    I can’t imagine anything we get bothered about in life matters.
    Constantly squandered thinking about the various things that people encounter every
    single and every working day is certainly really important, as no
    other woman will probably confront life for any of us.
    I feel that folk ought to be a whole lot more mentally stable.

    Knowledge is great, but a lot of what we should think
    about is so abstract. Having a cup of tea is a zen activity that takes one back again to the present moment in time.
    We must be more in the here and today, without being overcome
    by our lifestyle and the dilemmas we experience each day.
