These 4 simple words have saved my sanity a lot over the last few months. When I first got divorced in 2008 a friend shared this with me. At first I thought it was quite harsh advice. But over the years it has stopped me from having crooked thought patterns and going into negative overdrive. Last night it saved me when my washing machine almost broke! Being my first load of laundry in my new apartment made it a big deal when the machine suddenly started beeping nonstop and wouldn’t drain. 45 minutes later with the help of my trusty 10-year old’s help we managed to fix the issue. And really – it could have been worse! I have dry floors and clean clothes instead of a broken, leaking machine. Which would have cost an arm & leg to repair too.
