Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Oct 26, 2012, 07:31 PM

Everyone is feeling the stress of these last few days...I am, too. [View all]

Here's what I do to help myself calm down. I remind myself that there are basically two kinds of things in our world: things we control; and things we have no control over.

Worrying about the things we have no control over is useless spinning of our wheels. It only makes us crazier than we were...

And the things we have control over? Get out there and work on those.

Lose the rest.

My two cents........


Peace out.
