MY NEW YEAR'S
RESOLUTIONS ARE WORKING
I am passing this
on because it definitely worked for me and we all could use more “calm”
in our lives. By following the simple advice I heard on a Dr. Phil show,
I have finally found inner peace...
Dr. Phil proclaimed….“The way to achieve inner peace is to
finish all the 'things' you've started.”
So, I looked around the house to find all the things I’ve started and
haven't finished, and this morning I finished off
a bottle of
bottle of white Zinfandel,
a bottle of Bailey's,
a bottle of Kahlua,
a package of oreos,
the remainder of my Prozac and Valium
the rest of the cheesecake,
and a box of
You have no idea
how GREAT I feel!!!
YOU MAY ALSO
WANT TO START SOME NEW 'THINGS'!
ANON A. MUS
paradox of our time in history is that we
have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower
viewpoints. We spend more, but have less,
we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families,
more conveniences, but less time. We have
more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more
experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend
too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up
too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray
too seldom. We have multiplied our
possessions, but reduced our values. We
talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not
a life. We've added years to life not life
to years. We've been all the way to the
moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new
neighbor. We conquered outer space but not
inner space. We've done larger things, but
not better things. We've cleaned up the
air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered
the atom, but not our prejudice. We write
more, but learn less. We plan more, but
accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but
not to wait. We build more computers to
hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but
we communicate less and less. These
are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days
of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality,
one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from
cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the
showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology
can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to
share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are
not going to be around forever. Remember,
say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because
that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one
next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your
heart and it doesn't cost a cent. Remember,
to say, "I love you" to your partner and
your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will
mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that
person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak,
and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not
measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take
our breath away.
