Sometimes it is difficult to start to write. With so much going on I have set aside a piece I had intended to have done last week. Oy vey. As I tidy my desk, tend to my e-mails, organize my papers and edit pictures that I am giving away for Christmas I catch myself procrastinating.
Perhaps, however, this procrastination was meant to be – perhaps I was supposed to find a list I wrote a month ago and had completely forgotten about.
Here it is:
Love, is all that matters.Find who you are so that you may attract it. Your must be that which you expect others to be.
Always start from within. When you commence from without you question what lies within.
Never fear failure. When you do, you lose track of success. Both work in tandem and are inseparable. Accept their inevitability as forces of balance in life.
Learn to breathe. It is often the small acts that prove most complicated.
Smile to yourself so that you may smile to the world.
Allow time to pass before answering hurtful comments. If answered quickly, you replicate the unkind energy.
Know yourself and befriend yourself so that you can live happily in harmony with who you are.
Ask so that you may hear. Listen so that you may know.
Listen so that you may be heard. Speak so that you may be seen. Look so that your heart can understand.
Appreciate that knowledge is infinite. That which lies beyond our realm of understanding is real.
Respect your limits, yet form no immovable boundaries. Lines were made to be moved. Nothing is immovable.
Sleep, not as a path to tomorrow but as a means of rest and recuperation.
Acknowledge your efforts and congratulate yourself. Appreciate what you do, so that you may recognize others
Look up and out with one eye, in and down with the other; balance.
Be patient. Apologize when you hurt others.
Say “thank you” more often than “sorry.
Do not judge, for it is wasteful.
