It Is Really None Of My Business!

I thought I would share this recent email,
 full of good advice.
(There will be a quiz at the end of this post.)


1. Drink plenty of water.

2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.

3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants..

4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy

5. Make time to pray.

6. Play more games

7. Read more books than you did in 2011.

8. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day

9. Sleep for 7 hours.

10. Take a 10-30 minute walk daily. And while you walk, smile.


11.  Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

12.  Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

13.  Don't overdo. Keep your limits.

14.  Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

15.  Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.

16.  Dream more while you are awake

17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..

18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner of His/her mistakes of  the past. That will ruin your present happiness.

19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.

20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

22.  Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class, but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

23.  Smile and laugh more.

24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree...


25. Call your family often.

26. Each day give something good to others.

27.  Forgive everyone for everything..

28.  Spend time w/ people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.

29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

30. What other people think of you is none of your business.

31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.



32. Do the right thing!

33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.

34. GOD heals everything.

35.  However good or bad a situation is, it will change..

36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

37. The best is yet to come..

38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.

39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

Which of the above is your favorite?

Mine is #30. 
Very thought provoking.
 We often worry so much what others think of us,
we don't follow our own dreams.
If I do ___, what if no one else likes it?
  Should you really care.....
I guess if it is a decision
 that affects more than yourself,
 yes you should care.

When it comes to self expression,
 creating something
that is totally new and different
or following your inner muse.
If you constantly
 second guess yourself,
  or are afraid to be you.....
the advice may come in handy.

After all,
if you are afraid,
 to be you......
who will be?

Love to all,

Mine is number 32 - Do the right thing.

Its the standard that I judge myself by, and sometimes, unfortunately others. Then I have to remember forgiveness.

In the past, I have made errors in judgement, but learned from the experience.

For me, #32 falls under the Golden Rule.

Be well, be happy,
xx, Carol

I guess I need to remember 25/28/31.

And 30.....I think we have to remind ourselves of all of these at one time or another.

#39 is my favorite. we tend to look outside for happiness but it is right there inside of us always. we just have to recognize it.

Such a good post. Number 20 is special for me.

Mine is no. 21 but I really like what you said at the end.

#24 resonates with me - we actually had those words in our wedding ceremony! We 'agree to disagree, agreeably' from the ceremony is the way we try to live.
