Today is the day I want to change my life
God wants me to be happy
I want to be happy
So why do we worry?


Do you realize how much of your life is wasted on worry?
Causing sickness that was brought on by worries and stress


Think about the fun you could have been having
When you worry you depress family and friends
That causes friction and brings on more worry and stress


So, enough all ready, lets make a life
Tell yourself I will deal with problems as they come
Most problems we worry about never happen
It's never as bad as we expected
We've made it this far; we'll keep on making it 
Except from now on we'll do things differently 


I'm not a perfect size; all women are not a perfect 10
I'm not prince charming; you're not Cinderella


There's no guarantee of happiness
Stop complaining, blaming, judging, and pointing fingers
Stop trying to control, and manipulate everyone, and everything
Overlook shortcomings, and mistakes
Accept everyone as they are
Look at the heart like God does


Try to remember
People don't always do what they say
Learn to forgive

Don't always trust your conscience 
You may have been taught wrong


Laughter is the fuel for our souls
So refuel every chance you get each day

Treat everyone with love, kindness, and respect
It's not a perfect world; Life isn't always fair
Bad things can happen to all of us
Live as best you can, one day at a time
Concentrate on making a life, not on making a living
Above all stop worrying


I can't say all these words come from my thoughts only
I read a lot, and try to remember good advice
I believe these words contain a lot of good advice 
We should all live by
One more thing I believe will help us, is to live like the Nomads do
I no mad at you, you no mad at me
