DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY - Inspiration

Updated on February 21, 2013
Thanks buddy!
Thanks buddy!

Yea....Right!

"You know, I'm about to take my car and run it off a cliff! OK? DO YOU GET IT NOW?!!!!!" I can hear the crickets, I really can. Infact they are singing right now! Silence. I'm waiting for your answer my dear friend. Silence. Oh mercy mercy me, the kind gentlemen is about to speak! Well I just can't wait to hear the wisdom that will spill from his educated mouth. "Look G, don't worry....all will work out ok. All is good." Now before I decide to go further with this hub, I just need a little moment to catch my breath and SCREAMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!! DON'T WORRY?!!!!!! THAT IS ALL YOU HAVE TO SAY?!!!! AFTER ALL THE TIME I HAVE SPENT HELPING YOU WITH YOUR EGO, YOUR PROBLEMS AND EVERYTHING ELSE?!!!!!!!!! REALLY?!!!!! I HAVE NEVER EXPECTED ANYTHING BACK FROM ANYONE MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE, BUT REALLY?!!!!!! OK, I'm done now. Now that you heard my rant I will now explain what this hub is about.

Give and Take....

My point is that most people worry. Yes this is true, but how many people can go to someone and expect them to calm them down or make them feel better? Without having to go and pay someone to help them. I mean real friends or people who really give a damn. Try it once, I dare you. Go to someone who you think is a really close friend and say something REALLY serious. Don't lie to put them in shock. Just express a real emotion without editing your words to suit them. See how they react. I tell you most people will give you one or two lines and will think that is fine. This is what most people have time for.

Well I never give people two lines or calm them down in one sentence. Infact I give them everything I have. I always have been this way. If a friend or loved one needs me, I am always there 100%. All of my knowledge and experiences rolled into one there for them to take in. I'm really good at it. I'm a really good listener and the conversation is never about me. Infact I probably could have been a successful psychologist if I pursued helping people full time as a career. I always give my best and I hope that at the end of the conversation the person will feel better and worry less. That makes me feel great joy to know that I helped in some way.

There is a lot of worry out there now. Just look around you and slow down a minute as you really take it in. A lot of people who you know or do not know are having a very hard time and most of the time you would never know it. Why? Well because most people do not say what is really happening and they frost it all when they explain WHY THEY ARE WORRYING!!!!

Ok, let's take a worry that really is no big deal. I'm worried that my writing here has taken a backseat because of other's "worries" including mine.

Trying to juggle raising my kids with a career in entertainment is not easy. Infact I do not have a nanny and I'm on my own most of the time. I hire people to look after my kids when I work on a project or travel quite far away. And when I am far away like on business in Europe, all I do is WORRY ABOUT MY KIDS! It just never ends. Never!!!! Infact the older I get, the more I worry!!!!!

A few of my favorite hubbers have disappeared from hubpages and frankly I AM WORRIED because I care. Someone very close to me has decided not to comment here anymore and wants to keep our exchange "off the world wide web." I understand but I miss their comments. I have been so busy that I have lost a lot of my regular followers and I am worried that I will NEVER be a Level 7 or 8 commenter here on Hubpages!!!! I'm not REALLY worried, it was just something that makes me giggle to myself!!!!! I thought this whole "Level thing" is very entertaining. There must be something wrong with me and NOW I AM WORRIED!!!!!

All kidding aside. If someone close to you or someone you know is hurting. Remember to take the time to listen to them and really take it in. Give them whatever you got and after you see the smile on their face, you will know that you gave them more then most people do.

      Ausseye.....thank you for stopping in....I totally agree with you. If everyone just "paid attention" more and gave friends and loved one's a bit more of their time, I believe that relationships would just get better. Good listeners are hard to come by...Thanks again for being here.....Best, GPAGE

      Here to you G making a difference, listening is a serious skill and it troubles me that I have never beeeeeeen able to master it (some of us are the underdogs all bark no bite). Making a difference is so very desirable, if only more people would listen and make the world a better place.....now you got me going What if.......Einstein has listened to his conscience and not invented the atomic bomb...the world would have been a nicer place for our decendents? Hey what a game this could be!!! Don't worry be happy is a very very important aim to listen to....My take is "Give the world a chance by paying attention and listening to G'riffic thoughts about really caring for others".

      Hello Eiddwen! We were camping in a very nice caravan park 20 minutes from BETWS-Y-COED (where I got to play tourist and eat lots of Welsh Cakes! ha)....Since he grew up there going in the Summers, he showed me just about as much as you can see on a 5 day trip....We drove there from Warwickshire....it was so lovely and I really enjoyed it. WE were also near the slate mines, Conway castle.....got a picture of the smallest house in the world! ha.....I should probably do a hub on this! An American in Wales! I already did one on my adventure living in the UK for a year here.....Anyway, I loved Wales and will be back! G

      I know what you mean about the Welsh Cakes; I have a griddle and often bake mine on that,delicious!!!

      Take care

      Eiddwen.

      You make a very important point in your hub. If we are going to be a friend than we have to be willing to be there, accepting and non-judgmental, to listen, help and just care. This is a very interesting hub.

      Eiddwen....So happy you stopped in! Interesting that you live in Wales. One of my new favorite places!!! I lived in sussex for about a year in 2007. I just went camping in Wales for the first time this year. It was so beautiful and I spent time with someone very special. I wrote a hub on lambs here that may make you laugh! I could not eat them after I saw so many!!!! Anyway, planning on spending more time there in the future....I will never get over Welsh cakes!!!!! ha ha Best, GPAGE

      ALASTAR....."Kind Sir" ; Let this very caring lady thank you for being here! I would have you in my foxhole anytime! Because you care as much as I do. It means a lot to see your comment here since the more I write about "real life," the less comments I get. It seems that this is just human nature. But the reason I started here on hubpages was to "write" and I did not think of it as a social network. Over time, I met a few amazing people. People from all walks of life spilling their ideas and adventures on the virtual page. It seems to me when I write about Hollywood I receive more comments, but those hubs are less and less now. Even though I work in the industry, I no longer have the need to live it every day. So the more intimate and "real" I get, the less interesting I suppose. But there is a lot to say for being "normal" and my soul life is much more important to me now.....I look forward to cottages with white picket fences and gardens full of love. I am thankful that you are here to comment and frankly that is enough for me. I no longer have the time to "keep up appearances here" because of my personal and professional life at the moment. I will keep up the writing though because I LOVE it!!!!!! Thank you for caring dear sir ;.....G

      People who drop everything and focus with their words, help, or advice to a friend in need can seem as rare as a four-leaf clover sometimes. Fortunately, there are those like you G, who do care and take the time. I'll never forget that person who was in such distress that you helped. Yes madam, if this lady is your friend you are in good hands indeed. You would have had a very successful career as a psychologist/counselor. Once again you've gone to the heart of a human inter-personal situation with good insight. And don't you worry so much G, your artistic gifts call, and all will be well.
