Never take yourself too seriously. Og Mandino


Laugh at yourself and at life. Not in the spirit of derision or whining self-pity, but as a remedy, a miracle drug, that will ease your pain, cure your depression, and help you to put in perspective that seemingly terrible defeat and worry with laughter at your predicaments, thus freeing your mind to think clearly toward the solution that is certain to come. Never take yourself too seriously.
- Og Mandino

We don't see things as they are,
we see things as we are.
- Anaïs Nin

We see Life through the fun-house mirrors of our point-of-view.

Beware the rattlesnake of the mind.
- jlh

The world appears menacing, and we recoil in fear. We rattle, and prepare to strike at the nearest person. Our mind has run away from our soul.

Perspective! Perspective is the key both to happiness and to living a productive life. In any disagreement, neither party is ever completely right or completely wrong. Don't let your mind and your fears run away with you. Find perspective. Keep to the middle way. Practice understanding and compassion.

Further reading: Love is saying "I feel differently" instead of "You're wrong."

Try a new perspective on diversity. Across the country and around the world, we are all one. - jlh

Don't believe yourself

Visualize a kinder world
