“Worry never accomplishes anything. When you have a problem, it is best to concentrate on the solution to that problem, not the problem itself.” – Thomas D. Willhite

The other day I had a serious WTF moment.

Sallie Mae had just called and harassed asked me to make a payment, I needed to fill up my gas tank to run some errands (and it’s already over $4.20/gallon here), and the first of the month just seemed so far away. In that moment I wondered if I had made the right choice all those months ago to quit my stable teaching job to pursue my passion. Was writing really worth it?

Yes…it is.

Although I may not have as much disposable income as before, I’m far from struggling (ok, not that far). I have a roof over my head, I’m not missing any meals, and my son has everything he needs. And most importantly, I’m happy.

Although worrying about how we’re going to make it is natural, stressing about the journey to your goals never got you any closer. While it’s ok to have a WTF moment from time to time,  don’t wallow in it. Have your moment, pull yourself together, brainstorm some solutions, and keep pushing toward your goals.

Happy Tuesday!

    Thank you for this. I needed it, as I sat not too long ago worrying about something that is two years off. Thanks for helping me focus Britni :)

    I needed to hear this as well. I found myself worried about where, and how I’ll afford to live next year. Thanks.

  • God says to cast your burdens on Him. In the words of Kim from the ATL Housewives, “Ask, Believe and then Receive”. lol. In other words, even when you don’t see a way, God will make a way, if you ask Him to. :)

      I agree.

    Why worry? It’s natural and some people can’t help but to worry…
