What’s My Problem?

Life

I’m 30 years old.

It has taken me all 30 of those years to learn the secret of life.

All I need in life is to figure out the difference between what is ‘My Problem’ and what is ‘Not My Problem’


For example

For example…

I’m starting to gain weight.

= My Problem

Solution: More exercise, less food.

For Example…

American Idol is on 3 nights a week instead of better shows.

=Not My Problem
