A Few Good Thoughts

a foot bridge on a foggy morning

I would like to share a portion of an email that I received earlier this week.

It had some really good points, and I couldn’t let it pass without some mention.

A few things to work on each day:

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

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

Don’t over do. Keep your limits.

Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.

Dream more while you are awake

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

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

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

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

No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

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.

Smile and laugh more.

You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree…

Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did!

    My favorite is, “Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with His/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.” This is so essential for a healthy and happy relationship.
