Read -- a pretty tall order
« on: February 06, 2009, 11:22:36 AM »
Got this e-mail, made it into a decent word document (better than it appeared when it came to me), for all my forum friends to read.  A pretty big amount of things to implement into daily life, but I challenge us all to try to do at least 80% of them, hee, and smiling that big smile.  Have that wonderful, most awesome day, life, attract that great and wonderful health, we are deserving of it all.  Cindi

HANDBOOK 2009

 Health:
 1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat breakfast  like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a  beggar.
3. Eat more foods  that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is  manufactured in plants.
 4. Live with the 3 E's -- Energy, Enthusiasm, and  Empathy.
 5. Make time to  practice meditation, yoga, and prayer.
 6. Play more games.
 7. Read more books than you did in 2008.
 8. Sit in silence  for at least 10 minutes each day.
 9. Sleep for 7 hours.
 10. Take a 10-30 minutes walk every day. And while you walk, smile.

 Personality:

11. Don't compare your life to others'.  You have no idea what their  journey is all about.
 12. Don't have negative thoughts or things you cannot control.  Instead invest your energy in  the positive present moment.
 13. Don't over do. Keep your limits.
 14. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
 15. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
 16. Dream more while you are awake.
 17. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
 18. Forget issues of the past. Don't remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past.
       That will ruin your present happiness.
 19. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't hate others.
 20. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
 21. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
 22. 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.
 23. Smile and laugh more.
 24. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
 Society:

 25. Call your family often.
 26. Each day give something good to others.
 27. Forgive everyone for everything.
 28. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
 29. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
 30. What other people think of you is none of your business.
 31. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will.  Stay in touch.
 Life:
 32. Do the right thing!
 33. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful.
 34. GOD heals everything.
 35. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
 36. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
 37. The best is yet to come.
 38. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.
 39. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

When you are done with that list you are then Perfect, which is really boring.  I know because I've been there.  So I went back and redeveloped a few bad habits so people could stand to be around me.   :mrgreen:

And if you develop all of them, what will be your reward???

You will grow old and die, just like the rest of us.  :-*

JP, Brian, brats, brats, brats, you both be those partners-in-crime, teasing.  Hey, that is healthy stuff, how about a #42.....  How did you know that there was a 40 and 41 hidden and lurking in my mind. Yep, yep, working on that ol' rock pile, arranging in certain ways, there will be more, smiling.  Have that most awesomely great and wonderful day, we all be attracting that great health, bring it on!!  Cindi
