Instructions For Life
I am a huge fan of Tess Marshall’s blog, ‘The Bold Life’. I use it as my instruction manual for life. Big statement … but true.
Tess published some tips yesterday titled, ‘101 Bits of Wisdom For A Bold And Fearless 2013’.
It’s positively brilliant. Every single point resonates with me. I took some time to read/savour each point and reflect … such a good starting point to really evaluate where you are in life and if you are living with purpose and gratitude.
“Don’t drag yourself though life. You were born with wings. Learn to fly!”
“Be willing to compromise. Practice meeting other people in the middle. It’s a peaceful way to live.”
“Give thanks in advance. Expect the best. Know that things will work out. Be grateful now.”
“When life is difficult remember this too shall pass. It always has and always will.”
“Don’t take things personally. What other people do is about them. How you react is about you.”
“Love toxic people from a distance. Create boundaries and send prayers, blessings, and good thoughts.”
“Celebrate what’s right with the world. Look for people doing the right thing. Speak well of life.”
“Be true to yourself. Don’t try to be someone or something that you are not. Own your uniqueness.”
“Embrace the present. Life is now. Heal your past. Don’t fear your future. Notice you are OK right now.”
“Live the life you’ve imagined. Work hard. Live simply. Be adventurous. Serve others. Have fun.”

Happy Friday folks!
