Dealing With Life’s Burdens
Today is just one of those days when I’m reaching back into the archives for one of my favorites.
I don’t know the origin but it’s supposed to be from a lecturer who was talking about stress management. He offered some advice when it came to dealing with the burdens of life which I pass along to you:
- Accept that some days you’re the pigeon and some days you’re the statue.
- Always keep your words soft and sweet…just in case you have to eat them.
- Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.
- Drive carefully. It’s not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
- If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
- It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
- Never buy a car you can’t push.
- Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won’t have a leg to stand on.
- Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.
- Since it’s the early worm that gets eaten by the bird…sleep late.
- The second mouse gets the cheese.
- When everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane.
- Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
- You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
- Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
- A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
- We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull and some have weird names. All are different colors but they have to live in the same box.
