15  Rules  of  Life
Each  new  day  is  a  blank  page  in  the  diary  of  our  life.
The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story we possibly can.

  1. ACCEPT   YOURSELF
    Life  is  for  living,  enjoying  the  sunshine.  Decisions  determine  destiny,  create  your  own  sunshine.  Fall  in  love  with  taking  care  of  yourself.

  2. SMILE
    A  smile  is  an  inexpensive  way  to  improve  your  looks.  Everyone  you  meet  deserves  to  be  greeted  with  a  smile.  The  most  beautiful  smile  belongs  to  those  who  make  others  smile.

  3. BE  HAPPY
    There  is  no  beauty  without  happiness.  Allow  yourself  to  enjoy  each  happy  moment  in  your  life.

  4. BE  KIND
    You  have  the  power  to  make  people  feel  good.   Be  kind  to  unkind  people.  Being  a  good  person  is  a  little  like  expecting  the  bull  not  to  attack  you  because  you  are  a  vegetarian.

  5. BE  STRONG
    If  you  want  to  fly,  give  up  everything  that  weights  you  down.  A  bird  sitting  on  a  tree  is  never  afraid  of  the  branch  breaking,  because  her  trust  is  not  the  branch  but  on  her  own  wings.

  6. DON'T  GIVE  UP
    If  opportunity  doesn't  knock,  build  a  door.  If  it  doesn't  work  the  first  time,  find  another  way.   If  you  can't  find  a  way,  make  one.  Never  back  down.  If  you  get  tired,  learn  to  rest,  not  to  quit.

  7. DON'T  COMPARE
    Everyone's  on  a  different  journey.  A  flower  does  not  think  of  competing  to  the  flower  next  to  it.   It  just  blooms.  When  a  flower  doesn't  bloom,  you  fix  the  environment  in  which  it grows,  not  the  flower.  If  the  grass  is  greener  on  the  other  side  it's  probably  getting  better  care.

  8. AVOID  NEGATIVITY
    Never  go  to  a  doctor  whose  office  plants  have  died.  Negative  feelings  come  from  negative  thoughts.  A  negative  mind  will  never  give  you  a  positive life;  you  can't  live  a  positive  life  with  a  negative  mind.  Avoid  negative  thoughts,  situations  and  people.  Live  life  to  the  fullest  and  focus  on  the  positive.

  9. ATTITUDE
    Start  each  day  with  a  grateful  heart.  Develop  and  maintain  a  good  positive  attitude.  Mental  toughness  is  essential  to  success.  A  bad  attitude  is  like  a  flat  tire.  You  can't  go  any  where  until  you  change  it.

  10. BITE  YOUR  TONGUE
    If  you  can’t  say  anything  nice,  don’t  say  anything  at  all.  The  tongue  has  no  bones,  but  is  strong  enough  to  break  a  heart.

  11. COURAGE  TO  CHANGE
    If  you  do  not  step  forward,  you  will  always  be  in  the  same  place.  If  you  continue  to  carry  the  bricks  from  your  past,  you  will  end  up  building  the  same  house.

  12. PEACE  WITH  THE   PAST
    Don't  let  yesterday  take  up  too  much  of  today.   Focus  on  being  present  and  creating  a  better  future.   Make  peace  with  your past  --  so  it  won't  spoil  the  present.

  13. HALT
    Hungry - Angry - Lonely - Tired
    Take  time  off.   The  world  will  not  fall  apart  without  you.

  14. STAY  HEALTHY
    The  best  health  care  plan  is  a  self-care  plan.  Eat  your  FOOD  as  your  medicines;  otherwise,  you  have  to  eat  your  MEDICINES  as  your  food.

  15. REMEMBER  TO  TOUCH  BASE
    Base  is  where  you  belong.  Base  is  where  you  feel  comfortable,  secure,  loved,  restored  and  trusted.

 

The  Meaning  of  life  is  to  give  life  meaning

 

Life is a DNA software system;  a do-it-yourself  project.  Life is a lively process of becoming; it is not about finding yourself; it is about creating yourself.  Character develops itself in the stream of life.  Each day is the scholar of yesterday, and can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.  That is what we make it, always has been, always will be. 

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.  If the road is beautiful, then worry about destination, but if destination is beautiful, then worry about road.  Honor your path and trust your journey.  We know and understand that we have a limited time on earth - and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest.

We all have different journeys, different paths along the way.  Brighten up your day, you don’t own all the problems in the world.  We are here for a short visit, and be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
 

We share, we learn, we grow.  Live and learn and pass it on.
