The WordPress daily prompt struck a chord with me today. The word was “carefree,” so what first comes to mind when I hear it is the fact that I am not a carefree person at all, even though I wish I was. Some things in life have to be navigated with care, but there are many smaller decisions that do not require as much thought. Because I overreact to things, I tend to give the smaller decisions more time than they deserve.
I wonder if “cautious” is the opposite of carefree, but I think that designation would go to “careless.” It’s good to be cautious, but sometimes, it’s best to throw caution to the wind, grab life by the horns, carpe diem, and any other cheesy saying that motivates you to just go out there and stop worrying so much!
