A Few Good Life Rules

1. You cannot change what you refuse to confront.
2. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
In life, if you don't risk anything, you risk everything.
Trying to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.
5. It doesn't matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, the most important thing is that you are still trying.

6. If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay.
7. Making one person smile can change the world, maybe not the whole world, but their world.

8. Giving up doesn't always mean you're weak, sometimes it means you are strong enough and smart enough to let go and move on.
9. It is better to be alone, then to be in bad company.
10. If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.

11. Never do something permanently foolish just because you are temporarily upset.
12. Sometimes you need to distance yourself from the situation to see things clearly.
13. When you stop chasing the wrong things you give the right things a chance to catch you.
14. There isn't anything noble about being superior to another person. True nobility is in being superior to the person you once were.
15. The only expectations you should live up to are the ones you expect of yourself.

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! These are for sure one of my ever fav quotes among all the ones u shared. They give such a positive and encouraging message. I do agree with all the ones, especially the phrases n. 7, 8, 12, but most of all I really love the second to last, there isnt anything admirable on being superior to others, we have to be superior to the person we hard to do in the real life though, we often tend to repeat the same mistakes. Btw, thanks a million dear, yep, Id consider it especially in the cold season but I dont know if ever could be back as before, lol I lightened it too much!:) Kisses and happy Fri! xo

Kiss & Make-up said...

You must have been reading my mind, because I so needed this! Seeing these facts (because that's pretty much what they are) is eye opening.

Jackie Harrison said...

Edyta said...

The last one reminds me of something John Paul II used to say... Demand more from yourself and less from others :)

laviniah k said...

Wonderful post dear and so timely! Exactly what I needed to read, number 6 really speaks to me!
Thanks for sharing, hope you've had a great week love! As ever thanks for your sweet comments :)


Katie said...

"the only expectations you should live up to are the ones you expect of yourself" really resonates with me at the moment, with loads of pressure from teachers and parents to do well in school but not putting enough pressure on myself to do well... :/ I hope you have a good weekend, I always enjoy your thoughts and positive vibes on a Friday! xx

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

So wise and so true! I was just telling someone something along the lines of no. 15 the day.

Yes some stylish ladies in Japan can pull off the blonde hair but they usually have fair coloring and have the fashion sense to match. I've seen way too many people with neither who attempt the look and just fail.

Have a lovely weekend dear Sam!

Very true and wise sayings; I totally agree with everything but I was most touched by 1, 2, 10, 11 and 12. This Friday inspiration is just one more reason why your blog is so awesome.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

#11 is the best. Truer words were never spoken. Happy Friday!

Carmen said...

I have learnt that 2 is oh so true! Last year when I lost some friends I finally took the courage to make an internship at a radio station where I got to know way cooler people who love me for who I am which makes me so happy and I feel my life is way better now than before :)

Mindy Fan said...

All these amendments are so true!! #1, 3, 13, 14, and 15 are so true!
I do agree that you cannot change what you refuse to face! I have been there once and learned my lesson!

Jess said...

Amazing!! Have a great weekend! =)

You can't be perfect in our society, you can accept and love yourself, that's way better than trying to be someone else's idea of perfect. Thanks for these inspiring words Sam #4 is my favourite.
Thanks again for the visit Sam, actually I don't really use anything expensive on my hair, just a normal shampoo and conditioner, some serum to remove the frizz that's it. I'm not really into beauty stuff, I actually hate wearing make up, I only wear lipstick, lipgloss and some eyeshadow most of the time. I'm too lazy to do the full make up LOL!! :)

Adriana Leandro said...

I agree. Beautiful words. Kisses.

Tamara Chloé said...

Such beautiful and wise words Sam!!

Sometimes we all need a little bit of reminding of what's really important in life!
