I find the humor of Chuck Lorre to be funny, filled with deep irony and sound words to live by.
For so many years I've roamed this planet looking for meaning only to find that when I let go of searching and enjoy what is right in front of me ... life became more pleasurable. Often the most depressed clients I work with are people who keep asking "what does it all mean". The irony to it all is that there is NO MEANING -- when we stop looking for meaning and DO the things that energize us we find enjoyment, satisfaction, peace.
Hope you enjoy the vanity card below and hope the idea of doing rather than searching appeals to you!

Miscellaneous Show Biz Tips
Never forget that taking a bow and ducking are essentially the same thing.
The reason you suffer is because you think your identity and worth as a human being are inextricably tied into your career. Don't think that.
Success has many parents, and even more lawyers. They're paying you a lot because they're killing you. Don't grow too attached to your agent. Like a beloved spouse, they come and go.
If you want fair, go to Pomona September 8-26. Wear comfy shoes. It's not true that if you believe the good reviews, you must also believe the bad ones. The bad ones could have been written by mean, stupid people who hate your success.
Act like your job is the most important thing in the world, but never forget that it's ultimately meaningless. All we are is dust in the wind, yada-yada-yada."
