A Few Pearls of Wisdom

February 5, 2016

 

A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything. (An Irish proverb) This is the truth. I'm a nurse, and sometimes my job emotionally wipes me out. Laughing and sleeping are a couple of the most emotionally healing things I can do.

 

How to handle stress like a dog: If you can't eat it or play with it, then pee on it and walk away.

 

An entire sea of water can't sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly the negativity of the world can't put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.

 

You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

 

Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you've ever been, in order to stand taller than you've ever stood. Whatever happens, determine to grow from it.

 

Preppers in the animal kingdom: Go to the ant, you sluggard. Consider her ways and be wise; which having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer and gathers her food in the harvest. Proverbs 6:6-7

 

"He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature." - Socrates

 

God doesn't give us what we can handle. He helps us handle what we have been given.

 

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. - Franklin D. Roosevelt

 

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by each experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do.  Eleanor Roosevelt

 

Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. No one was there.

 

When you are sad, if you force a smile on your face, your mood will lift. Try it. It works. Your brain isn't as smart as you think it is. What you say and do will change how you think.
