post the fifty-eighth

It's been a strange last few days. I've had some pretty high highs and some pretty low lows. I can't tell you why I've been so up and down recently (I'd have done something about it if I knew what was up). I just know that I've been all over the place. Normally I'm pretty even-keeled. Not this week. I just recently received some really good advice that set my mind at ease though. I suppose part of the problem is that I've been stressing more than usual about my future. I like things to be really planned out for me. Such has not been the case of late. Someone told me yesterday to remember that all I can control is the present. I can safely leave the future in God's hands.

I found that really comforting. There's really no use in stressing unduly about the future. I still have plans for the future. It would be even less logical for me to ignore the future and not plan for it at all. I have a plan for the future but am taking things one step at a time. I can control the present. That's enough for me.

It's not anything big. I just wanted to share it with you all.

At least your highs and lows were pretty.

Good luck staying with those highs. Have you tried a little help from your friends? To get by with a little help from your friends?

(Uffish is obviously in a lame-joke making mood. She aplogizes.)

I guess there are many people who go through this, and I thought I was the only weird guy to stress out about such stuff.

As they say, just take a "chill-pill" sometimes, but don't get overdosed.

Good luck.
