Secrets to a Happy Life...

* Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

* Live with the 3 E's: Energy, Enthusiasm, Empathy.

* Spend more time with people over the age of 70 and those under the age of 6.

* Dream more while you are awake.

* Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and
eat less foods that are manufactured in plants.

* Try to make at least 3 people smile each day.

* Clear clutter from your house, car and desk... and let new energy flow into your life.

* Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, issues of the past, negative thoughts, or things you cannot control. Instead, invest your energy in the present positive moment.

* Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum, but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime. -

* Life isn't fair, but it's still good and wonderful.

* Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

* Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

* You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

* Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

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

* Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, and wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

* No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

* Frame every so-called disaster with these words: "In five years, will this matter?"

* What other people think of you is none of your business.

* Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

* However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

* Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.

* Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful, or joyful.

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

* No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up. Make a good appearance.

* Do the right thing.

* Call your mother and father often.

* Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

* Enjoy the ride. It's been worthwhile.. (no regrets!)

and lastly, my favorite:

* The best is yet to come.

love, now and always,
