Last week, we talked all about the 10 things it’s OK to obsess over, so this week, I thought it would be fun to discuss the little things in life that we can stop worrying about already. These minor things somehow got on our Must-Worry List (you have one of those lists, right? Please tell me I’m not the only one…), and more often than not, these worries tend to get lodged in our brains and get stuck there. So we worry and obsess. Worry and obsess.
What would people think? Am I the only one who does this? What does this say about me?
Those are the types of questions that keep swirling around in my head. I’m sure you’ve got your own set of questions, friends, but guess what?? It’s time TO STOP! Here are 5 things you can stop worrying about TODAY…
To believe wholeheartedly that one or two (or three…) peppermint patties in the morning is for medicinal purposes: Hey, it’s dark chocolate. Science has proven dark chocolate is good for you.
To sometimes watch The CW more than CNN: Because after a long week, sometimes you’d just rather watch the adventures of hot vampire brothers (helllooo, Stefan and Damon…) than the misadventures of Washington’s elite.
To prefer to spend time with your cats on the weekend: Let’s face it, they’re the only animals on the planet who love you unconditionally and actually appreciate your quirks.
To perfect your Oscar acceptance speech in the mirror: Hey, a girl’s got to be prepared for these things! You don’t want to be reduced to a blubbering mess someday, do you?
To spend the afternoon sprinting through the park and going down the huge slide, multiple times: You don’t remember the last time you smiled so much or laughed until your stomach hurt. Best. Day. Ever.
What’s on the top of your Don’t Worry List? Has the list changed over the years? Any other advice, friends? xoxo
