Chicken Soup for the Soul

The Miracle of Life

By Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Kimberly Kirberger

It all started when my brother got sick. I was 9, and he was just 9 months. My mother thought it was an ear infection because he kept grabbing his ear. The first doctor she took him to told her that it was an ear infection. After a week, he was still grabbing his ear.

Understanding

By Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Kimberly Kirberger

I was going through a stage of deep depression. I was having a lot of family problems and feelings of very low self-esteem. I just hated myself—I have no idea why. I would joke about death to my friends, and a few times I would even talk about trying to kill myself.

Gratitude Inspires Others

By Wayne Dyer

Gratitude and humility, on the other hand, send signals to all who meet and greet us that we’re all connected to something larger than life itself. This reminds me of the wisdom I discovered many years ago reading the Kena Upanishad: “At whose bequest does the mind think? Who bids the body live? Who makes the tongue speak?

Tire Pressure Sensor

By Teresa Aquila

Tire pressure sensors or tire pressure monitoring systems have been mandated by law on all light vehicles (under 10,000 pounds) manufactured after September 2007. The law was a response to the Firestone recall of the mid 1990s, during the Clinton Administration. Although tire pressure monitoring systems have been around since 1986, mostly in Europe for higher priced luxury models, they started making their way into luxury models across the globe.

Countering the Stigmas of Animal Adoption

By Karen Ellis-Ritter

Many people are apprehensive about animal adoption. There is a commonly-held belief that rescue dogs might have “too much baggage” or that it is better to adopt a fresh-faced puppy who isn’t set in their ways. That apprehension would skyrocket in some when I would mention that we were looking to adopt a Pit Bull. I know with certainty that stigmatizing a dog based on her breed is unjust; just as it is unjust to place stigmas based on anyone’s appearance.

A Bit of an Obit

By Cary Bayer

A major reason why so many people put off doing what they really want to do in their lives is because they think they have so much time left to live. The average life span of a woman in America is 81.2 years, while for men it’s 76.4. For women that means just 29,638 days, for men 27,886 days. If you’re reading this now, ladies, chances are good that more than half of those days are already gone. Probably even more if you’re a man.

Doing What Makes You Happy Makes Everyone Happy

By Jonna Shutowick. M.S. Ed.

A great way to get in touch with what truly makes you happy is to think back to when you were a young kid with “nothing to do.” What did you do to entertain yourself? Did you build forts out of furniture and blankets? Did you listen to music and try to sing or play along? Did you draw or redesign your room or closet? Did you read? The activities that made the time slip away without notice are the things that we need to be doing more of in our adult life. If they made our hearts smile back in the day, they are sure to do the same today. Some things are obvious, like reading or singing. If you liked it then, you like it now. But what if building blanket forts in the dining room was your bliss?
