Right now, your mind is your only problem.
It is chattering like a runaway train.
Just yesterday I was thinking, “How did I get in such a lousy place?”
I should know better. If you really want a problem to go away, here is one thing you can do… Decide to let it go; know it will work out. I was having trouble with an agreement to purchase a house.
We couldn’t agree on one section of our agreement. I was upset.
I chose to think, “I must have it my way.” I then decided I wa
I woke up too late to call my daughter.
She would be at work by now, and she couldn’t take calls.
