Get Going

Science may have found a cure for most evils: but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all – the apathy of human beings.
The wise man does at once what the fool does finally.
A friend who has, until recently always maintained a healthy body weight, said, “Isn’t it strange that we know what to do to feel better and look better and we won’t do it.”  Oh to be wise in doing those things that will help us keep in a physical state so we can enjoy life fully.

Well Done

American women expect to find in their husbands a perfection that English women only hope to find in their butlers.
A man is a person who will pay two dollars for a one-dollar item he wants. A woman will pay one dollar for a two-dollar item she doesn’t want. – William Binger

Accept

The fastest route to joy is acceptance.  Create the reality that gives you joy. Enhance the positive of the moment.    Here are two true-life examples of joy spoilers and joy enhancers.

A father once told his daughter who was complaining about her husband, “Get out of your head.  This, what you and your husband have is marriage.  Not that fantasy you have in your head.”  (She was living her dream and he was working 6 days a week so she could.  She went out and had an affair.)

Two people were members of a small organization.  The one member talked about what fun she had, how helpful the other members were, and how much she learned each week.  The other member had nothing but complaints about the people, the program, and the fact it was a drag to be there. 

Only you can make lemonade out of the lemons life will hand you.

True Today

It is said an eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent a sentence, to be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate in all times and situations. They presented him with the words, ‘And this, too, shall pass away.’ How much it expresses How chastening in the hour of pride How consoling in the depths of affliction  -Abraham Lincoln
