Tips for Life…

This was re-posted in Ann Landers, Sunday, May 5, but is as relevant today as when it was initially posted:

1. Give people more than they expect, and do so cheerfully.

2. Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you’d like.

3. Don’t say “I love you” unless you really mean it.

4. When you say “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.

5. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

6. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt, but it’s the only way to live life completely.

7. In disagreements, fight fair. No name calling.

8. Don’t judge people by their relatives.

9. When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

10. Call your mom.

11. Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.

12. Don’t let a little squabble damage a good friendship.

13. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

14. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

15. Marry someone you love to talk to. As you get older, good conversation will be one of the principal elements of an enduring relationship.

16. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

17. Read more books, and watch less TV.

18. In disagreements with loved ones, deal with the current situation.  Don’t bring up the past.

19. Never interrupt when you are being flattered.

20. Mind your own business.

21. Trust in God, but lock your car.

I think these are great tips and try to live my life accordingly…how about you?

Happy New Year!

Happy 2013 everyone!  As I do most every morning, I read Annie’s Mailbox while having my coffee and today’s column had a reprint of the “Golden Rules for Living” by Miriam Hamilton Keare…I think they are a nice follow-up to a my “12 Wishes” posts and a great way to start the year:

“Golden Rules for Living” by Miriam Hamilton Keare

1. If you open it, close it.

2. If you turn it on, turn it off.

3. If you unlock it, lock it up,

4. If you break it, admit it.

5. If you can’t fix it, call in someone who can.

6. If you borrow it, return it.

7. If you value it, take care of it.

8. If you make a mess, clean it up.

9. If you move it, put it back.

10. If it belongs to someone else, get permission to use it.

11. If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.

12. If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.

Remember today that the new has come. It’s a new year with new opportunities, and it’s time for you to be the new you. Let this be the year that you break old habits and addictions. Let this be the year that you move forward into a new life…it is what I wish for myself and for you too.  Happy New Year…
