Hello Mocha Club!
Today’s blog is inspired by a quote I found that has really been on my heart lately.
“If something is wrong, fix it. But train yourself not to worry, worry fixes nothing.” – Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway is one of my favorite authors and this is one of his best quotes, in my opinion.
This quote fits me, and others, so well because when I do something wrong or mess something up, I worry about it for about a week. No, seriously. If you ask any of my friends or family members, they would tell you the same thing. I don’t stop worrying about that mess up until I have it fixed. If I get in an argument with a friend, I dwell on that and only think about how to fix it until it is fixed. I am guilty of putting others before me all. of. the. time. And if I do something to make that person mad, I worry about it. Basically, to sum myself up, I am a worrier. A huge worrier.
After reading the quote a few days ago, it really got me thinking. So what if I make a mistake? I can fix it. So what if I make a D on a test? I will do better on the next one and study harder. Don’t worry about the little things! Life goes on. It is no big deal, and you can fix it. But don’t dwell on it. Because, like Hemingway said, it fixes nothing.
Peace and blessings,
