I deal with stress in two ways because there are two kinds of stress. There’s stress that you can take care of and there’s stress that you can’t. The first one, I take care of it as fast as possible, because putting it off always makes it worse. Things that I can’t fix? I think about the fact that I can’t fix them. I think about why I can’t fix them and I come to terms with the fact that this is a problem that I’m not going to overcome and that the world is not a wish granting factory. —Hank Green

    So true about not taking care of what you can fix right away. I have unfortunately done this. So what to do with a whole lot of I can fix this? I guess do what you can right away. Then the next batch of right away again and again? I will enjoy reflecting on this and how I can use it. Thank you very much, this will help I think.

    This reminds me of a question I often ask myself: “Should I consider this a problem, or a fact of life?” The day I rejected my mother’s definition of my untied shoelaces as a problem and redefined them as a fact of life is a sweet memory.
