default Instructions for Life

Post by Wildfire1992 on Sun Feb 24, 2013 5:03 pm

So....I a few years ago I found this paper with these instructions in a trash can. It caught my eye I took it out and read them...and fell in love with them even though I don't always follow all of them; though some of them I'm really good at. I read them to Pauline at one point and she told me I should share them: months later I finally am. LOL. So enjoy, and if want to add anymore feel free to.

1. Give people more then they expect and do it cheerfully.

2. Memorize your favorite poem.

3. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have, or sleep all you want.

4. When you you say, " I love you", mean it.

5. when you say, "I'm sorry", look the person in the eye.

6. Be engaged at lest six months before you get married.

7. Believe in love at first sight.

8. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

9. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live completely.

10. IN disagreements, fight fairly. No name-calling.

11. Don't judge people by their relatives.

12. Talk slowly but think quickly.

13. When someone ask you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

14. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

15. Call your mom.

16. Say, "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

17. When you lose, don't loose the lesson.

18. Remember the three R's: Respect for self, Respect for others, Responsibility for your actions.

19. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

20. When you realize you've made a mistake take immediate steps to correct it.

21. Smile when picking up the phone. The cller will hear it in your voice.

22. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as imporetnant as any other.

23. Spend some time alone.

24. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values.

25. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

26. Read more books and watch less TV.

27. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll get to ejoy it a second time.

28. Trust in God but lock your car.

29. A loving atmosphere in your home is so important. Do all you can to create a tranquil harmonious home.

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

31. Read between the lines.

32. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.

33. Be gentle with the earth.

34. Pray. There's immeasurable power in it.

35. Never interrupt when you are being flattered.

36. Mind your own business.

37. Don't trust a man/woman who doesn't close his/her eyes when you kiss.

38. Once a year go someplace you never been before.

39. If you make a lot of money, pit it to use helping other while your are living. That is wealth's greatest satisfaction.

40. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a stroke of luck.

41. Learn the rules then break some.

42. Remember that the best relationships is one where your love for each other is great then your need for each other.

43. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.

44. Remember that you character is your destiny.

45. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
