7 Rules of Life

Dec 30, 2012 - 18 comments

With the New Year upon us, I thought this was a perfect thing to post.  Very wise words!  Happy New Year to you all!

1.  Make peace with the past so it won't screw up the present.
2.  What others think of you is none of your business.
3.  Time heals almost everything, give it time.
4.  Don't compare your life to others and don't judge them.  You have no idea what their journey is all about.
5.  Stop thinking too much, it's alright not to know the answers.  They will come to you when you least expect it.
6.  No one is in charge of your happiness, except you.
7.  Smile.  You don't own all the problems in the world.

LOVE this list!

Not to be over-analytical,  but if you don't know what others think of you,  you have no idea how your behavior is affecting anyone, and have no way to steer your way through life.

Really.  People who are unable/unwilling to accept feedback from other people about their own  behavior are so totally adrift they can't even  function.

If it were up to me, I'd reword the list beginning with calling them guidelines rather than rules.
But generally, these are good, the idea being not to judge others, not to worry what others think about you and to relax and enjoy life.

Wishing you and yours health, happiness and serenity in the New Year :)

by poconoc The list is self explanatory all of the things you mentioned are great points. If one can follow all of these rules they will have a happy and prosperous life. I must say I don't care what others think of me and I don't get into people business and don't like gossiping and people in my business. I can relate to these rules because they are true great insight and words of wisdom nursegirl6572.
