Words of Wisdom

I can’t take the credit for these  (they’re from this random little book called P.S. I Love You that I stumbled across at Salvation Army), but they are post-worthy:

 

No one is guaranteed happiness.

Life just gives each person time and space.

It’s up to us to fill it with joy.

~

People take different roads seeking

fulfillment and happiness.

Just because they’re not on your road

doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.

~

So you wish all the problems at

work would go away.

Maybe you’d better think again.

When problems cease, so do opportunities.

Solving problems was the reason

you were hired.

And it’s been my experience that

jobs with few problems don’t pay very much.

~

Almost all of our unhappiness is the result

of comparing ourselves to others.

~

You wouldn’t be worried

about what people think of you

if you knew how seldom they actually do.

 About that last one – isn’t that so true?  Think about how much time we spend worrying about what other people are thinking about us, and how focused we are on our own imperfections.  Now think about how much time you, personally, spend looking for and dwelling on imperfections in other people – a lot less than you spend on your own, right?  So maybe we should realize that everyone else is as focused on their own problems as we are on ours, and they are spending a lot less time judging us or even noticing our issues than we think!  It doesn’t logically follow that just because I think about myself all the time, everyone else must spend all their time thinking about me, too!
