    Surrender to the fact that life, unfortunately is NOT fair.

    When overwhelmed, repeat to yourself: Life is NOT an emergency.

    Make peace with imperfection.

    Relax. Remember that even when you die, your 'In' basket won't be empty.

    Remember....100 years from now...all new people.
