‎10 Helpful Tips for Acquiring Peace of Mind......

I happened upon these "rules" originally written in Old English and thought I'd translate them out for you (with my own bit of twist added in), dear reader, to ponder. (the original author is unknown)

1. No one is perfect so do not try to be perfect yourself. Just be your perfectly imperfect self.

2. You cannot be all things to all people. This is just a recipe for failure.

3. Sometimes, it's best to leave things undone that ought to be done. Go with your instinct.

4. Do not spread yourself too thinly. You cannot be there for everyone, even though you'd like to be.

5. Learn to say no. (I've already blogged about this one because there is just so much to this)

6. You must always find time for yourself and be surround by a supportive network. Be with people who enrich your life, not suck you dry with their relentless needs and wants.

7. It's alright to switch yourself off and do nothing regularly. Seriously, make "taking a break" part of your routine. Everyone needs to be recharged.

8. Try not to be boring, untidy, inelegant, and unattractive at all times. Be your best and shine so that others may walk into your glow and effervescence. Lead by example.

9. Don't walk around feeling guilty all of the time. This does nothing but make you miserable and look like a martyr, and martyrs can be quite tiresome.

10.Lastly, never be your own worst enemy and always be your own best friend. Self-love is of utmost importance.

My intention is for you to "soak" these in and for them to assist you in having some peace of mind.
