    This is a way of not being weighed down by worries. If I said this, it wouldn't mean that I was going to do nothing. It means that I did what I could, and if that wasn't enough.. I'll keep my eyes peeled for opportunities, and I'll get a good night's sleep.

    I always say this. What I mean is, the incentive structure of all the people around me (including me) will eventually lead decision making towards solving whatever problem. It doesn't have to be planned at the moment, someone will make it all happen sooner or later.

    In the UK we use the phrase 'Ahh, it'll be alright'.

    I said this to my mother tonight while talking on the telephone, lol. I used to stress about everything, you name it, i stressed about it, hehe but for the past year my attitude has been a 'Ahh, it'll be alright'. I finish work on Friday and if i don't find employment by Monday, i'm going on the dole. I'm not stressing, i have plans incase i don't find work in terms of courses and voluntary work with Probation. I think sometimes in life, we don't get what we want, we get what we need. It'll all come together.

    Unfortunately my brother (ESTP) lives by the 'Ahh, it'll be alright' to the point of scary. Lives in his overdraft, drinks every night, gets wasted on the weekends but it won't be alright when his liver packs up and he wants mine. Nothing seems to phase him but he fun to be around.

    At a certain point, there are things you simply have no control over, so instead of worrying, sometimes it's better just to accept things as they are, and trust that things will happen as they should. The wisdom comes in knowing when you have no control over the situation.

    Nah that's not the word. There was a thread very similar to this one that used it in it's title and I'm not sure where it's gone.

    Similar in meaning but not necessarily it. It was an adjective.

    "Karmic", maybe? There was a thread on karma a few weeks back...

    Or perhaps "blank faced"?

    (I can do this all day long )

    Ah, non of them. The thread was approximately 2 years old therefore it's doubtful you would have caught it. Hmmmm...

    "It will work itself out."

    This philosophy has limited applications. On some issues, this is a perfectly reasonable state of mind, on others... not so much. It's like the common man's Serenity prayer.

    I can exercise this state of mind when the occasion gives me no other viable option.
