    Exactly how I feel like doing sometimes. I wish I can garden but am in a hotel.

    You are wise ChristinS. I do take a break, too. It helps me view things in perspective.

    I love your last sentence. Close that door and open the one that leads to encouragement. Another key statement is if it is important enough for me....what we value do matter. It also helps to have an upbeat personality.

    You are right about your mind sometimes finding a solution or giving you a way to proceed whilst you're asleep. A wise tip.

    That way you become productive. Just routine stuff. Good move.

    Lisa, you are one of those people who are upbeat. My husband is like you. I still have to see him getting discouraged. I am , however, the type that gets discouraged by little setbacks. Thank goodness I have a good share of abilities and resources.

    I am struck by the coincidences you mentioned. I haven't thought of that but I agree.

    You are bringing an angle here I have not thought about, a discouragement of what we've accomplished and a desire to make it even better.
