You don’t have to figure everything out today. You don’t have to solve your whole life tonight. And you don’t have to tackle everything at once.

You just have to show up and try. You just have to focus on the most immediate thing in front of you. And you have to trust that you’ll figure out the rest along the way.

Another great quote by Dana Arcuri:

 

When life gets hectic and you feel overwhelmed, take a moment to focus on the people and things you are most grateful for. When you have an attitude of gratitude, frustrating troubles will fall by the wayside.
