A Grandpa’s Thoughts from Contemplating One Day On 10/16/10


Life is simple

You reap what you sow

Only you are in control of your attitude

It is not someone else’s fault

“Stuff” happens

Life may get better – or not

Now is the only time you can actually do anything about it

Regret is wasted energy

Worrying about tomorrow is wasted energy

Thinking ahead about what could go wrong so it can be prevented, is not negative. It is being optimistic about why the future will work out. Pilots and sailors are the best at this skill

Taking action to be happier today will make you happier today and tomorrow

Not worrying about tomorrow and being happier today will make tomorrow better also

We are never always right. Just because we are right today does not mean will be right tomorrow.

Because you are right once does not mean you always be right

If you think you are right. Be bold and believe in yourself

If you are wrong, accept it and change your position with dignity. No one was ever always right or always wrong.
