|Quote of the day|
|“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” – Corrie Ten Boom|
Thought of the day – 8 ways to get rid of worry
|1. Write it down. Acknowledging your worry takes away its obsessive power. So make a list of what’s bugging you.
2. Say a prayer. Ask God for help, patience and the strength to get through your troubles.
3. Do something. Clean out your closet, reorganize a room, write a letter or make a phone call you’ve been putting off. You’ll feel better just getting something done.
4. Read. A book about someone else’s troubles (to take your mind off your own), something uplifting or funny, or even a self-help book for advice.
5. Take a break. For 10-15 minutes, sit with your eyes closed in a quiet spot. Mentally make a list of blessings in your life; good health, plenty of food in the fridge, friends and family, nice weather, anything you can think of.
6. Take a walk. Movement is action. With any luck the exercise will clear your mind and raise your endorphin levels at the same time. Getting out in the sun will lift your spirits too.
7. Let it go. For a day or even just a few hours, do something you enjoy. Try to refresh your mind and see things in a new light. Don’t worry – your problems will still be there when you get back.
8. Ask for help. Ask your spouse, friend, sibling or Internet buddy for ideas on how to get past the obstacles in your life. It’ll remind you that others have gotten through the same problems before and hopefully give you some useful advice.
|Joke of the day|
|Three guys go down to Mexico one night, get drunk and wake up in jail. They find out that they’re to be executed for their crimes but none of them can remember what they have done.
The first one is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if he has any last words. He says, "I am a priest and I believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on behalf of the innocent." They throw the switch and nothing happens; so they figure God must not want this guy to die, and let him go.
The second one is strapped in and gives his last words. "I am an attorney and I believe in the eternal power of Justice to intervene on the part of the innocent." The switch is thrown and again nothing happens.
Figuring the law is on this guy’s side, they let him go. The last one is strapped in and say’s "I’m an electrical engineer, and I’ll tell you right now, you’ll never electrocute anybody if you don’t connect those two wires." God rest his soul.
