Everyone is talking about what it takes to have a better year this year. It’s pretty simple. Everything we need to know to have a happy life, we learned as a child.
- Always tell the truth.
- Use kind words.
- Keep your promises.
- Giggle and laugh often.
- Be positive.
- Love one another.
- Don’t judge others. We don’t know their situation.
- Always be grateful.
- Forgiveness is mandatory.
- Try new things each day.
- Say Please & Thank you.
- Say your prayers.
Don’t let life slip out of your hands because you were too busy counting the flaws. Instead, focus on the positive and how much you have grown. Make memories, make friends, and notice those things which make life beautiful. Just imagine how wonderful it would be if everyone applied those rules each day.
Something to Think About
There is a tendency to think about what we can do each year differently at the beginning of the New Year, but the secret is not to wait. Make those little differences daily.
Apply the rules this week, as well as the entire year!
