Inner peace

  • If you can start the day without caffeine …
  • If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains …
  • If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles …
  • If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it …
  • If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time …
  • If you can take criticism and blame without resentment …
  • If you can conquer tension without medical help …
  • If you can relax without liquor …
  • If you can sleep without the aid of drugs …

… then you are probably the family dog.
