Worry Not – Ch#55 (Just one thing)

Life is too short to worry about failing,

Controlling emotions, may well hold you back,

Leading a ‘normal’ life oft leaves you wailing.

You want to be different? Can’t see the track?

To find ideas, to release, your inner ghost,

Consider the one, whom you envy the most.

Use that picture and, let your spirit, run rife,

Then act, to bring your aspirations to life.

Chapter 55 – Summary from the Wisdom of Alain de Botton

The post has been inspired by If I Could Tell You Just One Thing by Richard Reed.


Over the 62 days, in Dec and Jan, my challenge is to share the learning from each of the 62 chapters; hopefully in a poem, but who knows?  Follow my progress with the #JustOneThing Tag

Happy to explore what you make of the post in the comments below? 🙂
