A wonderful poem, full of good advice, although not always easy to follow:
The Guest House
~ Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
Some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows
Who violently sweep your house
Empty of all its furniture
Still treat each guest honourably
He may be cleaning you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
Meet them at the door laughing
And invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes
Because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond.
