Thought For The Day


If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it.


-- Mary Engelbreit

This has been one of the hardest things for me to learn. I am slowly getting there. Why should I waste my time and energy on things that I cannot change? The only person that I can change is myself. I cannot change anyone else. That is what makes us all different. We should just learn to accept each other for who we are, without trying to change each other. If each of us did this, just think of what a happier world this would be!

I love your thought for the day! I really needed to hear that! Maybe you should do a regular thought for the day or week. Reminds me to be better!

That's been a hard one for me to learn too. I'm getting there though. I have really learned to let go of the things I can do nothing about. I could drive myself crazy worrying about everything or enjoy my life, I choose to enjoy it!

Hi, just popped by from MMB -- great blog, nice thoughts.

I agree, I am the bossiest most controlling person I know -- I hate it when life throws things at me that I can't controll! Which is every trial I have right now... oh, man! I guess the Lord is trying to teach me something....

I love Mary Engelbriet I love how much she likes quotes.

I really enjoyed your feeling on the subject.

I tell myself many times a day "I am enough!"
