life becomes troublesome and worries crowd our day, let those heartaches blow away.
Once we have started seeing the beauty of life, ugliness
and troubles start
disappearing. If we start looking at life with joy,
sadness starts fading.
We cannot have heaven and hell together,
we can have only one. No matter what happened,
no matter what looms ahead, if we can eat today,
the sunlight, mix good cheer with friends, let's enjoy
it and thank God for what we have and whom we have; trust Him for what we need.
great Gautama Buddha once said that the secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past,
worry about the future, nor anticipate troubles but to live in the
present moment wisely and earnestly. It is our choice. Here are some of
words of wisdom inspired by
the writings of an unknown author.
As the story goes, a
lecturer, when explaining stress management to
an audience, raised a glass of milk and asked, "How
heavy is this glass of milk? " Answers
called out ranged from 8oz. to 20oz.
The lecturer replied, "The absolute weight
doesn't matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it. If I
hold it for a minute, that's not a problem. If I
hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my
right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have
to call an ambulance. In
each case, it's the same weight, but the longer
I hold it, the heavier it becomes."
He continued, "And that's the way it is
with stress management. If we carry our burdens
all the time, sooner or later, as the burden
becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to
"As with the glass of milk, you have to
put it down for a while and rest before holding
it again. When we are refreshed, we can carry on
with the burden."
"So, before you return home tonight, put
the burden of work down. Don't carry it home. You
can pick it up tomorrow. Whatever burdens you're
carrying now, let them down for a moment if you
"Relax; pick them up later after you've
rested. Life is short. Enjoy it!" And
then he shared some ways of dealing with the
burdens of life:
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.
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.
If you lend someone $20 and never see that
person again, it was probably worth it.
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
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.
is coming your way, you are in
the wrong lane.
Birthdays are good for you. The more you have,
the longer you live.
Some mistakes are
too much fun to only make once.
We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are
sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some
have weird names , and all are different colors,
but they all have to live in the same box.
It may be that
your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as
a warning to others.
A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the
scenery on a detour.
is caused by being ‘here’ but wanting to be ‘there. We
all have problems. The way we solve them is what makes us different.

Worry is like a
rocking chair. It will give us something to do, but it won’t get us
anywhere. If we fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries of
tomorrow, we have no today to be thankful for. We
can't change the past, but we can ruin the present by worrying over the
