I will worry less about the future.
I will worry less about failure.
I will worry less about what others are saying about me.
I will worry more about what I am saying about others.
I will drink coffee, tea and water instead of soda.
I will not beat myself up for drinking soda.
I will drink soda.
I will sing in the car.
I will laugh and smile, but only if it is genuine.
