|On this date in 1951, the comic strip Dennis the Menace made its newspaper debut. Comic strips are an enduring part of our culture, both in print and in the present-day online editions. Comic strips provide not only a laugh but also humorous and sometimes stark commentary on topics ranging from growing up to office dynamics and politics.
Today, look in print or online at a few comic strips. Find one with a message that truly resonates with you. Cut or print it out, and hang or keep it near your workspace today. Reflect on why it resonates with you. Does it mirror something neutral, positive, or negative in your life? On paper, jot down actions you can take to make the situation you're contemplating better, or to maintain it if it's already good, or how to just be more in the moment when the situation arises. Hang the paper in your sacred space and review as necessary.
