For our tribe of 27,165 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
Feb 7, 2011
What looks like adversity now will only become
the architecture of grand legend later.

We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the fact
that people act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play
the one string we have,
and that is our attitude.

If your day (or week/semester/job/life) is not going well, that just
stinks. And while I unfortunately cannot wave a magic wand to eliminate the
poopy stuff and replace it with roses, I CAN give you a gentle nudge to see
if you can hang in there one more day.
This week’s pebble suggests your current difficulty will eventually be a
trophy on your shelf; something you may not have ENJOYED enduring, but that
you are proud you conquered.
You are, by the way, doing something right. How do I know? Because you
made it to today. RIGHT ON! Take a few deep breaths, go in a closet and
scream for a minute if you need to, and then come out ready to take action
to improve your day/week/semester/job/life.
