William James Quote of the Week

Quote #2

“If you believe that feeling bad
or worrying long enough will change
a past or future event,
then you are residing on another
planet with a different reality system.”

Do you like how William looks today. I thought he might enjoy a more colorful reality system.

I love this quote--I seem to like to live in the future and I often regret things I've said in the past. Hopefully I can just live in the present.

I also use it often with my kids because I have a couple of great worryers.

It also makes me think that William James was a secret fan of science fiction and he too may believe in the existence of a parallel universe. Justifying my view that the world has gone awry!

P.S. Warning!! I am going to be relentlessly upbeat until winter is over.
