I'm trying to remember if I actually read it or I just read ABOUT it. I've read so many books I get confused.

I am content when my huge pup is by my side. She makes me happy, as do my children.

Ah, Coop . . . Maura's just a lovely Irish girl who finds herself accepted into a Buddhist monastery - something that rarely happens to foreigners, much less female foreigners! I think you will like her very much

If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof
overhead and a place to sleep... you are richer than 75% of this world!

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a
dish someplace ... you are among the top 8% of the worlds wealthy.

If your parents are still alive and still married ... you are
very rare, even in the United States and Canada.

If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing in
that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed
than over two billion people in the world that cannot read at all.

Someone once said:
What goes around comes around. Work like you don't need the money. Love
like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching. Sing like
nobody's listening. Live like it's Heaven on Earth.

I know I posted this... And at the time, I felt it was appropriate.

But in the grand scheme of things... if you feel bogged down by the world, why do you want someone telling you that actually - your feelings aren't important because there is someone out there worse off than you.

If you feel stressed at work, and you see your boss and she says "well - we're all stressed!" would it make you feel valued or worthwhile? Like how you feel is important?

We shouldn't disregard how people feel because we know someone who feels worse.

Nope.

Life is far too short to worry about what you don't have. I find my time better spent living for what I do have and enjoying my time here on earth to the best of my ability to enjoy. The only one that can get me into or out of a slump is me.

ACooper - you'd be suprised.

Just because noone here knows who I am, doesn't mean I don't

Oh Dizzy I don't think I would be surprised ONE BIT! I just know that you normally come off as TOUGH........I thought I would remind you that your heart was starting to show so you could get it tucked back away in time!

One look at how you love Bodhi should tell anyone you have a good heart in the right place
