This is the way

The Mandalorian is a piece of cinematic brilliance. I should clarify that I’m not being sponsored by Disney to promote their seeming monopoly on the entertainment industry. It’s just a series that draws a lot of things I love together. A Star Wars series, where Taika Waititi is a director, based on an iconic character with amazing concept art. 

“This is the way” is a mantra in the series. I know it’s a little bit lame, but it’s actually been really helpful for me to repeat that line to myself when I know what I have to do and I’m having trouble doing it. 

It helps when I need to give myself a kick of motivation to get out the door, when I need to get out of bed, when I need to pull my head away from overthinking. Just to have a short phrase to go to and remind myself. Remind myself that I am doing all I can to do things worth doing and fight for things that are worth fighting for. 

Sometimes just a few words help to remind us of really important things that slip our mind in the moment. Just do it. Keep calm and carry on. This is the way. Don’t give up. If, like me, you don’t have the time to come up with your own; you can always grab one of these phrases from a popular television series.
