What have I learned in the last four months?
I have learned that tomorrow is going to come, no matter how hard you work to prolong it. I have learned that you can’t possibly prepare for what could happen in one single day and that no matter how helpless or confused or lost or stranded or whatever you feel, it’s still going to happen.
Life is constantly around you and moving on and it doesn’t stop for you because you need to take a breather. It’s tough and it’s rough and it’s crazy and you’ve gotta be proactive because if you don’t accept life, choose life, be life, then it’s going to happen without you and not only will you miss out but you’ll be behind and that’s just not how we’re built as humans.
So whatever it is you’re facing tomorrow: be it a test, a funeral, a birthday, a presentation, a day of nothing, the biggest day of your life, or even just a regular normal one — it’s going to happen.
You can spend your time mentally preparing for tomorrow, but hey didn’t you do that yesterday? Or you can spend your time enjoying today.
The cool thing about tomorrow happening regardless of your readiness of it is this: you will get through it.
Sure your day could be super terrible, but you came out on the other side of it. You’re alive! What more could you ask for?
To sum it all up, what I’ve learned in the past four months is how to let go of anxiety. Sure I slip up from time to time, but for the most part, I know that I’m going to survive tomorrow, regardless of what happens.
Ain’t that just a cool little tiny thing that’s actually really huge and life altering?
