Did I ever tell you guys I was a major drama queen?
No kidding, I stress over everything – my schedule, my day, my work, my food. I think part of it might stem from me being a perfectionist and wanting to get erveything done just right and not leave anything undone.
Not that this is a bad thing in itself, but the truth is stressing so much about everything takes away a lot of your time. Not only that, but it rarely helps to better the situation and it sure does make you a whole lot more misserable and uptight.
Starting my weekend study program this weekend and I am officially freaking out. I’m applying for a grant to help cover payments – and trying to complete and file all the paper work has my stomach in knots. Not only that, but this year there was a mix up with one of my required classes which, if unresolved , might lead me to fail the semester regardless of my grades.
I love studying – running to and from classes, learning about things I am passionate about. What I don’t love – all the stress that comes with it. Quite frankly constantly freaking out about every little thing is sucking all the joy out of my life :(.
So what am I going to do all about this? I’m going to try to stop being such a control freak and start learning to focus on living and ENJOYING the moment more and not worrying what tomorrow will bring.
One thing that sometimes helps is when I think to myself – what is the worst thing that can happen? This helps me put things in perspective and realize that even if I do mess something up, it’s not the end of the world.
This quote is waay too true.Worrying is such a waste of time.
And this is another good one.
Sometimes the best things are totally unplanned – like my thrown together dinner today.
What you do when you come home starving and have no time to overthink dinner – olive oil sauteed potatoes, zucchini and red beans – topped with ketchup and a blob of mustard. The result – one word. Scrummilicious!
Guess spur of the moment isn’t always so bad after all 😉
Do you tend to worry a lot? Any tips on how to stop?
