When it comes to relaxing after a hard day of work, you might take a little coffee or tea, or probably a few rounds of beer or any other booze you could get your hands on. For me, I like to take some tea first, then turn on my music, close my eyes and lied down on the sofa relax for while, you know what, often time it leads me into a short nap, but afterward I feel really fresh and good, ha.
But what’s really interesting to know is that how do other people go through the usual part of life when faced with vein-popping stress? I mean, the new age thing like Zen or yoga or meditation is one of the good things to do, many practioners said it actually works and works well for them.
However, is there room for the intellectual side of people who can actually smell the roses-in-a-can while on the move? It kind of had me thinking that there really must be something in this ‘mind-over-matter’ thing.
Humor is indeed the best medicine there is whenever you are. I mean anyone can pay good money to listen to a comedian just to make you wet your pants after laughing so hard. Despite of what’s been happening, I think to those who has gone though the ordeal, it’s better to just laugh while facing the troubles with a clear mind than anger with a clouded vision.
For some people, reading is another way to help them release the tension and stress.
Speaking of that, one of the celebrities’s work I like is Woody Allen, an American screenwriter, film director, actor, comedian, writer, musician, and playwright. He gives you the on-your-face bluntness that he pulls out with gusto, even without even trying. You can talk just about anything with a man, and he’s bound to mock the subject and you’ll end up laughing rather than being upset about it.
Woody Allen has following to say, which I found them very interesting and in a way meaningful, so share with you in this post:
1. “Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.” It sounds true, in the practicality, all things does involve money, but it doesn’t have to take an arm and a leg to get it, and if it is not for financial reasons, money does not play that important role in a person’s inner spiritual growth.
2. “I believe there is something out there watching us. Unfortunately, it’s the government.”
3. “There are worse things in life than death. Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman?”
4. “Love is the answer, but while you’re waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty interesting questions.”
5. “A fast word about oral contraception. I asked a girl to go to bed with me, she said ‘no’.” It sounds ‘practical’, I think. When it comes to everyday life, he really knows how to make the best out of every possible scenario, and it doesn’t involve a lawsuit if he strikes a nerve.
6. “Basically my wife was immature. I’d be at home in the bath and she’d come in and sink my boats.”
7. “I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.” If it rains, it pours.
8. “I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.”
9. “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.”
Despite of what may happens to all of us in the next five, ten, twenty, or even thirty years, I think we all have to see things in a different kind of light and not just from perspective point of view. I can’t imagine what a life will be if it is without any piece of wisdom in which could guide us. It doesn’t matter whether we’re religious or not, the things matters the most is it takes more courage to accept your own fears and to learn how to deal with them, even it just about getting along with others.
And to sum things up, here is the last nugget of wisdom to goes by, however, whenever, and wherever you maybe.
The talent for being happy is appreciating and liking what you have, accepting who you are, instead of what you don’t have, and want to be somebody else.
