It’s easy to forget what an amazing gift life really is. Our lives are nothing but a cosmic blink. Even our seemingly all-encompassing world is just tiny blue dot circling an average sized star spiraling around a galaxy of 200-400 billion stars, which itself is just one galaxy among billions more. Yet for one brief moment, we get to experience the wonders of existence, of consciousness.
Smiling is one of the best healthy habits that you can adopt. It’s much more tangible than “positive-thinking” and is therefore easier for your body and mind to remember to do. Simply pick something that you do every day, like brushing your teeth or getting on a bus, and try and smile every single time you do it. Once you’ve made it a habit, you can bring smiling into other domains until it’s become something you naturally do all the time.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares. Henri Nouwen
