Get over it

Is there some negative experience or situation that keeps weighing you down? Make the choice, in your thinking, to get over it.

That doesn’t mean running away from it, or pretending it never happened or doesn’t exist. All you have to do is disconnect yourself from it.

Yes, when there’s a problem by all means work to solve it. But don’t let it infect everything you are, everything you think, everything you feel.

Letting the negativity become a part of you won’t do anything to make it better. Decide to get yourself back in a positive, creative frame of mind, and then you can make some progress.

A bad day is not a good reason for a bad attitude. Neither is a difficult encounter or a frustrating task or a painful experience.

It’s in your best interest to quickly get over it. Make that choice, and put yourself in position to make things much better.
