Are you REALLY worried about 4-hour erections?

SONY DSCI’ve spent most of this morning catching up with stuff I pushed aside during the holidays.

I’m regretting now that one of those pushed-aside items was my pal Warren Bluhm’s wonderful blog.

Shame on me.

That sucker’s always filled with terrific things.

Listen to this…

“It seems that every commercial, every politician, every news story begins with an appeal to our deepest darkest fears. As a society we’re obsessed with the latest disease, the latest threat to our environment, the latest threat to our personal and collective security, the latest threat to our freedom, the latest threat to our very way of life.

“I’ve been writing about confronting and overcoming fear for years, and the threats and rumors of threats just keep on coming.

“You know what? You’re probably not going to die of Ebola. The country is not going to dissolve into chaos because of the election results. You’re probably not going to be killed in a terrorist attack. You’re probably not going to get cancer or poison yourself or have a four-hour erection anytime soon.

“Yes: You could die of Ebola. The country might dissolve into chaos. You might be killed in a terrorist attack. You might get cancer or poison yourself or get a four-hour erection.

“But those things probably won’t happen. In fact, I all but guarantee it.

“At least the odds are so good that you will live through today, and tomorrow, that your best bet is to quit worrying and focus on living. …

“Don’t let them scare you. You’re going to live. Do you hear me? You’re going to live!”

Thanks, pal, I needed that.

Let’s all agree this year to quit fretting and get on positively with our lives.
