My Approach to life

Hi everyone,

 

So I'm probably not the best person to give advice to others, but I am feeling pretty cheerful/content right now, despite all the junk life's been throwing at me recently. So anyway here's a few things I have opinions on. If nothing else it'll be nice for me to have them written down somewhere.

 

My Approach to Life:

 

-Learn how to be happy alone; if you don't enjoy your company why should anyone else?

 

-Always accept people's help and support, but always try to give more than you take.

 

-Don't freak out or be embarrassed when you don't know something; find out.

 

-Embrace people and things you don't understand; they're the ones you'll learn from.

 

-No one can make a fool of you, but you.

 

-Whenever you meet someone new assume you'll like them. If you don't it won't be your fault.

 

-Listen to people's advice. Make your own decisions.

 

-Things are fun: collect them, play with them, use them, but don't let them control you.

 

-Everyone has slightly different values and morals; that's fine.

 

-Confidence is the most attractive thing a person can wear; arrogance is the least.

 

-Don't let anyone intimidate you. Hold your head high when you walk. You know who you are; they don't.

 

-Trust people; they'll rarely let you down.

 

-Forgive them and get over it when they do.

 

-Take care of yourself; you're all you've got.

 

-Laugh

 

-Most offenses can be overcome with a smile and an apology.

 

-Be happy even if your circumstances try to dictate otherwise.

 

-Don't be afraid to cry; it makes you stronger.

 

-Never hold back a compliment.

 

-If they don't want you: leave. You can do better.

 

-Make a joke; make a friend

 

-In the words of Sheryl Crow: "If it makes you happy, it can't be that bad"

 

-If it doesn't make sense, turn it over and look again.

 

-Don't burn a bridge; just build a raft.

 

-If you don't like something, change it.

 

-If they don't like something...well that's really not your problem.

 

-Honesty is great; kindness is better.

 

-Don't expect too much.

 

-Hope for a great deal.

 

-People's intentions matter.

 

-Don't view things as absolute; it's all relative.

 

-Things get better and even when they don't new things come along to replace them.

 

-Don't give up, but don't be stubborn

 

-If it hurts deal with it, then learn from it.

 

-Be spontaneous; you can't get lost if you don't know where you're going.

I don't comment a lot, but I love Kevin's blogs, someone should write a musical called "Kevin!" based on his blogs.

 

Any takers?
