...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 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.

When you read the words it seems so simple.

It's all in the application... don't forget to breath!
