Have you ever heard the expression that life is like a inbox full of e-mail? There is stuff happening all the time, and the list of things you need and have to do is like e-mails popping in like spam. No matter how often you empty you inbox it will continue to fill up, and you will never become “finished”. You should not try to empty your inbox, because it is no use. Life is not meant to be “finished” – it’s a continuous act of existing!

Don’t try to empty you inbox, or you will get sick by stress. And become disappointed in yourself that you could never “do everything” that is on your list. Just realize that you can’t and be happy about the things you do. That’s what I try to do, all the time.
