I have a bad habit of stressing out over things that don’t matter. I don’t think that it’s “my” bad habit; I think that it’s everyone’s collective bad habit, because we are humans, made of heart and brains and bits of flesh and soft bits and magic and feathers and I kind of tuned out during every science class I’ve ever taken but I think there’s also a lot of water in our bodies too.
It is easy to forget that these are the best moments in our lives. I don’t care how old you are or where you live or where you’re coming from as you read this; this moment, right now, this is part of the time of your life. It may not seem like it. But think about it this way: everything becomes nostalgic. And you will one day yearn for this moment. You will!
It’s easy to get discouraged. BUT it can be just as easy to turn it around. Yes, there’s always going to be somebody out there who is better than you at something, who has a better career, is more attractive, and so on and so forth BUT. But! There are so many people out there who pale in comparison to you! Who wish they could be you or have a fraction of what you have. Make ENVY work for YOU.
OK no but seriously. So many times I’ll be somewhere and I’ll feel anxious or bored or impatient and I’ll take out my iPhone and start pressing buttons in hopes of distracting myself. STOP THAT. PUT DOWN YOUR PHONE. IT’S OKAY TO BE ALONE SOMEWHERE. IT’S OKAY TO WAIT. JUST CALM DOWN. SMILE. MAYBE TALK TO SOMEONE. NOT IF THEY’RE CREEPY. JUST BE A PRESENT HUMAN BEING.
The more you worry about something, the less you’re caring about something real. Don’t give things attention that don’t need attention. If someone is annoying you, do you sit down and say, “Hey, let’s really get into this, please tell me more?” No! You excuse yourself and remove yourself from the situation. Think of your worry as an annoying person. Don’t give annoying people your time.
