Caring about anything can be a thrilling and dangerous business.
That shouldn’t stop us. But beware caring about things you can’t control.
Caring about things we can’t control is a bad idea because we will inevitably be disappointed.
They will change and there’s little we can do about it. But just because change is inevitable doesn’t mean we should stop caring.
Care about the things we can change: the things we do and say; the work we produce; the way we treat people; the things we put in our body. The promises we keep.
We can’t care about it all. But we can decide to care about one or two big ones — things that do impact us all — and really care about those.
And caring means actually doing something about it.
It’s act or ignore.
Few of us have the energy or time to do more.
