TO LET GO

Does not mean to stop caring, it means you can’t do it for someone else.
Does not mean to cut yourself off, it is the realization that you can’t do it for someone else.
Does not mean to care for, it means to care about.
Does not mean to fix, it means to be supportive.
Does not mean to change another, it means to make the most of yourself.
Does not mean to deny, it means to accept.
Does not mean to nag or scold, it means to listen.
Does not mean to regret the past, it is to live for the future.
It means that we should admit we are frequently powerless and that someone else’s outcome may not be in our hands.

Golden Rule for Living

If you open it, close it.
If you turn it on, turn it off.
If you unlock it, lock it up.
If you break it, admit it.
If you can’t fix it, call someone who can.
If you borrow it, return it.
If you value it, put it back.
If you make a mess, clean it up.
If you move it, put it back.
If it belongs to someone else, get permission to use it.
If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.
If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.

Charles Schulz Philosophy

The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip. You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you’ll get the point.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winner for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care.

‘Santa sighting’ in Europe?

A ball of light streaking across the night sky in northern Europe on Saturday at a time when many imagined that Father Christmas was doing his rounds was nothing more than Soyuz rocket debris, Belgian experts say.

“The ball observed … above Belgium, The Netherlands, France and Germany was the return of the last stage of the Soyuz rocket launcher,” Belgium’s Royal Observatory said Sunday.
Videos nearly 30 seconds long were posted on the Internet showing the ball of light trailing a long tail, seen at dusk Saturday in southern Belgium, northern France and many parts of Germany.
Astronomers concerned with unidentified flying objects at a centre in Mannheim, southwestern Germany, were swamped with telephone calls, and they initially thought it was a meteorite.
The Belgian observatory solved the mystery on Sunday when it linked the sighting to the crash of a Russian satellite on Friday.
The Soyuz-2.1B rocket carrying the satellite crashed into Siberia minutes after its launch due to rocket failure.
On its way down, it apparently created the streak of light seen in the European sky on Saturday.
Also, a fragment of the Russian satellite hit a residential house on a street named after cosmonauts, officials said.
