I love embracing each day with all that I’ve got. I love seeing the good in everything and everyone. I am an eternal optimist.
It’s so easy to get caught up in life. Sometimes it’s good to slow down and maybe even take a step back. I know from experience that couponing can become all too consuming at times and even start to take over way too much precious time. I touched on this in my video yesterday. Just like any hobby, you have to learn to balance it with everything else going on in your life.
Another part of couponing that takes up ones time is focusing on others. You see, when you have a skill (yep – couponing is a skill), it’s easy to critique others… even get frustrated and devote your time to teach them “right”. Well, the problem is that the person (who you are teaching “right”) may not think they’re doing anything wrong. And so then, of course, the conversation can turn into an argument – which, in my opinion, means you are wasting your precious time.
YOU can control what YOU do, how YOU feel, and if YOU want each day to be a great one!
If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
To be upset over what you don’t have is to waste what you do have.
