I was reading an article on 30 ways to improve yourself. One of them was to find a mantra. The minute I read that tip, I knew what my mantra would be. About a year ago I worked in retail (never again) and one of the only things that kept me going was a phrase I read on a website a long time ago. I had it printed and stuck to the back of my name tag.
“No matter how bad things may get, the music will still be beautiful.”
That’s my mantra. A bit long, but I don’t care. It’s meaningful to me.
