Daily Jolt -- Advent Calendar Special

Each day, a special Advent-themed Daily Jolt, with an opportunity for reflection and a microChallenge. Some of the reflections come from unlikely sources, and the challenges help you to take an action, usually a small one, based on the reflection.

Genuine happiness consists in those spiritual qualities of love, compassion, patience, tolerance and forgiveness and so on. For it is these which provide both for our happiness and others’ happiness. — Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

Write down the words, love, compassion, patience, tolerance and forgiveness. Next to each of them, write one thing you can do today for yourself or others to express that qualities.
