8 Rules To A Better Life…

With the start of a new year we all get caught up with what we want and that is awesome.

When I started to think about what I want outta life this year I realized I want to be happy. Now don’t get me wrong I am generally a happy person but I want to be truly happy. In 2012 I had my ups and downs as did the rest of us. I got to thinking about it and I realized that most of 2012 I was not really happy with things although I always outwardly showed that I was. Because lets be real there is nothing worse than having a Negative Nancy around. I do not want my unhappiness to impact someone else. Nor will I let my unhappiness impact someone else. 

I was on Pinterest the other day and I came across this gem…
It got me to think and boy do I do that well. 
I personally do not like to hate. It’s a nasty word. There is just so much negativity in it and I try to stay away from it. 
We are all human. We all have worries in life. I’m going to try to worry less. 
I think I do pretty well here. I don’t want for anything. If I need something I go out and get it. I do not feel a need to have the latest and greatest of this that or the other thing. I am content with having cereal for breakfast from time to time. I can and do this! 
I expect nothing from anyone. I expect a lot from myself. I find that when I expect from someone else and that person does not meet my expectations I get let down. I do not like that feeling so I expect nothing from anyone. 
This is something I think I personally can work on. Sure I give from time to time. I go through my clothes and give them to good will. I give my time to teach at the gym which I love. But I feel like I want and need to give more. 
Do you know how far a smile can go? It is amazing how when one person smiles it makes everyone around them smile. I like to smile. It makes me feel good. 

Sure we all love someone but do you live with love daily? I know I don’t always do this. I want to LOVE life. Heck my motto in live is Live.Laugh.Love and I went as far as getting it tattooed on my wrist as a daily reminder. 

I have to admit I have dropped the ball with my relationship with God. Does that make me a bad person? I do not think so but I know I need to get myself back to that happy place with the Mr. I need to get my butt in gear with this.
