Life 2 – Simple Wisdom

Posted by cotojo on June 22, 2007

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other

Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, “I love you,” mean it

When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.

Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone’s dream. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

Don’t judge people by their relatives.

Talk slowly but think quickly.

When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.

Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Spend some time alone.

    Life is never meant to be simple Lisa, but we can shape it and improve on each day with simple things such as a smile and helping others.
    Not only do friends inspire you, inspiration also comes from deep within :o)
    Wishing you and your family a great weekend
