  1. I like these… For me the problem invariably lies in discerning exactly what is within my control (or at least influence) and what is decidedly beyond it. Sometimes I don’t find that line until I have a go at trying to improve things. It’s always a balance between passivity and action, over & over again.

  2. What a tranquil place to sit and unwind.
    Three great quotes, Tonya! The one about worrying is my downfall. The way I try to think is that I cannot control illness, deaths and accidents. . .
    I like Deepak Chopra and his words resonate with me. I’ll try to let go more.
    I can “Be Happy” and try to deal with life in a positive and uplifting way. 🙂
