I have Migraines almost every day. I help take care of my mom because she has a lot of health problems.

    Do Less - Unknown

    Wise words for when we are caught up in doing more...

    Do less thinking,
    And pay more attention to your heart
    Do less acquiring,
    And pay more attention to what you already have

    Do less complaining,
    And pay more attention to giving
    Do less controlling,
    And pay more attention to letting go

    Do less criticizing,
    And pay more attention to complimenting
    Do less arguing,
    And pay more attention to forgiveness

    Do less running around,
    And pay more attention to stillness
    Do less talking,
    And pay more attention to silence.
