“I’ve got nothing to do today but smile.” – Paul Simon

Isn’t it easy to get caught up in the challenges of life? Ninety-five percent of our life can be going along great and yet we can so easily focus on the five percent that is disappointing. We can be consumed with stress, worry or simply over thinking our problem to be solved. Meanwhile the minutes, days and weeks are passing on by.

My lesson at these times is always to let it all go. Worry and stress aren’t going to change a thing. When I can stop, look around and remember to see and be grateful for my many, many, many blessings, it puts it all in perspective. Life is sweet!

It’s hard to stay in a stressful place when you are smiling and genuinely grateful. Give it a try.
