Life is like a sh** sandwich, some days you take bigger bites than others.---SGM T.L. Gunter
It's really pessimistic but when you are having one of those days it makes you laugh
It's harder to wake up every day and find something to be happy about than it is to wake up every day and find something to be sad about.--- My wife (this mentality has helped me through some really tough times)
When I was clinically depressed, I got this piece of advice from a counselor. Perhaps the only useful thing I got from counseling... but it was good. "I know you don't feel like getting up and going to work. But you gotta." So I did.
The best advice I have ever been given was given to me by my Mom, Fmaily, and my current boss. Manners as simple as please and thank you go along way. As a child i was taught these at the table and if i was given anything. we all know the rules to this its just applying them to everyday things.
My boss has given me the most insight on this. If you ever want an employee to do something for you and not slack off use your manners. As time went on i have realized that it apply to every situation in the work place. For example: "hey Jo would you mind getting that for me?" as nice as this would you mind sounds 1up this sentence with a please and a thanks: "hey Jo would you mind getting that for me please? Thanks" and thank them when they actually get the item you requested. Since then I have taken over my bosses position and he went to higher management but, Because of his kind words and advice I have headed my team works incredibly well together.
So give it a try yourself in the work place or at home you will be happy you did.
In the martial art of ninjutsu we start and end every class with the say "Every experience may hold the key to enlightenment" I try to approach my whole day with this idea. Even the most boring part of you day could have something to teach you!
Can't say it's as much advice as it is just a thought to mull for a while.
My friend's dad came to me as he was leaving my wedding. We talked briefly, and he told me that he wanted to make a toast to my wife and I but didn't get a chance to, but he left the thought with me anyways.
"As you go through your marriage, I pray that this day is the day where you love each other the least, and that your love for each other only grows as the days and years pass."
