Dance Like No One is Watching

 

Hi, Chelsea here….Came across Rules for a Good Life and thought you might enjoy…#2 is my favorite and #3 is my next favorite.  Part of the reason I work in the grief support area is that I don’t think there is anything more important than to help someone who lost a loved one.  Thus, I do #2 with my whole heart!  See which rule is your favorite.  P.S.  I also like #16!

 

  1. Be kind. (Include yourself.)
  2. Find something you love to do and do it flat out – with your whole heart, fully engaged – as often as you can.
  3. Stop doing things you hate. Quit boredom. Give up worry. Wean yourself away from agreements that compromise your integrity and contracts (especially those unspoken, unwritten ones) that give you a stomachache.
  4. Tell the truth – begin with the truth about what you really want, who you really are. Jot down that thing you obsess about; that idea rolling around in the back of your mind. Promote that dream from ‘fantasy’ to ‘vision’ and start sketching out an action plan.
  5. Share. Right now. Even though you don’t have much – no matter how humble, a thoughtful gift is a gesture of such grace.
  6. Be encouraging – even when you’re not sure how they’ll EVER make money with that. (Remember: even the most successful people must take practice runs; you never know what skill someone’s building.)
  7. Wear natural fibers. Cotton, silk, wool, linen. They just feel better.
  8. Add beauty to the world. (include the world you live in, your home, your body, your cubicle.)
  9. Leave room for silences – in conversation; and in your day.  Find a place where you can be alone with your thoughts and go there.
  10. If you don’t know how to help someone who’s suffering, instead of worrying about them, say a prayer on their behalf. Then, trust the angels to deliver the support they need.
  11. Eat food that tastes good and, once eaten, leaves you feeling energized. Avoid food that leaves you feeling bloated, angry, spaced out or sick.
  12. Plant things in soil… actual soil. Preferably outside.
  13. Drink more water.
  14. Get enough sleep.
  15. Wear a hat that covers your ears in winter. In the summer, don’t forget the sunscreen.
  16. Naps are nice.
