Worry is a Waste

Tuesday, May 2

In the middle of this past pretty carefree weekend, I came to a realization about a specific situation that's been on my mind a bunch lately: I decided I'm just not going to worry about it. What is the point of that, exactly? Worrying doesn't solve a problem. Worry is a waste.

And that simple thought hit me pretty profoundly.

Worry is a waste. It's a waste of my time, energy, and emotions. If you're dealing with a situation that you can actually change- do that. Turn your worries into proactive measures. Problem solved. If it's a situation that's out of your control, that sucks, but there is literally nothing to be gained by worrying about it. Which reminds me of one of my favorite quotes, "If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." - Maya Angelou

So this might be minimally profound but, I figured I'd share it anyway! My mantra as of right now:

Worry is a waste. 

And I hope that helps you too!

Happy MAY! This month I'm ready to: bike to work, plan and host an amazing 60th birthday party for my angel mother, actually accomplish some Spring cleaning (closet, looking at you), get that base tan started for Summer, celebrate the ish out of Katie & Jon at their wedding, renew my car registration, and maybe, finally rebrand this here blog :D Hope your month is off to a fantastic start!
