“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.” William James

Bad news, difficult people, disappointment, are things we all have to deal with.

The tendency is to overreact, blow things out of proportion and end up having a bad day—or maybe even having a bad life.

Richard Carlson, PH.D. has written an excellent book, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff in which he talks about simple ways to keep the little things from taking over your life.

He wrote the book in 1997. I only wish he had written it sooner. I needed it. I’m ashamed of the fact that although I have been a student of the Bible for most of my life, I didn’t always have the attitude of Jesus.

I’m making a plea for simpler living. I want to learn to live in the moment and not be stressed out by the little things of life.
