Sometimes lyrics will stick in my head and roll around there for days at a time. It is as if they are my specific mantras for a little while. Recently it has been John Michael Montgomery’s song released in 1992, “Life’s a dance you learn as you go. Don’t worry about what you don’t know.”
Much of the worry that I feel is concerned with things I either don’t know or things that I can’t change. I have heard it said that worry is a waste of time. Knowing both of those things, doesn’t seem to change the fact that I find myself worrying.
Oh, I stay in that worry mindset a much shorter time than I have previously in my life. I catch myself and by repeating some of the statements and lyrics that I have become familiar with, it does help me shift my thinking from what is stressing me out towards more positive and uplifting thoughts.
I love Dori in the animated film, “Finding Nemo.” She keeps telling herself, “Just keep swimming,” when faced with things that are difficult. That is what I want to remember, just keep on moving, keep on dancing. Whatever is happening today will not remain the same. Change is something I can count on.
