Don't worry 'bout a thing


What if...
              I put all the energy I use worrying if other people like what I'm doing into being who I am?

What if...
              I use all the time spent worrying about my kids future into playing with them instead?

What if...
              Instead of being concerned whether anyone really loves me I use that time learning things that I      love about myself?

What if...
              Rather than putting my attention on what I don't have I focused on the amazing world around me and the beautiful people who surround me?

And all that energy that I waste hunching my shoulders up, tensing my forehead, holding onto my worries in the pit of my stomach...

What if I took a deep breath and then just let go?

Ah ... you're right! Lol ... It's totally been "that kind of day" around here. Just put the kids in for bed, took a hot shower and read your post. I'm breathing out & releasing the tension in my shoulders :) Time to redirect the energy ...

Enjoy your relaxingtime Erin :)

I had 'one of those days' too yesterday. Hopefully today I can remember what's important and leave the rest behind a bit.
