Worry List


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When people around me start to emphasize the negative, especially about things they can do nothing about, I'll stop the cycle by saying "I'll put that on my list of things to worry about." It helps put whatever it is into perspective, and lets me focus on whatever is more important to me.

Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.

    and if you have a sister like mine... it will get under her skin that i am taking her 'crap' and dealing with it, while she continues to wallow. i know this sounds NOT positive, but I really have to use Lots of reverse psychology on her. and she's 4 yrs older than me! emoticon
