The Light Side of Zen. It might be what you need today, a smile.

Steps to seeing the lighter side of life



1.Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk   beside me, either. Just leave me the hell alone.

2.The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.

3.It’s always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to   do it.

4.Sex is like air. It’s not important unless you aren’t getting any.

5.Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.

6.No one is listening until you make a mistake.

7.Always remember you’re unique. Just like everyone else.

8.Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

9.It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

10.It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.

11.If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

12.Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize   them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

13.If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you.

14.Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat & drink   beer all day.

15.If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

16.Don’t squat with your spurs on.

17.If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.

18.If you drink, don’t park; accidents cause people.

19.Some days you are the bug, some days you are the windshield.

20.Don’t worry, it only seems kinky the first time.

21.Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

22.The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

23.Timing has an awful lot to do with the outcome of a raindance.

24.A closed mouth gathers no foot.

25.Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side & a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

26.There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

27.Generally speaking, you aren’t learning much when >   your mouth is moving.

28.Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.

29.Never miss a good chance to shut up.

30.We are born naked, wet, and hungry. Then things get worse.

I hope you enjoyed them and they put a smile on your face I am not the author of the above list, It was sent to me by email several years ago at a time when I need to put a smile on my face.  There are days we need a little help to us with either Gratitude, Forgiveness, Humour, Love, Courage and the list goes on..

Today I had a talk with a Lady who is a single mother raising her children, I didn’t feel well enough to come into my office an meet with her, I didn’t think I would do her any justice, but as things turned out message was not relayed to her that the meeting was cancelled she turned up, I quickly got to my office and saw her. I am glad I did she had amazing life of highs and lows and through it all made it. It had defined her as a strong human with a compassionate side. I need to hear her story so that I do something for her now.

Our streets are full of heros everyday people doing great things. Mothers, Fathers, Teachers, Police, Fire brigade, Ambulance, and you…

You are a hero. Helping Everyone Respect Others.

Is this what you need to hear today?

All the best to you

  1. Thanks Frank. I was feeling a little flat from my usual energy levels this afternoon and then received the ‘lighter side of zen’…. interesting how a smile changes things.
    It lifted me.
    Thank you. 🙂

    • Thank you Bruce, Smiling does help. Our goal is to think and act better than how we feel, I am talking about emotions, so if you feel a little down and you lift your head up and smile you will release hormones that will change the way you feel.
