It’s not a phrase I created or a practice anyone owns exclusive rights too.  It’s an enlightened state of mind available to those willing to take a life changing leap of faith.   For the record, I utilized this phrase long before possessing all of the necessary conceptual requirements.  Spouting it off sporadically to family and friends in the midst of potential turmoil, anxiety and uncertainty. But in all honestly, rarely did I internally codify the advice I pontificated.

The path to 59 Prime clearly revealed so many incredible nuggets of wisdom. The majority of those gifts were not earth-shattering concepts, but the result of minor tweaks to pre-existing dispositions.  I guess there is a lot of truth to the adage: “Sometimes it’s the simple things in life”.

I gradually began to embrace this precious idiom during the darkest days of my 2021 journey.  Deliberately invoking those potent eleven letters and three words, repeatedly as if coercing them into existence.  Each time, rewarded with a more positive, often unexpected and always less stressful outcome.  Each time, gaining more confidence based on the tangible results I witnessed.  Truth is, faith and patience are subtle human attributes, but powerful change catalysts.

So today, I practice what I preach with a conviction now based on empirical evidence.   It is a liberating blessing that requires viewing life through a slightly different lens calibrated by repetition and optimism.  When you truly believe that not all dark clouds on the horizon will reach your shore.  You’ll instinctively “Wait To Worry”.
