Quote of the Week

3:59 PM |

"If you can solve your problem, then what is the need of worrying? If you cannot solve it, then what is the use of worrying?" - Shantideva

Not sure if you've noticed or not but every week or so I try to post a new quote. These are often words that express how I'm feeling that week or ideas I'm trying to incorporate into my daily existence. This week, I find this quote very appropriate. If you think this quote quote really simplifies the complexities of the human experience, I think you just may need to calm down. Really and truly there are things you can control and things you can't.

If you can, fix it. No need for extra drama leading to ulcers and migraines. Take some time and see how you can improve upon the situation that is bothering you. Now what needs to be understood is that sometimes the fix isn't quick. You may have to work at it or it may take a while to develop. In those instances, understand that you are making daily progress to pull yourself out of whatever irritating situation you find yourself in and that soon all your work will pay off. Remember situations that can be changed are not permanent and realizing that your drama is only temporary can help you work towards eliminating it.

If you can't then what are you worried about it for. I mean sure if you are 5'0" your goal in life is to play in the NBA, chances of getting into a team may be close to slim to none, but should that stop you from even trying? Mugsy will tell you no. Accept those things you cannot change and modify your life/situation to deal with those set in stone factors. These factors should not be treated as limits.

So dust your shoulders off. You have work to do.
