Monday’s Mantra

It’s easy to get lost in your own thoughts and anxiety. The grad school/work/internship cycle is an exhausting one, not to mention time (and money) consuming. Instead of worrying about the future (Job Market? Income? Living in a cardboard box? ACK!) , I try to focus on, as Edna Mode from The Incredibles calls it, “The Now.” Take care of as much as you can right now, and have confidence that the rest will fall into place. Some great tunes never hurt either.

This is one of my favorite bands, and their lyrics have a tendency to put things in perspective for me. When all else fails, dancing around your living room helps, too- I can vouch for that.
