Just take it one day at a time

Are you the type of person that is always worrying about what will come or will happen tomorrow? don’t worry you are not alone! A time in my life, I experienced this and I know that a lot of people out there are dealing with the same situation. Maybe some of you already heard about this phrase and is very common to our elders or to someone who is there to lift up our mood. I heard this phrase from my husband one time, when I keep worrying and asking about the what ifs for the days that aren’t yet to come. This happened when he needs to go far and live there for months for his noble job. I keep telling him that please just work near us, please tell them that you have a family and you cannot live a distance life with us. He said as much as I like the idea of not going far, I also need to fullfil my duties. Then I keep talking and telling him about the ifs, what if I can’t do this, what if I need some help? What if…and what if… He told me this phrase “Just take it one day at a time”. Then I realized that, yes we have to deal each day just one day at a time. The people around us also need to fullfil a different life duties. They also need to explore, to develop and they also have a personal life. I know that it’s really selfish to tell him not to go far. Thankfully I was able to absorb and think of this “one day at a time”, I was able to appreciate each day and be worthy of it. When you’re able to understand this thought you will be able to free yourself with a lot of what ifs. Here are some ways you can avoid those worries and live a happy life every day.
