“Remember that half the things we worry about never happen, and the other half are going to happen anyway.” -Kemmons Wilson, Founder of Holiday Inn
These words have stayed with me since I happened upon them in a lobby of a Holiday Inn, while travelling for business. There are plenty of things to waste time on with worry. Most of those things are out of our control. Instead, this week, I have a challenge for myself. Instead of worry, I am going to use that time to recognize the beautiful, yet small and often unnoticed things that are constantly around us. For me, those words have served as a reminder to embrace success and failure as equally important, that nothing is perfect, nor is it necessary to be. I am always happiest and at my best when I take the time I reserve for worry and spend it on giving.
