Life’s Little Instruction Book

Life’s Little Instruction Book 🙂

taken from a sweet girl. Find her @ the blog URL given below:

· Have a firm handshake.
· Look people in the eye.
· Sing in the shower.
· Own a great stereo system.
· If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.
· Keep secrets.
· Never give up on anybody.
Miracles happen everyday.

· Always accept an outstretched hand.
· Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
· Whistle.
· Avoid sarcastic remarks.
· Choose your life’s mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 per cent of all your happiness or misery.
· Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.
· Lend only those books you never care to see again.
· Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.
· When playing games with ! children, let them win.
· Give people a second chance, but not a third.
· Be romantic.
· Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.

· Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.

· Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the caller’s.
· Be a good loser.
· Be a good winner.
· Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.
· When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.
· Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born.

· Keep it simple.
· Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.
· Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.

· Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets

· Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the one’s you did.
· Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
· Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.
· Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you.

· Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.
· Begin each day with some of your favorite music.
· Once in a while, take the scenic route.

· Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them, ‘Someone who thinks you’re terrific.’
· Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.
· Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m.

· Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job.
· Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.
· Make someone’s day by paying the toll for the person in the car behind you.

· Become someone’s hero.
· Marry only for love.
· Count your blessings.
· Compliment the meal when you’re a guest in someone’s home.
· Wave at the children on a school bus.
· Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal with people.

· Don’t expect life to be fair.
