P.S. You’re not going to die. Here’s the white-hot truth: if you go bankrupt, you’ll still be okay. If you lose the gig, the lover, the house, you’ll still be okay. If you sing off-key, get beat by the competition, have your heart shattered, get fired…it’s not going to kill you. Ask anyone who’s been through it. Daneille LaPorte
If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience. Deepak Chopra
I promise you nothing is as chaotic as it seems. Nothing is worth your health. Nothing is worth poisoning yourself into stress, anxiety, and fear. Steve Maraboli
Anxiety’s like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it doesn’t get you very far. Jodi Picoult
Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go. Hermann Hesse
Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it. Hans Selye
Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained. Arthur Somers Roche
Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries. Astrid Alauda
My need to solve the problem is the problem. Unknown
Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future. Deepak Chopra
Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over. Guy Finley

Don’t try to steer the river. Deepak Chopra
Stress is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there.’ Eckhart Tolle
Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength. Corrie ten Boom
Nothing is permanent in this wicked world—not even our troubles. Charlie Chaplin
Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace. Joan Borysenko
Anxiety is one little tree in your forest. Step back and look at the whole forest. Unknown

Abundance is a process of letting go; that which is empty can receive. Bryant H. McGill
People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. Thich Nhat Hanh
If you gathered up all the fearful thoughts that exist in the mind of the average person, looked at them objectively, and tried to decide just how much good they provided that person, you would see that not some but all fearful thoughts are useless. They do no good. Zero. They interfere with dreams, hopes, desire and progress. Richard Carlson
You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings. Pearl S. Buck
As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does: It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps wiring the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself honey. This is hardcore science. Dr. Christiane Northrop
Stress is the trash of modern life — we all generate it but if you don’t dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life. Terri Guillemets
Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, So what. That’s one of my favorite things to say. So what. Andy Warhol
We must be willing to let go of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. Joseph Campbell
Said the river to the seeker, “Does one really have to fret about enlightenment? No matter which way I turn, I’m homeward bound.” Anthoney De Mello

You forgive yourself for every failure because you are trying to do the right thing. God knows that and you know it. Nobody else may know it. Maya Angelou
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. Kurt Vonnegut
You can only lose what you cling to. Buddha
