You know I am starting to try and start 2008 on a better note! This is some pretty good advice that I think I have read in a while. this was sent to me in some email and I felt that I should share it with you as readers. You don't have to be a a Tibetan Monk to buy into this philosophy I truly believe that if we all did this and practiced it on a regular basis the world might be just a bit better of a place I hope you enjoy this!
Until next time:
