I received an awesome New Years greeting on my cell phone from a dear friend, Wajid Mahmood. Its called Handbook 2013.
I agree with most of what is advised:
Drink plenty of water
Eat breakfast like a king; Lunch like a prince; Dinner like a beggar
Live with 3 E’s: Energy, Enthusiasm, Empathy
Play more games
Read more books than you did in 2012
Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes every day
Sleep for 7 hours (I beg to disagree here!! 5 should be alright!)
Take a 10-30 minute walk daily. And smile when you walk!
Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
Dont take yourself seriously. No one else does!
Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip
Dream more while you are awake
Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need
Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner their past mistakes. This could ruin your present happiness
Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Love everyone
Make peace with your past so it doesn’t spoil your present
No one is in charge of your happiness except YOU
Smile & laugh more
You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree
Call your family often
Each day give something good to others
Forgive everyone everything
Spend time with people over 70 & under 6
Try to make at least 3 people smile each day
What others think of you is none of your business
Do the right thing
God heals everything
However good or bad a situation is, it will change
No matter how you feel, Get Up, Dress Up & Show Up.
The best is yet to come
When waking up, thank God for it
You inner most is always happy. So, be happy.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Some of the above advices are by Regina Brett which I have posted earlier in this blog. You can read them here. Others, I am not aware of. If any of you know who wrote them, please let me know to give credit to the awesome person/s.
I am sure you were already doing most of the things mentioned above. If you have missed any, get on with it!! Life’s too short!
I wish for you a life blessed with happiness, love, health, peace, prosperity & contentment.
And may you dream big dreams & achieve them.
And may you become the person you aspire to.
Stay blessed. Stay happy.
PS: No, I won’t talk about new years resolutions!!!
