Every few months, I re-arrange my office. Sometimes that involves moving furniture around, or redoing my bulletin board. Often it involves a Google Image search for inspirational quotes, which I print in color, laminate, and hang on the walls. I try to find words that will inspire the kids – the words I find always inspire me.
I could sit my younger self down and I could tell it lots of things. Having to do it in only two words is a challenge that inspires me.
SAVE MONEY. You’re gay. Hug Dad. Quit drinking.
Those are all awesome. 🙂 However, my answer for today is: stop worrying.
Worrying has added nothing to my life and it’s subtracted a lot of joy. If a Ten-Years-From-Now version of me showed up on my doorstep in five minutes and simply whispered, Stop worrying!, and then ran away – I think that might be enough of a shock to jolt me out of my worrying habit, which gets me NOWHERE and is usually pointless.
