"Every day, think as you wake up, "Today I am fortunate to have woken up. I am alive, I have a precious human life. I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others, to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry, or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can." - His Holiness The Dalai Lama
I don't know about you, but I'm printing this out and posting it in my bathroom so I can see it every morning, and hopefully it will stay with me throughout the day.
I needed this about an hour before I saw it, I was stuck on hold with customer service at the bank for about 30 minutes while they tried to fix my problem. I was getting so worked up as each minute ticked by. Grinding my teeth and thinking "what an idiot"! What I really needed to do was breathe and relax. It's not the end of the world, this is not heart surgery, no lives are at stake. It's a credit card processing issue, that will either get resolved, or it won't. Let it go. Breathe....
