Midweek Mantra

Wednesdays are called 'hump day' for a reason. Monday is firmly behind us, but the hard slog of two more working days remain. Wednesdays are often stressful - projects in full swing, deadlines approaching, lack of sleep, etc, etc. I was reminded today not to let this day-to-day stuff bother me when I stumbled upon the above saying.

In five years, will you remember the report you handed in two days late? Will you remember forgetting your lunch and having to spend £10 on food in Marks & Spencer (I say this like I would regret it)? The gym class you missed? The dress you deleted from your ASOS basket because let's be honest you're overdrawn and that won't help matters?

Chances are you wont. What's going on now that will matter in five years is how you handle yourself, how you impact on those around you,experiences and moments that will change you. Don't sweat the small stuff. Every time you feel aggravated or disappointed, think back to five years ago. I bet loads of stuff went on that at the time literally felt like the end of the world. But look at you still trooping on and living life as if that never happened!

Accept that with a failure, a stressful day or an annoyance, the day will come where it won't matter one little bit.



  1. This is a fantastic quote. We often reflect on things that don't/won't matter in the long run.
