Those Golden Rules

Everyone has advice...or words to live by...or opinions that they are more than happy to share (sometimes even if you don't ask for it). 

Over the years these are my personal golden rules that I try to live by:

  • Take every opportunity to exercise and keep moving
  • Be gentle, with yourself and with others
  • Remember your P's: Pray & Praise continuously to God
  • Eat wholefully: Your meals should be colorful and bright (imagine a rainbow)
  • Let things move, inspire and stir you to tears
  • Black coffee: if its good coffee you shouldn't have to doctor it up
  • Dream Big...and then do something about it!
  • Don't be ruled by fear: purposefully put yourself in uncomfortable situations that make you push yourself to overcome those fears.
  • Make time for sleep
  • Laugh often and at every (appropriate...ish) opportunity
  • The only failure is to never try
  • Be disciplined
  • Become an expert at/of/about something
  • Take risks
  • Remember that anything of value or truly worth while requires effort
  • Use every opportunity to love
