The Facts of Life

Don’t you wish that life sometimes came with a set of instructions? I have noticed that when I am just exhausted or frustrated I tend to want to research and conduct an entire fact-finding mission to find answers. However, the real beauty of life is that we have the opportunity to make choices that will help us to become better citizens.

I am sure you all remember the sitcom “The Facts of Life.” Although, it was a comedy I found that it is a great tagline. Besides, I think you can make up your own rules to maintain accountability and a little bit of spice and sugar to add zest to your life. Really, its that simple.

So here goes, my list of The Facts of Life:

1. Life is what you make of it. Whether we want to believe this or not, it is true. ☺
2. You are in control of your choices.
3. Take a deep breath and smile, it will make a difference.
4. Make goals and achieve them.
5. Don’t take life so seriously
6. Worry less and enjoy your surroundings
7. Keep a good network of friends
8. Cherish your family
9. Create a map for what you want to accomplish, but don’t forget that detours may come along so be prepared for them.
10. Believe in hope and faith it is your spirituality that will guide you

It may sound cliché and you may have heard about these before, but it works for me. I am not saying that I am right or that I am wrong. It works for me and it has not failed me to date. So I encourage you to try this and if it does not work for you then modify it for yourself. We only have this lifetime to share our life with others and experience it to the fullest. So go for it. What are you waiting for?
