    Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

    I have been told, “Don’t Worry about Tomorrow” but what does that really mean? I do not remember a time in my life when I didn’t worry about something.

She thought that she had to have her entire life figured out. There were too many things to focus on accomplishing at one time and it was paralyzing her. This is when the “Ladder Theory” was born. I was sitting on her bed and she was completely distraught because she was so overwhelmed with all of the things that she thought had to be done right now. I wish I could take credit for what I said but honestly, it just flowed out…
