Day 17

Life can come at us fast, so it’s important for us to take things one day at a day. It’s necessary for us to slow down. Learn to be in the moment. You don’t have to accomplish 500 things in a day to feel accomplished. Learn to feel accomplished by completing three tasks.

Learn to do things as they come to you. Life is almost like laundry, once the washing machine stops, you put the clothes in the dryer. You just have to take life as it comes. There is no need to rush life, or the need to know everything all at once. Life is lived one day at a time for reason. So don’t feel bad if you don’t know what to do next. Give yourself some time to figure what to do next.

I did not always believe in this, about how I should learn to take life slowly, and how I should live one day at a time until a few years ago. And ever since then, I noticed I was able to relax more because I wasn’t stressing out about things months away. I learned that sometimes it’s okay to not know everything at once. Whatever you are meant to know, will come to you when you need to know something. There is no reason to stress.

Today, I will accept that life is meant to be lived one day at a time, so I should only focus on things that are relevant for the day. By focusing my time and energy on today, I will be able to relax more instead of worrying about my tomorrows, and more tomorrows after that.



I have learnt that worrying has no use. It robs you of your energy and your positive thoughts. It serves no useful purpose. It is one of my birthday resolutions that I am striving toward during this year.

Instead whenever a problem rises, don’t fret. Every problem has a solution. You can only find it when you are calm. You can overcome every problem if you view that there ARE solutions.

Today, I will not panic, instead I will remain optimistic about my situation and view all of my options.

Worrying – Eckhart Tolle

“Worrying pretends to be necessary but serves no useful purpose.”

-Eckhart Tolle

This is something that I stumbled upon when I was reading the other night. It is something that I need to work on. I used to worry about a lot of things. But as of lately I have learned to accept what I can change and change what I can’t accept. If I can’t change something, then I don’t fret instead I let go and move on with something that is relevant in my life.

Stop Worrying

I need to work on being less anxious. I understand that I can’t worry about something I have NO control over. I’ve struggled with that a lot. But it’s a work-in-progress. I must let go of everything that doesn’t bring me joy.

The more I worry the less room I have for happiness.

Dentist Appointment

I’ve always been terrified of seeing my dentist. Well, today I had an appointment just a check-up cleaning and I was freaking out on the inside. Despite that one of my resolutions was to not worry, I still worried. I shall work on this.

My dentist told me that I have two cavities. Alas, all of sugary snacks like my s’mores before bed caught up to me and all of my candy and chocolate I’ve had recently…

One of my cavities already got drilled and it was quite painful. And now I have a month to wait for my other cavity.

I remember when my sister and I would get a cavity, well the majority of the time was more than one… But we vowed to ourselves that we would brush and floss and use mouth wash after EVERY MEAL. Well, that was fun for the day that it lasted.

Now I’ve been sitting here in despair. I haven’t even looked at my s’mores or Nutella all night. Time to start eating less sugar before bed.

Off to brush my teeth again!
