequently. It can be for any number of reasons. I’m crazy to go to the store in the rain. I’m crazy to start a new career late in life.
Today, I am reminded of the other lyrics in this song. “worry, why do I let myself worry?” There is no help in worry. Worry is a waste of energy. Worry drums up all the unquantified potential troubles that may never have to be addressed.
“Worry is the interest paid by those who borrow trouble.” George Washington
