I know it seems hard to stop worrying, let go and be happy. You will see people around you living carefree lives with way less than what you have and you probably wonder how. The truth is, it’s all in your head. Your approach to things is what colors your day. You pick the colors. So, if you want to stop having late night thoughts about distant future, take pills for your insomnia, stressing over your day- the real place to start is within you.
