I recently came across this compilation of simple rules to live by—they absolutely resonated with me and I thought I’d share them with you:

  1. Appreciate what you have before it turns into what you had.
  2. Family isn’t important, it’s everything.
  3. Be yourself—don’t pretend to be someone else or change who you are just to “fit in”.
  4. People will inspire you or drain you—choose wisely.
  5. Don’t let others dictate your life.
  6. It is okay to be afraid, but don’t let fear stop you.
  7. Sometimes silence is better than being right.
  8. Avoid overthinking—life is too short to worry about unnecessary things.
  9. Fix it or deal with it, but stop complaining about it.
  10. Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not obsess, but breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

What are some “rules” you live by?

  1. I try to live as simply as possible. And I try not to care to much: each one of us does what thinks it’s right and no one else has anything to do with that. From the moment I adopted this line of thinking I became much more relaxed and happy.
    Live your life, love your people, be grateful for having a roof above your head, for having clothes and food. And everything else will come along.

  2. “Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
    “Worrying is like a rocking chair. Gives you something to do but takes you nowhere”

    Also majority of these rules are what I also live by.

  3. I wish I could live by #7 more! “Sometimes silence is better than being right,” and the corollary, “Would I rather be happy or right?” Too often I choose to be right. It’s especially problematic when I’m arguing with my 13-year-old son. I need to be reminded *often* to keep my mouth shut. Thank you for your amazing spirit and this up-lifting blog.

    1. You are most welcome Shawn. I think it’s in our nature to want to be right… but sometimes it can make situations worst. I’m still working on it as well.. All the best and thank you for sharing such a valuable contribution.
