Inner Peace

I received the following in an e-mail from a friend in Vienna this morning and thought that the world should be told:

Inner Peace

I am passing this on to you because it definitely works, and we could well use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace. Dr Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished."

So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a bottle of Kaluha, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now.

Please pass this on to those whom you think might be in need of inner peace.


Aww, too sweet! Via tHatDude and (some excellent stuff, btw):

I’ve often read that to achieve an inner peace we should finish some things we started, but have put aside.

Today I finished that ham sandwich from yesterday, the half-quart of Jack Daniels from last weekend, the rest of my Budweiser, the rest of my stash, and then I went out and punched that neighbor I never liked.

I can tell you, I’ve never felt better.

Gotta add a few thoughts to Thinking Rock :-)
