Sometime ago, we are talking years here, I started reading the book “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff . . .” By Richard Carlson, Ph.D. It has been an off and on part of my morning coffee time.
The “off and on” part relates to the first quote in the book, (really first, it is found in the introduction) from William James.
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.” -William James
I picked this little book up again after a long sabbatical from morning coffee time and well, my lifestyle, if we want to be honest. The lifestyle I enjoy and makes for the best of me, has more often than not been put on the back burner while I did things that at the time I thought were more important and pressing than my best inner self.
It is just what I needed to remind me of the things that I put aside. Ah, yes, slow down, find the joy in the moment. Picking this little book up again, was the best coffee morning time ever!
