I would say I’m a bit more anxious than your average person. The weirdest, smallest things can send me into utter panic. Add that to my mild OCD and you can quickly see why I’m in need of a calming personal mantra.
This mantra is what I tell myself when I’m stressed, anxious, or just need that extra push to try something and not be scared. This phrase brings me back down to earth and reminds me that I can do anything I set my mind to.
It’s going to sounds a bit weird when I tell you what it is. It came to me randomly in a movie theater, watching a movie I swore to the boyfriend I had NO interest in seeing and that he owed me BIG time for going with him to.
Little did I know I would find such an oddly comforting mantra in Star Wars Rogue One :) Yes… a Star Wars movie.
You ready for my personal mantra?
I’m one with the force, the force is with me.
I told you it was nerdy! But it seriously works. This is the phrase a blind character mutters to himself when he is nervous, scared, or needs an extra push to do something brave (like run through the middle of a battle ground). No, I don’t plan on running through any battle grounds, but for some reason this mantra gives me just as much confidence as it gave him. Why question what works, right?
Do you have a personal mantra? Share below! Extra points if it’s dorky like mine.
Also, do I have any closet Star Wars fans out there? :)
