Worry about it later


I’ve always been a worrier, even though in the grand scheme of things I don’t have that much to fret about (ain’t that always the way?). I’ve had a charmed life, never suffered too greatly and always managed to overcome the problems that did come my way, but that doesn’t stop me worrying about the ‘what ifs’. So when I decided to ‘make an encouraging banner’ for Learning To Love You More. I didn’t have to think too long and hard on the message I wanted to convey. ‘Worry about it later’ is a motto I made up years ago* and it’s a handy one for those interfering niggles that won’t go away. You tell yourself that now is not the time to worry, arrange an appointment with yourself to ‘worry about it later’ and of-course, by the time later comes round, your mind is usually engaged in some other activity of a non-worrying nature. Well it works for me.

I sent my banner to Nicky Peacock who is putting it in an exhibition at the Co-operative Building in Middlesbrough from 25th July. I can’t make it up to Middlesborough but if you’re in the area, do visit, it will surely be inspiring.

    I am SO with you on the needless worrying. Amazing how much energy it takes up to fret and stew about things we cannot change, which are often things that aren’t all that important anyway! Your banner is marvelous, and its message even more so.

    I love it too! I admire you for actually DOING one of Miranda July’s projects instead of just thinking about doing one. (like me)

    Long live the Clash.

    Awe I love that banner! What a lovely little motto, I will try it! It would have looked ace around our camp at Glastonbury, I tried to find bunting and it never occurred to me to make one (shame on me being an art student). I too worry about every little thing possible, I always try to tell myself worrying is the biggest waste of a feeling ever but we still do it xx
