the thing is

I like my life right now. As I said to someone the other day, I’m pretty happy, but I can’t afford to be this happy. Now in terms if happy, that’s a sliding scale. With the help of a small yellow pill I would say on a scale of 1 to 10, on a daily basis I’m running a strong 7.1. O.k., I couldn’t use a straight number and I almost said 1 to 11 or 13 to make it more challenging. I’ve always felt a little uninterested in that type of thing. Especially that one, “on a scale of 1-5.” What a cop out. Someone should run a check on how often the 3 is checked. That means nothing. Make a decision! Grow some and check the 2 or the 5 or yeah even the 1. Be honest. Think about it, really? What if we are honest all of the time? People wouldn’t be so shocked when they find out they really aren’t good at something and then the workplace might be a nice place to go to everyday. And if everyone were honest, I’m thinking that the behind the scenes banter would be limited. (well maybe not ~ but I can hope) If you are straight up honest and open with everyone, what is there to talk about? I can hear it now, “I am so not good at this. Can you believe she told me I wasn’t good at that, then asked me to do this … which I love!”

Today the Charter For Compassion was unveiled.

The principle of compassion lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat all others as we wish to be treated ourselves. Compassion impels us to work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of our fellow creatures, to dethrone ourselves from the centre of our world and put another there, and to honour the inviolable sanctity of every single human being, treating everybody, without exception, with absolute justice, equity and respect.
