Joseph Lovett is a 72-year old filmmaker who produced a documentary about his journey into blindness from glaucoma.
New York Times opinion writer Frank Bruni, also facing potential blindness, wrote about Lovett and his inspiring way to deal with a worry that life changing and overwhelming.
Here is Lovett’s advice:
“…you cannot spend your life preparing for future losses”
It compromises the good that is occurring in the present and discounts the fact that everyone sooner or later is faced with adversity.
When obsessed with worry, become obsessed with the only sure thing you have – life here and now.
