Relationship rules

1.Get along with yourself. The one relationship you will have until you die is yourself.

2.Value peopleYou cannot make another person feel important if you secretly feel that he or she is a nobody.

3.Make the effort to form relationships. The result of a person who has never served others? Loneliness.

4.Understand the Reciprocity RuleOver time, people come to share reciprocal, similar attitudes toward each other.

5.Follow the Golden RuleThe timeless principle: treat others the way you want to be treated.

Promise to Thyself

I Promise Myself:

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind

To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best

To be just as enthuisiatic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

With Gratitude to Christian D. Larson - Thank you sir, you have taken my consious to next dimension.

From My friend's blog .. Beginning Today

Beginning Today .....

Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will never change. Only I can change by choosing to do so.

Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today.

Beginning today I will look in the mirror and I will see a person worthy of my respect and admiration. This capable woman looking back at me is someone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better.

Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life. I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world and I will unselfishly share this gift with others. I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others.

Beginning today I will take a moment to step off the beaten path and to revel in the mysteries I encounter. I will face challenges placed before me with courage and determination. I will overcome what barriers there may be which hinder my quest for growth and self-improvement.

Beginning today I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time. Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love.

Beginning today I walk with renewed faith in human kindness. Regardless of what has gone before, I believe there is hope for a brighter and better future.

Beginning today I will open my mind and my heart. I will welcome new experiences. I will meet new people. I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in an imperfect world. But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles.

Beginning today I am responsible for my own happiness and I will do things that make me happy . . . admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath . . . pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures.

Beginning today I will learn something new; I will try something different; I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer. I will change what I can and the rest I will let go. I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.

Beginning today. And every day.
