If you can …

Thursday, June 15th, 2017

If you can, always be cheerful.

If you can, resist complaining.

If you can, accept that your loved ones cannot always give you their time.

If you can, take criticism and blame without resentment.

If you can, conquer tension without medical help.

If you can, relax without alcohol.

If you can, sleep without the aid of drugs.

 

If you can do all of the above, then you are probably the family dog. But just in case you are not, make the family dog your role model. Inner peace and happiness will be yours. Guaranteed.

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

Worrying does not take away tomorrow’s troubles. It only takes away today’s peace.
