Don’t turn bumps into mountains.

Speaking of misfortune, or, I’d rather say ‘bumps in the road’ …

… don’t make your bumps into mountains.

Should you be a little bit hard on yourself for a moment or two if you didn’t capitalize on that opportunity, or perform as well as you could have?

Sure, I’m all about daily, constant, incremental improvement.

And that includes a healthy, honest look backwards before channeling that into positive, forward growth.

But to linger, to drill, to be repetitively hard and negative on yourself; to be unable to accept that you have had a bump in the road and move on …

… after a certain amount, this only exacerbates the problem.

Why punish yourself extra?

Life already provides enough.
