HOW TO LIVE 365 DAYS A YEAR?
This is a funny question. I almost laughed as I thought about it. Ha. Ha. But now I’m joking. Of course you can have more life. Ask anyone who is depressed, who’s ill, or who’s working at job where they come home so exhausted they fall asleep in front of the boob tube. But the question is not whether or not you can have more life, but “How do you get more life?”
How to have more life?
There is an older book, originally published in 1954. The new edition of “HOW TO LIVE 365 DAYS A YEAR,” by John A. Schindler is dedicated to “ . . . the unsung magnificence of ordinary people. . .” It’s all about growing up emotionally and gaining the energy that life holds for grownups. If you’re troubled, or have the feeling that there is more to life than what your living right now, then take note of what is said in this book.
ALWAYS KEEP THIS IN MIND
The Key thought: Carry this idea in every minute of every day. I am going to keep my attitude and thinking calm and cheerful—RIGHT NOW! When the going is good: Tell yourself life is good, and allow yourself the delightful feeling of being happy.
WHEN THE GOING GETS ROUGH
Stay outwardly as cheerful and as pleasant as you possibly can. Lighten an awkward situation with a life of humor, with kindness, or a bit of a smile. Avoid running your misfortune through your mind like a repeating phonograph record. Above all, do not let yourself get irritated, upset, hysterical, or self-pitying.
USE THESE KEYS
Resignation Let’s accept this setback gracefully
Courage I’ll take all this and more
Determination I’ll turn this defeat into victory
Cheerfulness See, I’m coming up.
Pleasantness I still have goodwill toward men.
IMPORTANT AREAS IN LIVING TO WATCH
Keep life simple. Avoid watching for a knock in your motor. Like work. Have a good hobby.
Learn to be satisfied. Like people. Say the cheerful, pleasant thing. Turn the defeats of adversity into victory. Meet your problems with decision. Concentrate on making the present moment an emotional success. Always be planning something. Say “Nuts!” to irritations.
