Do not turn a pebble into a bolder.

"How do you find out if you are an optimist or pessimist? Ask yourself the question: How do I think when bad things happen to me? A pessimist lets the bad thing contaminate everything in their life: home, work, relationships.  An optimist, on the other hand, isolates the bad. "It's just this one piece that's not so good, everything else is OK." Lou Tice
For me, I have to work on staying an optimist.
It is so easy to let things control your thoughts.
Then they take over your life.
I have come a long way in letting go of this habit.
You just need to stop, when a negative thing happens. Then think. I can handle any thing. This is temporary. It will go away. Ask your self " Can I fix this? Is this my problem or dose it belong to some else." Do not take on the baggage of others. Even if they are your own kids.

Remember do not turn a pebble into a bolder.
Some thing small sure can hurt. 
But a bolder can kill.  
Every new day is another chance to change your life.


  1. Wonderful message...we are all guilty of that, one time or another.

  2. Good points. We have to stop dwelling on the bad things in life.

  3. Very true, my life has evolved to be more happy than sad, more optimistic than pessimistic. But its not optimism heavy, maybe 52% on the optimism side and I work on not letting it tip in the other direction.
