Ten Good Rules to Live By



1. Realise your own worth. Avoid comparing yourself with others. Each of us is special, because we are different one from the other.

2. Set your own goals based on what is important to you, not what others think is important. Only you know what is best for you.

3. Treasure the things that are closest to your heart. Cherish them as you would your life, without them life is meaningless.

4. Live your life one day at a time, in the present, each day to its fullest. Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future.

5. Be relentless when you have something to offer; never give up. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

6. Embrace risk, don’t be afraid. We learn how to be brave by taking chances.

7. Love deeply, freely, and with all your heart. The quickest way to receive love is to give love, the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly, the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

8. Live your dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope, to be without hope is to be without purpose.

9. Slow down. Don’t run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savoured, every step of the way.

10. Surrender to your destiny and have faith that it will unfold as it should. Choose to be happy, at peace and one with the universe.

Sam,
Hi sweetie! I have missed you dear. I just wanted to stop by and let you know I haven't forgotten you and I really love this post! Seriously, I need to live by every one of these. Have a great end of the week and enjoy your weekend and hope you will stop by when you get a chance. I have a new post. Nothing too crazy or anything, but just some inspiration I know you will appreciate. Hugs dear!

Amazing words for daily inspiration. If life is a race, chasing your dream should be your aim, not competing with others, but life isn't a race it's not about who finishes first .The real winner is the one who makes the most of it. Happy friday Sam!! xo

Sam, I feel that 6 & 8 are deeply connected - there is not one without the other. I feel I should apply this more in my life :)

Dear Sam, I love your Friday Frills, as you know! All the points today are excellent, but to me #1, #2 and #8 are special. I didn't have a bad week, nor was it amazing (till now... now I'm going to tour the city :), but from where you least expect I heard very bad words that hurt me very much, on a topic that also hurts me a lot. I'm trying to cope with both things, and I just don't know how. But your words on Friday always help me smile! Thank you so much for that! I hope you hae a great weekend! denisesplanet.com

Larissa said...

Thank you so much for your comment and your advice Sam! I love those ten points and I agree to all of them! I feel that too many of us are afraid of doing what they really love and I think the most important is to learn to believe in yourself and to have the courage to follow your real goals and interests :) I am trying this now! The vacation in the US gave me new strenght, confidence and courage :)
Lots of love!

I agree with every single one of these rules. The most important I feel are trying not to make comparisons with others, slowing down and living in the present. Love the image - I've always liked scooters. They are fun, stylish and attractive!

Those rules are so true!
Especially the first one!!!
