“If you see children walking along the sidewalk after a rain, and there’s a puddle in front of them, what are they going to do when they get to that puddle?  They’re going to jump in!  They’re going to laugh, splash around, and have a good time.  What does an older person do?  Walk around it?  No, they won’t just walk around it – they’ll complain the whole time!  You want to live differently.  You want to live with a spring in your step, a smile on your face.  Why not make cheerfulness, outrageousness, playfulness a new priority for yourself?  Make feeling good your expectation.  You don’t have to have a reason to feel good – you’re alive; you can feel good for no reason at all! ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

Remember the movie Billy Jack starring Tom Laughlin?  The film and its sequels have long since decamped to cable, but Tom Laughlin is still very much around.  In addition to his movie work, he’s a lecturer and author and a Jungian-schooled psychologist whose specialty is working with people who have been diagnosed with cancer.  Tom Laughlin teaches and leads workshops; here’s a paraphrase of something I heard him say:

The moment a person learns he’s got terminal cancer, a profound shift takes place in his psyche.  At one stroke in the doctor’s office he becomes aware of what really matters to him.  Things that sixty seconds earlier had seemed all-important suddenly appear meaningless, while people and concerns that he had till then dismissed at once take on supreme importance.
