If you make a reservation on Wednesday for a Saturday-night dinner at your favorite restaurant, you’ll spend the next three days imagining your pasta carbonara to come — which improves your weekend and your week.
Consider doing your chores during the workweek; the chores will take less time because you have less time. This will leave your weekends free for more rejuvenating activities.

Forgiveness is not easy, and I think this is the reason it is such a tremendous strength to cultivate. Interestingly, searching for an image to represent forgiveness, the enduring and most often image that turned up in my search was two people hugging each other, or two hands clasping each other. Symbolic of union, acceptance, meeting, feeling as one with the other. A trait of compassion.

Good to read this post from digg. I also learned about the “old reader” (google it)!
