My Personal 10 Commandments

September 24, 2007

One of the groups to which I belong on Facebook (yes I’m on Facebook and MySpace, not that I really know how to most effectively use either!) is The Happiness Project. Gretchen Rubin is an author (working on a book on happiness) whose blog I discovered recently. Since we have that in common, I joined her group. One of the topics of discussion today is your own rules for living. I posted mine there and thought you all might be interested as well. I’d love to hear your own personal guidelines!

Aura’s Rules

1. Not everyone will like you (and that’s OK!)
2. Own your shit, but don’t borrow someone else’s.
3. You can always make more money, but you can’t make more time.
4. Your children are adults far longer than they are children.
5. Every day is an adventure.
6. This too shall pass.
7. Speak truth (wrapped in kindness when possible).
8. Breathe.
9. The journey is more important the the destination.
10. “I was sad that I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.”
