Wednesday Wisdom: I’ve Got 99 Problems and 86 of Them Are Completely Made Up…

This quote just made me chuckle. You guys don’t know this about me…but Fab and my mom will tell you, I am one of those people that completely stresses out about every. little. thing. Literally, I am always stressed…I’m kind of a control freak…ya know, I don’t like feeling out of control of any aspect of my life, and when I feel like I’m not in control, the anxiety sets in and I start stressin…

I’m also a workaholic, which inevitably leads to stress. I have this irrational fear of being broke. My family didn’t have a lot of money when I was growing up…we weren’t poor, but there wasn’t a lot of disposable income. So, I started working when I was in 16, and never looked back. I’m addicted to the sense of control and independence that comes with working. I don’t think I’ve been without a job for more than a week in 16 years. In the back of my mind, I guess I just feel like if I just keep on working as hard as I possibly can, I’ll always be okay. On the one hand, I have incredible work ethic…and that’s a good thing…but the downside is I just don’t know how to turn it off. There is always a looming fear that if I take a break, something will fall through…and I’ll be broke. Lol! See, I told you…it’s kind of irrational.

This quote was a humorous reminder that half the things I’m always stressin’ about are totally made up in my head. So ladies, today’s bit of wisdom is plain and simple…don’t stress…
