I worry about not having what it takes to rise to the occasion and meet what is coming in each situation as it arises as I get older and less reliable situation by situation. And I laugh and remind myself of Thich Nhat Hanh's mantra, "Darling, I am here for you, and together we will do our best." (Thich Nhat Hanh's YouTube video interview with Oprah Winfrey is not to be missed) Getting older means fading out, slipping, having lapses, being unable to walk as fast and as far as we did yesterday, and taking that in stride, letting it be because it is, cutting ourselves slack, making allowances, and laughing with love at our daily foibles. Knowing that we will meet things that we cannot manage, but always with the response/reply, "Darling, together we will do the best we can."
