Friday Sermon

  • Understand that you are responsible for your happiness.
  • With every bit of money you receive, set a portion aside for your future, then feel free to spend the rest.

  • When everyone posts happy status updates, it doesn't mean you're a loser.
  • Learn about the ins and outs of government services--taxes, social security, health care.

  • Keep a bit of pride, but keep your feet on the ground.

  • Be an expert at something.
  • When depressed, welcome it. Talk it through. Then get out as quickly as possible.
  • When you have a problem, think of the solution as an outsider.
  • Exercise prudence, but not too much that it becomes worry.
  • Find sources of humor. The kind of humor that makes you laugh like you were possessed.
  • Start a journal. Daily, weekly, or monthly, doesn't matter.
  • Choose an art form to enjoy and support.
  • Adopt a health regimen and healthy habits.
  • Try recklessness. With responsibility.
  • Experiment. Explore. Scour what's available, to find out where your heart rests. Find out exactly the areas where you want to invest your productive time.
  • Live. Love. Show compassion. Be fearless. Get hurt. Heal wounds. Repeat.
 Happy Weekend!=)
