Whenever a situation arises that is creating you pain and angst, it’s because you’re not perceiving it properly. Your perception isn’t large enough to see the bigger picture. It’s so narrow that you’re not seeing the GOOD that can come from the situation. How many times have you encountered someone who had dealt with a serious physical illness but remained positive about it? That’s because their perception is on point.
Now I’m not saying that having a serious illness is a good thing, but those who have to deal with situations like that usually have a better outlook then those who don’t and there’s a reason for it. Remember how I always say there’s a lesson in every single encounter in our lives? Perception = recognizing the lesson! If you can’t find the lesson in it, change your perception. Not only will your soul fill with happiness and peace, situations (no matter what) will always seem to just flow more smoothly from then on out. Trust me on this! Today’s Daily Affirmation is:
"I change my perception to learn my spiritual lessons."

Do you think it’s a question of how much you balance that drive to achieve with being present and enjoying the moment?

You know, it’s funny because I frequently get emails from young people starting out and asking, “How do I make a successful website or start my own thing?” And, very often, it’s tied to some measure of success that’s audience-based or reach-based. “How do you build up to seven million readers a month or two million Facebook fans?” But the work is not how to get that size of an audience or those numbers. That’s just the byproduct of what Lewis Hyde calls “creative labor,” which is really our inner drive. The real work is how not to hang your self-worth, your sense of success and merits, the fullness of your heart, and the stability of your soul on those numbers—on that constant positive reinforcement and external validation. That’s the only real work, and the irony is that the more “successful” you get, by either by your own standards or external standards, the harder it is to decouple all of those inner values from your work. I think we often confuse the doing for the being.

Where my father was tentative and gentle,” Chast writes, “she was critical and uncompromising.” And: “Even though I knew he couldn’t really defend me against my mother’s rages, I sensed that at least he felt some sympathy, and that he liked me as a person, not just because I was his daughter.”

New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast's remarkable, raw, relatable memoir of her parents’ aging, illness, and death is nothing short of a masterpiece.

In admonishing against their usage, Kurt Vonnegut famously called semicolons “transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing," adding that "all they do is show you’ve been to college"; now, The Oatmeal is choosing to ignore Vonnegut’s advice in an illustrated guide to using semicolons.
