Simple Formula for Living

The list below seems to provide quite a good guide for some daily living aspirations. I am not entirely sure where it comes from (and there seem to be minor variations in versions of it). One posting of it online that I have come across suggests that it was originally in a Quaker newsletter:

Live beneath your means.
Return everything you borrow.
Stop blaming other people.
Admit it when you make a mistake.
Give clothes not worn in 3 years to charity.
Do something nice and try not to get caught.
Listen more talk less.
Every day take a 30 minute walk.
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
Be on time.
Don't make excuses.
Don't argue.
Get organized.

Be kind to unkind people.
Let someone cut ahead of you in line.
Take time to be alone.

Cultivate good manners.
Be humble.
Realize and accept that life isn't fair.
Know when to  keep your mouth shut.
Go an entire day without criticizing anyone.
Learn from the past.
Plan for the future.
Live in the present
Don't sweat the small
stuff.
It's all small stuff.

Looking for Positives

When something goes wrong, whether because of your own actions or because of events entirely beyond your control, it can be easy to see only the negatives and to feel that nothing can help or will get better or that what has been done cannot be reversed.  It is true that you cannot go back and change what has happened (though in some situations you can remedy it). However, even the darkest situation such as the death of a loved one or a dire change in your personal or relationship circumstances can bring with it positives. These can take many forms such as the impetus to make positive changes in your life or relationships or a new or deeper perspective on a situation or a chain of events set in motion which has unexpected upsides.

If you find yourself in a difficult situation, it is right to recognise accurately the difficulties that are presented but it is equally important to acknowledge or find genuine positives arising from the situation, as this will help you to maintain balance and move forward. So if you can, when you are experiencing difficulties, look for and remind yourself of any of the positives that co-exist or have arisen from the situation and use them to build your resilience and future.
