3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
The trouble with having loved ones is that whatever you're going through, you get to feel it too. Your emotions are thus affected not only by your circumstances but by all of theirs! And unlike your own circumstances, you can't make decisions for them! I have learned acceptance in such circumstances - just to be there for them. Experience has taught me that this is the best response.
Heavily distracted again today! I'll be better tomorrow!
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Are you responding in the best way to what you're facing?

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Tracie Walker on sobering up jogging and black men
Pluto is the only known dwarf planet with an atmosphere. It is very thin
and would be toxic for humans to breathe. When Pluto is at its
perihelion (closest to the sun), Pluto’s atmosphere is gas. When Pluto
is at its aphelion (farthest from the sun), its atmosphere freezes and
falls like snow.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Health is not simply the absence of illness. Real health is the will to
overcome every form of adversity and use even the worst of circumstances
as a springboard for new growth and development. Simply put, the
essence of health is the constant renewal and rejuvenation of life.
