Five Things to Keep in Mind

Jeromy quotes five things to keep in mind from a book, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.

Life is Hard.
You are not that important.
Your life is not about you.
You are not in control.
You are going to die.

Those are some good guidelines for life, though I would modify a few of them.

You are not that important, but you can do important things.
Your life is not about you; it is about what you can do for others.
You are not in control of what happens to you, but you can control how you react to it.
You are going to die, but only physically. "Luminous beings are we. Not this crude matter."

I might also say "Life is hard. It's harder if you're stupid," but that's mean sarcasm and certainly not how I roll.
