This is a list of things that I have found to be true. They have had an absolute profound effect on my life.
1. WHOEVER HAS THE MOST FUN WINS!
I can't remember where I saw this or who said it originally, but this one is one of my most favourite rules and I try to live by this every single day, even on the days where is feels like my check-engine light has been on for a while. This is one sure fire way to make it feel like you are living your best life.
2. EVERYTHING IS FIGUREOUTABLE
Thank you Marie Forleo for this golden nugget. When you truly understand this concept, wow, does your whole world not change. Suddenly nothing is a problem anymore. Learning how to make everything work for you instead of against you is one of the greatest gifts you will ever give yourself.
3. ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH
Now, let's be clear I'm not saying be mean or provocative and unnecessary. I am saying be honest - and as kind and as clear as possible - independent of the outcome. Your life is your adventure and if you are manipulating your own speech, you are not living it.
4. DON'T TAKE ADVICE FROM PEOPE YOU WOULDN'T TRADE LIVES WITH
Well this is a humdinger. We have all been at the receiving end of some unsolicited advice. And man, can that grind your bones. Next time, someone says something, be it that certain aunty at Christmas or the rando on the internet, ask yourself "Would I trade lives with this person? Do I even like this person?" I have found this to give your soul the most peace.
5. IF YOU PLAN AND EXECUTE THE THINGS YOU NEED TO DO, THE UNFORSEEN WON'T BE SUCH A BIG DEAL.
Raise your hand if you have ever been victimized by Regina George? lifts both hands. As an easy example: Your house is a mess, because you haven't stayed on top of cleaning and packing things away for a week. Your friend wants to come visit, you feel all flustered and irritated, because now you have to rush to at least get some things done, and you don't feel like it blah blah blah. See where I'm going with this. The same applies to everything else in your life, if you do the things you need to, unforseens aren't a big deal.
