Like Murphy observed, whatever would wrong will always go wrong. It is not that things would go wrong, the most important thing is that you do not go wrong with things. There is a lot of anxiety, hysteria, worry around the world with the COV-ID 19 pandemic but in times like this we all need to say the Serenity Prayer and live by it:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

It is normal in trying times like this to worry for the future but the thing about the future is that it happens anyways,

Here are some of the most inspirational quotes on anxiety and worry:

Rule number one is, don’t sweat the small stuff. Rule number two is, it’s all small stuff.– Robert Eliot

Don’t sweat the small stuff, It’s all small stuff.

Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything.– Mary Hemingway

If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today.– E. Joseph Cossman

Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere– Erma Bombeck

Focus on what you can control.

If you can’t sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It’s the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.– Dale Carnegie

This too shall Pass.

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.― Corrie Ten Boom
