ter and are happier than people whose friendships are more of the Facebook kind. But the hard thing about friendships is that, as adults in this culture, they tend to go by the way- side when we are tired, busy, stressed. In short; just when we need them most.

Focus on your friendships: put time and energy into shar- ing time and space with people you like and trust. If your whole life is con- sumed by business meetings, if


boss has claims on your time, schedule “meet- ings”

with your friends.

That way, when

work de- mands your available time be- yond what it should, you can with all honesty say, “I’m sorry, I have a meeting that day.” Su- per-busy? Meet your friend for a workout or a meal—I mean, you gotta eat, right? Share rides to places, so you can talk on the way. Have a slumber party, if that’s what it takes to get to- gether.

In short, rather than squish-

Hi Upbeat! Daniel Peters here! Upbeat around the world! Where to send our photos? Upbeat! We just returned from an epic trip to Mongolia and, of course brought the Upbeat Times along with us. ~ Thanks! Daniel and Alex in Monte Rio

Our parents deserve our honor and respect for giving us life itself. Beyond this they almost always made countless sacrifices as they cared for and nurtured us through our infancy and childhood, provided us with the necessities of life, and nursed us through physical illnesses and the emotional stresses of growing up. ~ Ezra Taft Benson

ing your friends into the inter- stices of your life, build your life around your friends. And when you’re together, really connect: talk about important things, share ideas and feel- ings and tell your friends how grateful you are to have them. (A gratitude practice, remem- ber?) In the long run, friends are the relationships that hold us, keep us together, bolster us and bring us joy. You will never find a better return on your in- vestment.

mental we are, the less we can access happiness. I’m not say- ing to throw out your most highly cherished ideas of right and wrong: we all need a moral compass. I’m just saying that, in the course of deciding who we are (or who we present our- selves to be), we tend to choose camps, draw lines and defend our positions, to the death. It’s exhausting and enervating. It creates wars and perpetuates injustice. Becom- ing less judgmen- tal is hard, hard work. We’re taught

from early times that our judg- ments tell others

who we are, and we feel

oddly safe when we can point to someone or something and say, “that’s bad!” So, with the habit of a lifetime, in a culture that thrives on making judg- ments, I’m just saying, give it a try. Give someone a break. The guy who cut you off just got fired, maybe. Or had a bad diagnosis. The woman standing over there in the humiliation of the segregated smoking zone is working her way back from be- ing addicted to something that nearly killed her.


when someone does something dumb or unconscious or nasty, that we all bring with us all the pain and baggage of traumatic childhood events; the sorrow and disappointments of life, the wounds. We’re all walking around with holes in ourselves. I’m full of holes: so are you. We try and try to fill them, usually with things that make the holes bigger, until the threaten to eat us up. We don’t know any bet- ter, at first. No one tells us how. But one day, something sweet and gentle falls into the hole and it feels good and stays, and

A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they were on the way to church service, “And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?” One bright little girl replied, “Because people are sleeping.”
