Heres my top 10 rules that I follow, when life gives you lemons and all that. Sometimes when your having a bad day or an even worse week, we forget the little things in life we should be grateful for.
1. Easy one.
Having a bad day? Stop, look around. What have you got? A home, family, friends, job, love, warmth, happiness?
I know what I have and for that, im very thankful.
2. Don’t judge others until you’ve walked in their shoes.
Quite important really, how many of us have problems? I know I have, my point?
Everyone is battling something you have no idea about. Be kind, don’t judge.
3. Love is not what you say. Love is what you do.
If you love someone or something, show it.
ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS.
4. Let go of what’s gone, but learn the lesson.
I believe more or less everything happens for a reason, good and bad.. doesn’t make it fair or right..
Wrong decisions, big mistakes, let go and move on but more importantly learn from them.
This has been a big one for myself, being albe to let go of my cancer past hasn’t been easy but I have definaly learnt some valuable lessons!
5. If it’s something you love, never give up… Keep going.
Whether its a hobby, quest for the perfect job, new house, absolutely anything.. If you want something so badly, make it happen.
6. Be patient.
Things will get better, I promise. The saying goes, good things come to those who wait.
7. INTEGRITY IS EVERYTHING.
8. It’s okay to be affaid, but never let the fear stop you.
Step out of your comfort zone, fear can turn into excitement.
So what do I do? The girl whos affaid of heights, jumps out of a plane at 11,000 feet!
Whenever I’m doing something new, I get that tummy churning fear, but ive learnt never to let that stop me. Lifes too short.
9. Happiness is a decision.
Your in control, you choose your own happiness. If your not happy, change it. If you are, enjoy it.
10. Live in the moment and look forward to the future.
I’m very excited to see what 2017 brings but i’m leaning to live for the here and now too!
Following these 10 rules, help me see the good, the important and the change. Something we all just need to take a few steps back to see magic.
Optimism is a happiness magnet, If you stay positive, good things and good people will be drawn to you.
Do you have any positive quotes? I would love to hear them…
Much love, Gem X
