Time For a Double Dose of Optimism?

Quotes and Notes #312, September 12

Give it your best.

Give it your best.

“Our anxiety does not come from thinking about the future, but from wanting to control it.”—Kahlil Gibran—

Wishing that a result would arrive earlier—or wishing it would arrive later—or wishing that it would never arrive at all—never accomplishes anything.

If something we do will enhance the outcome of a project, then we should do it. If nothing we do will enhance the outcome, than there is absolutely no reason to worry about it, just wait and see.

The best cure for anxiety is a large dose of optimism. Give yourself the necessary injection.
Close your eyes
Breathe Deeply, and tell yourself over and over,
“Everything is going to be all right.”
This will give you a smile which will be fun to share.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

    Kahlil Gibran is one of my favorites. Maybe it’s because my Daddy shared him with me.
