This mantra has stuck with me for years and I often think about it when my anxiety is bad. It helps remind me that I am the only one in control of how I’m feeling and that (usually) the thing I’m worrying about is never as bad as I imagine!
I think with everything that has happened this year it has been a good reminder that nothing in life is ever certain. Whether it’s a global pandemic, a loss of a loved one or an illness, your life really can change in an instant.
It's so important to cherish every moment, you never know what is around the corner. I never put anything off anymore. If there is something I want to do, I try and make it happen!
What should we show more of in the world? Kindness - always! I value kindness in others and it’s something I always strive to be myself. A simple text to check in on a friend, opening a door for stranger, a smile, it doesn’t cost anything to be polite and nice to people, it could make someone’s day.
