"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 TiceFor 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.
