Don't worry, be happy. Seems like the most over-used saying in the world, and as cliche' as it may sound, it is 100% true. I know for a fact that I have no room to talk because I am probably one of the biggest worry-warts that ever walked the planet, but I am learning to just let life happen and accept whatever is thrown my way.

My dad is actually the person who reminds me more often than not to stop worrying about silly things that I simply have no control over because, realistically, if I can't do anything about it, then why waste my time and energy worrying myself sick over it? Exactly, there is no point.

We were given this one life to live it to the fullest, so what is the point of worrying. Everything will work out the way it is supposed to at the end of the day. We may not like the results, but it is much better than getting worked up over every little thing and overanalyzing every part of our lives. It just isn't healthy and can be both mentally and physically draining after so long.

Now, it is always easier said than done, trust me. I can sit here all day and tell you not to worry about a single thing and it might not mean anything to you, or make a difference. However, if you try to implement the worry-free motto into your daily life, eventually it will make sense and you will notice a change in your entire mindset.

As I said, I am actively working on this as well. Some days are more challenging than others when it comes to keeping a worry-free mindset, which is understandable. No one is perfect, and that's okay. Just try to stay in control of your thoughts as much as possible and stay focused on what is going on in the present. Don't let your mind wander off into that dark place of wondering about the unknown.

Life can be scary at times, but you can't worry your entire life away. Learn how to process all those anxieties and doubts you may have in a positive way and always remember to take time for yourself for some much-needed self-care. You deserve it.
