Daily Dose for the Mind

On a piece of paper, write down everything that stresses you out. List everything you ought to do, including minor things— watering plants, replying to e-mails. The stresses are now contained on a piece of paper, away from your mind. So, relax tonight. Tell yourself you will go through the list tomorrow, item by item, starting with the easiest. When you open your eyes the next morning, your mind and body will be ready. I can guarantee that. Don’t give up in the face of criticism. Learn to brush aside what people who don’t know you have to say. Having critics means what you’re doing is getting people’s attention. Have courage, and continue down the path you’re on.

Life teaches us through our mistakes. When you make a mistake, simply ask yourself what you were meant to learn from it. When we accept such lessons with humility and gratitude, we grow that much more. To be happy, it’s not necessary to expend great effort so we get somewhere else.
Instead, relax into the present moment while finding humor in your life. With humor, life becomes light and leisurely. And laughter always brings people to experience openness and joy.”

Humor opens closed hearts. Humor can free us from the grip of our thoughts. When we smile, we feel we can accept things we previously could not. We feel we can forgive those who have wronged us. Humor is an essential part of life.
