Good Morning Sunshine!
I like to browse Joyce Hiflers book and came across this. I like what she says.
“There are times when it pays to stop being panicky and get back in the boat. The only way we can drown in all that is going on today is to run scared and lose our heads, When we lose control of our thoughts we let people and circumstances stampeded us into making all the wrong turns.____ When we hear something or see anything that disturbs our peace of mind, we can ask ourselves if what appears to be true is really factual and if it affects us to the point of recklessness. Anything that causes us to stop and think before we run off the deep end will be a saving factor and will give us time to get a new perspective.____When we take other people’s word to heart too quickly there is often a misunderstanding. And misunderstandings result in the loss of friendships and peaceful attitudes.____Everyone expresses himself (or herself) differently, as we should expect, but if we have become so thin-skinned about certain things that ire us, we are apt t put our own interpretation on something someone said that is not right at all.____Before we hoist our hostile flag towards anyone, we need to get a clearer meaning, and the only way is to ask. Time often clarifies issues and a discussion frequently erases the whole problem.____Lovers of familiar ways dislike giving up anything that has served them well. Yet, it never fails that when something forces them into change they wonder why they had not thought to do it long ago.
Nicely said! I like food for thought. Do you remember the sayings on the tea bags?
Best wishes! Pejj
