Today, I’ll be accompanying my grandmother to the hospital for some tests. Yesterday, I found out that pain she’s been complaining about is a stomach aneurism, not ulcers like she’s been saying. Also turns out, she knew.
Finding the good: we’re going to attempt making this 79 year-old woman stop smoking. May the force be with us. If we succeed, she will have finally quit and her health will improve. If we don’t succeed, we tried. I’m fortunate enough to be with her now through all of this, no matter what happens.
TONIGHTÃ¢â‚¬â„¢S TOPICS: Join us on the discussion of Ã¢â‚¬Å“DeathÃ¢â‚¬Â. What do you think happens when a person dies? Is that it? Or is there more?
“There has never been nothing that came from something.”
– Robert Thurman, Indo-Tibetan scholar at Columbia University
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.”
– Steve Jobs
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I believe nothing to be true if it cannot be proved. If you believe something,
then you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need proof of it, and if you have proof, you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need to believe it.Ã¢â‚¬Â
– Maria Spiropulu, physicist at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, Geneva
There is a stark difference the attitudes and language of losers and winners. Losers defined as those who consistently do not get what they want out of life and winners as those who do consistently get what they want out of life.
“Positive continuous action is the best antidote to worry.”
