If you’re looking for a new mantra…

Why hadn’t I heard this before? This, my friends, is my new mantra. I admit I worry too much, if you know me you know that I do. I sometimes even worry about worrying, which is the ultimate worry and totally pointless when you think about it. It’s really a vicious circle.

This phrase, however, feels like empowerment. Maybe if I tell myself enough times not to worry, it will all be ok. Warrior, not worrier. Think about that.

Worrying just drains our energy supply. People that worry less can ultimately do more because they put that “worrying energy” into good (or better) use. Careful though, not worrying at all can also be fatal. You do need to keep a sense of worry alive to keep yourself alive.

Still, worrying sucks. A warrior fights and in the midst of chaos and fear, a warrior perseveres. Warriors can worry at times, but they are not worriers. Whenever you feel like you’re worrying too much, just repeat this magical phrase to yourself. If you still need something else to get you through just think that worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but it gets you nowhere. I believe Glenn Turner said that, thanks Google.

P.S. I’m proud to say that I edited the quote myself, it’s not rocket science, I know. Still, I find the world of typography fascinating and I’m always happy to play around with Illustrator for no reason. Don’t we all?
