I thought I would share with you a quote from Walt Disney: "Why worry? If you've done the very best you can, worrying won't make it any better."
This resonates two fold. One, you should always strive to put your best work out there and to not slack on projects. You never know who is watching or where it might lead you. The second reminder is about not worrying, which is so much easier said than done. And while I am not trying to quit worrying altogether and float through life on a cloud of unicorns and fairy dust, I am trying to be content in the knowledge that I have done my best and that is all I can do.
Worrying will only add premature wrinkles and frown lines. And while I would love nothing more to actually look my age, I certainly do not want to look older than my 21 years.
Another way to easy the worry and anxiety that flares up all too often, is to focus that negative energy onto something positive. November is here and with that comes a season of thankfulness and generosity. Instead of stressing yourself out with worry, focus on all that you have to be thankful for and show appreciation for those special people in your life. Do a random act of kindness. Treat a friend to lunch or write them a note of encouragement. Not only will it will help refocus your energy and take your mind off of the things you cannot change, but it will also brighten someone else's day.
