Tonic for Panic

19 Dec

There was a time I couldn’t ever just relax. It was just impossible.  And then I learned the trick.  And since then, I have done nothing but relax.

Why did I have to learn to relax?

People who knew me knew that I panicked easy.  They who knew me knew too well that I could panic for insubstantial reasons.  I began to relax once I realised that I did panic for silly reasons…  Panicking for insubstantial reasons is frowned upon… Panicking for insubstantial reasons often leads you to make more mistakes… Panicking for insubstantial reasons clouds your brains and mind… Panicking for insubstantial reasons blocks you from seeing the bigger picture… Panicking for insubstantial reasons makes you jumpy and pushes you to jump into sillier conclusions… Panicking for insubstantial reasons lets you believe in all insubstantial substances… Panicking for insubstantial reasons gives people around you not believe in your reasons to panic.  Hence, I had to learn to relax.

How did I learn to relax? Here’s my tonic for panic:

  1. Past has passed.
  2. THIS TOO SHALL PASS.
  3. Que Sera Sera 

If I worried about “what-ifs” of my past, I told myself “Past’s passed.”

When I found worrying over my present predicament, I told myself “THIS TOO SHALL PASS.”

And for all my worries of the future, I chanted Que Sera Sera….

    “Panicking for insubstantial reasons often leads you to make more mistakes”. This is the main reason I had to learn to stop the drama!
