I’m a worrier. It’s been a part of me ever since I was a little girl. What if the restaurant doesn’t have cheeseburgers? What if the kids in school don’t like me? What if I don’t get this job or ace this test? What if that guy I like doesn’t feel the same way about me? What if the dentist/doctor causes me pain? What if I don’t sell another book?
Life is filled with ifs and I believe the key to living a great life is not worrying about what might happen.
It’s a daily struggle for me to push down the worry and enjoy life. Whenever a worry pops into my head, I combat it with five positive thoughts and/or gratitude statements. They include:
I’m living my dream life.
I have all my basic needs taken care of and am truly blessed.
If they don’t have cheeseburgers, maybe I’ll get a chicken sandwich.
Pain is my friend and luckily, it’s only temporary.
There’s no need to worry so let’s quit worrying and just enjoy what happens! I’m going to embody the quote above and celebrate the journey!
Who’s with me??
