Tips for an Exceptional, Superb and Powerful Life, continued...

15. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

16. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

17. Don't compare your life with others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
18. Ladies- Go on and burn those 'special' scented candles, use the 600 thread count bed sheets, the good china and wear your fancy clothes now. Stop waiting for a special occasion. Every day is special.

19. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

20. Frame every so- called disaster with these words: 'In five years, will this matter?'

21. Forgive everyone for everything. (I think this is a really great one!)

22. What other people think of you is none of your business. (This one is just as good as the last one.)


it snowed on Saturday.

ha! I like that #22 - a very good, self preserving thought.

All your comments are mind-shaking thoughts that need action and make me want to do more changing. I love them all.
I fall victim to wanting to save for that special day, possibly from my Portuguese upbring. My Parents had a room that was only for company and special occasions. I vowed I would never do that. In my HOME every room is for living and enjoying.
Thanks for visiting and commenting on my Tuesday's World.

Not comparing life with others is a good one. There is so many factors that make life good.

I can´t forgive everyone for everything. It´s not possible.

Love ya lots,
