figuring whos fault it was, spend a dollar figuring how to make it right. Stay positive.
Was thinking about some stuff recently, and it caused me to recall some advice that my Mom gave me when I was young that I still fall back on today.
What things were you told when you were a youngster that are still an important part of life for you today?
Two things that help me muchly:
1. A mistake is a mistake until you learn from it; then it becomes an experience.
This one has helped me alot when I have found myself kicking my own butt for screwing up. If I have learned from it, and can avoid repeating it, then I can quit stressing over the fact that I made a bad decision initially. (Thanks Mom )
2. The rule of 5 (when stressing about something, especially in deciding to take action or not): Will this be something important in 5 hours? 5 days? 5 weeks? 5 months? 5 years? .... the more answers that are ''Yes,'' the greater the need to act, as opposed to leaving something be. If the majority of answers are ''No,'' then I am likely headed toward taking an action that will only cause more stress.
What little tidbits of wisdom from the past do you have to share?
