I saw a post that said something to the effect of “Just Write”. Sometimes when I just write I don’t make much sense. I have a tendency to ramble and I end up embarrassing myself. I’ve been trying to come up with a post about being carefree. Maybe I’m looking at it from the wrong direction. I don’t think it’s possible to be carefree. There is always something to worry about or a need that has to be fulfilled. In my dark days I used drugs thinking they would help relieve the pressures of life, but I was wrong, they only increased the pressures. I was always searching for my next high and not being satisfied when I found it.
Carefree in my opinion is being in a state of mind or situation that frees me from the pressures of the world. That state of mind is something that needs to be worked at every day. I don’t think I reach a carefree state of mind very often, there is always something to worry about. As I grow older things that used to cause me to worry are no longer important. I have reached a point where I have less responsibility therefore less worry. I have found some contentment in my life and I wonder if contentment is similar to being carefree.
