Take A Rest!

When you feel life is too intense,

imagine it as a TV soap opera.

Turn the sound down until it seems manageable

or mute the sound and read the text.

It reads differently than it sounds.

This idea came to mind as I was sitting in a high-tech dentist chair and there was a soap opera on the TV screen. The sound was turned off and the script appeared in captions. The goings-on seemed less dramatic that way. Sometimes we can’t eliminate the drama in our lives, but we can turn the volume down.
