How often in life, do you become consumed by your troubles as you worry about what the future may bring? Many times, even the smallest of problems seem even more exasperating than the big ones. The good news is that there's an answer to dealing with them. It's all a matter of staying present to the moment and leaving the future to the benevolence of the Universe.

I have usually found it useful to shift my focus. This usually involves taking some kind of action such as going for a walk or reading a good book. Helping out someone else with their own problems is an excellent way of getting out of your own troubles. Simply kiss them away.

If you like to laugh, I can offer you a solution. My series of hilarious satires is guaranteed to keep you laughing in stitches until the end. "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" within the next month.

Transport yourself to the fictional town of Bucksnort, Wisconsin where you'll meet the zany characters on Dinkledorf Drive. You'll meet the nasty town gossip and back stabber, Priscilla Bunhead, who is always digging in the dirt in order to make life miserable for her neighbors.

Just wait until she gets into another fight with Martha Mayhem. Martha has always got her scissors ready to get some revenge upon her arch nemesis who wears a tight little bun on top of her head. She'll simply snip it off.

Watch out for the dirty old man, one hundred-five year-old Poopsy Dinkledorf, who has the annoying habit of peering into people's windows. When he spies upon the voluptuous and haughty Lula Mae Bunsaplenty, he will meet his match.

If you happen to take one of Sister Mary Olga's classes in Advanced Holiness, don't take a seat next to Poopsy's great grandson, Fartley. The little lad lives up to his name. He takes perverse pleasure in passing gas. Eventually a classmate will play a trick upon him that will cure him of that.

Speaking of Sister Mary Olga, she has her own way of dealing with life's problems. She simply lights up a Marlboro and sends up a smoke-signaling prayer to God. She also washes away her cotton mouth with some healthy swigs of bourbon.

This inevitably gets her into trouble with her Reverend Mother. Even though Mother Carmen has dealt with overcoming her past as a prostitute, she is not very open-minded about helping Sister Mary Olga out with her own problems.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if every problem you have can be handled in such a light-hearted manner!

The good news is that every problem has a solution and usually there are many.

In the meantime, how about giving yourself a break and taking a trip to Bucksnort. You won't regret it.

Humor helps to not take life so seriously!
