Stop negative thought patterns with these few words... Click To Tweet

These 4 simple words have saved my sanity a lot over the last few months. After my first divorce in 2008 a friend shared this thought with me. At first I thought it was quite harsh advice, because I was looking for sympathy and a hug. Luckily, reminding myself of this over the years 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.
