Letting Go

We shouldn't live our lives dwelling on problems of the past, the longer you dwell on them the longer they will last. You need to turn the page in this busy book of life, let go of the mental anguish with all of it's painful strife. Insted of waking each day saying, "oh poor miserable me" You should say "what can I do to make me feel happy" We only live once, so make the most of it while you can, let go of the pain and sorrow,before it gets to far out of hand.

    Also you could say "to make someone happy" but it's fun for anyone making their "me" happy too!! I always try to live your philosophy here, Dan. And I think it pays off!
