According to Merriam-Webster a Mantra is “a mystical formula of invocation or incantation”.
I think I use the word more loosely …. I’m sure not invoking anything (unless some crazy spirit wants to bring me boxed wine and make me a corn dog) … it’s just one of my reminders to live in the present, be better every day, not be a bitch and to let things go.
It’s tough sometimes.
When I catch myself worrying about things that might not ever happen or that worrying about won’t change at all … I use this one.
It reminds me that I’m wasting the right now moment worrying about things that are just what if moments. I can only control my reactions and my thoughts RIGHT NOW and what if might never happen.
