Day Zero Project Item #23:
50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind 

Every Friday (you know, if I remember), I’ll post my answer to one of the 50 questions.

10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?

Worry. Anxiety. They plague my mind constantly. I worry about a lot of things. I worry about every thing.

I am worried about whether I am doing things right (or, correctly). I am worried about whether I am doing the right thing. I am constantly anxious about what I am doing with my life, where it is taking me, and how it is affecting this child of mine.

It’s not just a “mom thing” either. I worried a lot pre-kiddo. I’ve always been a worrier. I’ve always been anxious. I used to take pills for it. I probably should again.

And even I know it’s all just a waste of energy, really.

I really am not going to have a clear answer for this question.

Who is really defining whether the things I am doing are right, or are done right?

Instead of worrying about whether I’m doing the right things, or whether I’m doing them right, I’m just struggling to find acceptance that I am doing the best that I can. In everything I do.

And you know what? That’s totally alright with me.

(I will keep telling myself that. Because one day it will be true.)
