In the same token, we spend countless hours worrying about a future that we also cannot control. Indeed, we must plan and prepare, but as the old song says, “que sera sera”, “what will be will be”. There is a sense in which we can plan and prepare for the future, but we cannot dictate it. For example, we know that our lifestyles will have an impact on our health. So we can exercise daily, we can be intentional about proper nutrition and doing all of the things that we can to ensure we will be healthy later in life. Nevertheless, you still may get cancer. You still may find yourself with some health condition that was beyond your power to change or control. The problem is not planning and preparing, the problem lies in the worrying. We are a nation of unhappy people simply because we cannot let go of the past and we cannot stop worrying about the future.
