Every morning I wake up with a smile (except for the first few times I hit my snooze button) and every night I go to bed with a smile. This is regardless of what happens during the hours that I’m awake and independent of what day it is.
Worrying is a complete waste of time. Getting mad is also a big waste of time. I’ve been NOT wasting time for the past 8 years now.
You might argue that worrying and getting mad are natural human tendencies, but they are actually social influences that we’ve grown up with. Things happen all the time. Its the way we respond to them that truly identifies who we are. The more calm you are, the more likely that you will be able to make a rational decision towards anything in your life.
