    That absolute­ly summed up my atti­tude for the two years after my nasty divorce.

  • Lisa says:

    We can nev­er be remind­ed enough of how impor­tant it is to appre­ci­ate the sim­ple things. We all have such a short time on earth but can spend too much time on things that do not mat­ter. Thanks for the insight and the easy steps for liv­ing a grat­i­fy­ing life.
