I wasn't actually feeling very loving last night. I'm not sure why. I stumbled upon the following 'rules to live by' though and thought I'd share them. We can all get in a funk sometimes, but I think its important when that happens to put things in perspective and remember that the only person that can make you happy or sad is you. So here's a little more love today...
12 Rules to Live By
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)
-Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.
-Make the best of circumstances. No one has everything and everyone has something of sorrow.
-Don't take yourself too seriously.
-Don't let criticism worry you. You can't please everybody.
-Don't let your neighbors set your standards; be yourself.
-Do things you enjoy doing but stay out of debt.
-Don't borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than actual ones.
-Since hate poisons the soul, do not cherish enmities and grudges. Avoid people who make you unhappy.
-Have many interests. If you can't travel, read about places.
-Don't hold post-mortems or spend time brooding over sorrows and mistakes.
-Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.
-Keep busy at something. A very busy person never has time to be unhappy.
