Spiritual Fitness

IF YOU CAN start the day without caffeine or pills.
IF YOU ARE cheerful, ignoring aches and pains.
IF YOU CAN resist complaining and boring people with your troubles.
IF YOU CAN understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time.
IF YOU CAN overlook when people take things out on you when, though no fault of yours something goes wrong.
IF YOU CAN take criticism and blame without resentment.
IF YOU CAN face the world without lies or deceit.
IF YOU CAN conquer tension without medical help.
IF YOU CAN relax without liquor.
IF YOU CAN sleep without the aid of drugs…THEN you are probably a dog.
