There comes a time in everyones life (no matter how old or young
you might be), where you have lived through enough life, that
you find yourself contemplating where you have been and where
you might be going. I have read many people's views on life
and I share many of their thoughts. I decided I wanted to just express
my own opinions as well, as I reflect on my life and will update
this as I learn more in life. Some thoughts I express may sound
familiar because after all, we are just humans and as evolved
as we think we are ... we aren't. So if you are easily bored, leave
this page. Can't say you haven't been warned :)
1. Never feel you are not "Good
Enough". We are all special in our own way.
stop caring about who you feel is your enemy. They need you
more than you or they realize.
3. Be kind to animals.
They also need you more than "most" realize.
If you have a wife, husband, loved one, best friend or just someone
special in your life, greet them with a kiss every morning or when
ever you are given the opportunity to be "graced" with
their presence. Tomorrow doesn't always come.
5. When you
feel down ... pout! When you are up ... shout. Our lips were given
to us to express how we feel. Be happy if you can move your lips.
Some people can't.
6. Think about what odors give you that
warm/happy/fuzzie feeling all over. Like the smell of fresh cut
grass or the smell of rain in the air and yep that fresh baked pie.
Remember ... some people can't smell.
7. Never let
a day go by that you don't take a bite of something sinful! Just
don't eat the whole thing.
8. Always listen to children
with a "devoted ear". They are not talking to you to bore
you. They need to express themselves to you to learn and grow.
9. I have read that you should do something everyday that
makes you feel very afraid. Sorry ... I don't need the stress lol.
Do something everyday that makes you feel special and alive.
Don't Judge ... Least you be Judged? Makes sense to me!
Never dress like a teenager once you are no longer one. It only
invites "mockery from those who were jealous of you to begin
12. Never stop acting like a kid, just don't get carried
away. That is how accidents happen.
13. Listen MORE to people
and speak less. You would be surprised at what you will learn. The
"ART of Listening" is just that ... an art.
PHYSICALLY EXERCISE as much as you can even when you feel you are
exhausted. If you don't use it ... you "will" loose it!
Muscle tone and physical mobility.
15. EXERCISE your brain
too. That is also a part of you that will shrink without stimulation.
SMILE! especially when you don't feel like it. It indirectly replenishes
17. Give something you own away for free. Garage
sales are nice, but some people can't even afford the reduced
price and usually need it much more than you do.
I say smile more often? :)
19. When you feel kinda
down and depressed? TELL SOMEONE! Just letting those negative emotions
out will really take a "monkey off your back"and make
you think more clearly.
20. If you dream ... pay attention.
Your subconscious is trying to tell you something.
