“Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength.”

That quote has honestly changed my outlook 100%.

The last couple of weeks I have been having anxiety attacks every morning at 3:30am. It is a culmination of things. TFA, my school, my second job, my new commitment to a healthy lifestyle, trying to manage a personal/social life…It just all adds up to not very much sleep and a lot of anxiety.

So I complained, for about a week, to whoever would listen. And then tonight I met with my MTLD to discuss my 44 day plan of action to get my kiddos to Interested and Hard-Working…And I complained…and stressed…and worried…

She helped me determine a plan of action and what that would mean for my kiddos. She gave me ideas to relieve some stress. She listened…she listened a lot and it was nice.

I got home feeling a little refreshed and ready to tackle some work and then I ran over this quote…it just hit home so hard. It made me realize how important it is to focus on each individual day….and celebrate the successess in each individual day. There is always something to celebrate, even if it is just getting out of bed in the morning…at least you did it.

So I am facing tomorrow with a renewed sense of “I Can Do It” and I plan on celebrating my successes and pushing myself to stop worrying so much and let the strength of each day shine.
