Avoidance

“Part of the

happiness of life

consists not in

fighting battles,

but in avoiding them.

A masterly retreat

is in itself a victory.”

.

~ Norman Vincent Peale

.

Most battles are ego driven, selfish,

self-centered desires which will benefit no one.

Stubborn, bull-headed, mean, lazy or ignorant

do not constitute good reasons to start a crusade.

Compromise, there is usually a better way.

Today, if you feel that you must fight,

pick a cause that will benefit the whole world.

Remember, even Jesus found it necessary

to confront the money changers in the temple.

Happiness is avoiding the battles.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

Avoidance

“The aim

of the wise

is not to

secure pleasure,

but to avoid

pain.”

.

~ Aristotle

.

Sticking one’s foot into one’s mouth is a pain.

Banging one’s head against the wall is a pain.

I’ll show you, I’ll hurt myself is a pain.

Selfish, self-centered, arrogant, grandiose

and egotistical is a pain.

The pleasure does not have to be sought,

it will arrive to fill the void

after the pain has gone away.

Today, be wise, be humble,

avoid the heartaches and be happy.

Happiness is avoiding the pain.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
