True story. One morning at the beginning of June I woke up stressed and anxious. All of a sudden calm washed over me when I was hit by a thought. I have a choice of worrying or doing everything I can to take care of the things I can control and let life (or God) take care of the rest. This has been the most productive time of my life, also the happiest.
And people who call themselves nice aren't truly nice, they just act like it for self satisfaction. Ugh it just annoys me when people act so oblivious when clearly they are bragging or asking to get attention. To me the nicest and prettiest people are those who don't self proclaim it and don't seek confirmation from other people. Those things show through on their own.
